Nice Country ride to Shiner TX.

**Update**

Just a FYI for those of you that don't know, What-A-Burger is across Hwy 6 from Sam's and next to HEB.  This location is kind of new and does not show up on any aerial satellite photos Maps that I can find.

Weather looking good.

We will meet at the What-A-Burger off Hwy 6 and Hwy 90 across from Sam's.  The What-A-Burger is on Hwy 6..

I was thinking a ride to Shiner TX and stop by the (Spoetzl Brewery) in Shiner TX West of Hallettsville. There are some nice country roads on the way to Shiner.. Head out Saturday morning taking Hwy 90 then some really back roads 2437 to 530 etc.

The Brewery does not have tours on Saturday but they do have a Store front for buying Shiner Merchandise.. They don't sell beer so if you were thinking that, don't ;-)...

This will be a nice ride over 110 miles one way so plan on making it a day with a lunch stop in between.

Mileage one way = 123   
Total Ridding Time ridding = 2.45

I posted the mileage for FCRC Mileage Recognition Program.

    I learned two things today, how long I can go between my fuel light coming on, and having to switch to reserve, and ALWAYS! Start with a full tank. :) Nice ride, and nice to see you all again.

    Ever since I had new pipes put on my bike I can only go about 105 miles on a tank. Are we planning on stopping before the 130 miles noted above?

    I would REALLY like to go on this one - but that's right before our cruise, so I doubt Mike can get three weekends off in a row. :(

      A former member

      Okay...we'll be cruising 2/23-3/2, so the weekends of 2/20 & 3/9 are also out for us, unless Mike's boss has a brainfart & gives him three weekends off in a row. We'll just have to do it again if we miss this one! :)

      November 30, 2013

    • Harold

      OK thanks Trish. I'll keep an eye on the weather when it gets close I have no problem moving it to a warmer date lol. Would like to see you guy's go.
