We have taken that road on bike, hella hella fun road, like a roller coaster with a nice view. There's one turn on that road that's almost too tight for a miata, it turns back on itself so hard even on a bike you feel like you're about to start concrete surfing.

You've finally got a car worth takin' down roads like this and you're bailing on the only town in Texas where your rainbow colored undies fit in?

Sorry to hear.

Default If you're going to take a drive...

...take a real drive.

Yesterday's trip, left about 9am and was home before the kids got back from school. Lunch was at: BENT RIM GRILL - Welcome to the Bent Rim Grill in Leakey, Texas

Hawaii is to the United States as Austin is to California, lol.

The only thing stopping me from moving to Austin after school is the 6 different road courses within a 5 hour drive of my house in SLO.

All I know is Daniel Johnston lived there for a long time and they have a pretty good music scene. Otherwise, its Texas and from what I've seen there; its remarkably similar to my ******* (aka godlike).

MSR Houston is pretty flat, but nice, new, and smooth. It's fun, but expensive unless you have the right hookup
