With such a beautiful coverage of the whole journey and what to expect from the ride this is a definite one for me to try in the near future! Awesome photographs of the mountains and the bluebonnets were lovely, lol!!:) Really exciting and the places you pass through are really great especially the mountains on either side of you!! All in all, the 125 miles ride to the Hard 8 BBQ with all the details of the ride given is something to try out!!Vehicle Wrap

This is a great ride for scenery. Just a little warning dont be in a hurry, the curves can be tricky. Take a pit stop in Lone Camp you wont be dissapointed. The pie is to die for and the food is outstanding. Its not a bad place to stop just for a cold coke or a cold beer to go!! Have fun and be safe!!

I've been to some of the places he talks about, but not yet on my motorcycle. his ride is in some really awesome scenic area. And in Stevensville, right across the street from the National Guard Armory, is one of the best BarbeQue places I have been to. Its a place a lot of Rodeo stars hang out at when they come to town.
