This road runs out of Austin to the northwest and then skirts along the north edge of Lake Travis. Just a little out of Austin you will pass the famous County Line BBQ on the Colorado River.

On the stretch that is the north side of the lake there are some curves that require the rider to slow to about 10mph to negotiate; there is some gravel present. Note: IF THE SIGN SAYS 10MPH, BETTER GO 10MPH.

Plenty of stops in Austin, in Four Corners and also Volente. If you continue on you will hit FM 1431 that will take you all the way to Marble Falls.

Comment: DO NOT BE RUSHED ON THIS ROAD!!! If you aren't comfortable, make them pass! This is a great ride for twisties and views and very technical riding. Mind the speed limits, and hairpin turns, you will see a few corners where pegs dragged and the bike dropped into the hole due to lack of speed or ability. My wife followed me on her bike and we were doing fine but we got caught by about 6 guys on adventure bikes who wanted to go faster than we were going right as we went into the hardcore twisties, so they probably turned around and ran it again... but when we dropped into town there was Johnny Law sitting there waiting for us so I probably saved them a few hundred in welcome to Texas fees. :)

Comment: Very nice but scary at times especially when your bike wants to go faster. On a crotch rocket it is very adrenalin-filled , this is a road for the more experienced sports bike rider every curve is a blind one and you gota watch out for school buses and 18 wheelers ,the first time i remember goin down a big hill and down the hill was a big curve dont wana run off the road on that one..after a couple times it gets more fun once you know the road

Comment: This is one of the best Texas rides I have been on. I only gave it 4, because we did the 1500 miles around TN and NC last summer and that is hard to beat. The twisties around the lake are a blast. Although the ride is not super long. Great scenery as well. For a break, there are several places to pull off on dead end roads and walk closer to the lake. Be cautious as everyone mentioned. Watch out for slow cars as well. On the way back we stopped by the Uncle Billys Brew and Que by the Oasis on Lake Travis. Very good microbrews and bbq. You can also take a right by the Oasis for a quick 10 minute scenic ride. The road dead ends... just turn around and go back.

Comment: This was a fun road to ride. Scenery is nice, bunch of trees plus houses here and there. Nice for a passenger to look at but driver needs to pay attention to road, signs, and speed limit. Its an exciting ride with turns after turns with multiple hills. Excellent ride!!!

Comment: Brother, you are so right- when it says 10MPH on Lime Creek Rd, you don't want to be going 11! Good way for your motorcycle to end up in a tree. It is a beautiful ride, though!

Comment: Great road for twisties and rolling hills. Lots of fun in the turns and curves. Use care since you are sharing the road with lots of others. Saw a car rollover in the ditch about ten miles out of Marble Falls. A few places to stop along the way and great food at either end................1
