"I am enthusiastic over humanity's extraordinary and sometimes very timely ingenuities. If you are in a shipwreck and all the boats are gone, a piano top buoyant enough to keep you afloat that comes along makes a fortuitous life preserver. But this is not to say that the best way to design a life preserver is in the form of a piano top.
I think we are clinging to a great many piano tops in accepting yesterday's fortuitous contrivings as constituting the only means for solving a given problem." - R. Buckminster Fuller

Garage
I was in Austin last week for a motorcycle safety presentation. I didn't bring the bike though. It was a job getting the car out of the garage.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html

Please vote in the poll on what Strom(s) you have at https://www.stromtrooper.com/informat...-you-have.html

Cool. I am moving to Austin in a week with my Strom and am just wanting to see who all is in the area.

Leakey, as in the city. Ride the "Texas Threes" (FM/Ranch roads around Leakey that start with the number "3"). Do a Google search on Ranch Roads 335, 336, & 337a and add the word "Texas" and "motorcycle" and you will get links-o-plenty.

It is a great ride. He is a short vid I did awhile back to give you some idea of the terrain, etc: YouTube - Texas 3s Aug2007

Yes, the "Leakey loop" we called it. Great riding. Stayed a few days at a camp ground that focused on bikes near there. I need to get back down there. Welcome to TX.

2007 Triumph Bonneville
2007 DL650 (Prev bike)
