Safe at home.
Overall, a fantastic trip. The weatherman barfed on the hurricane winds this morning, however. Said NW15. Try NW50+. I was up in the canyon heights on 337 and have never ridden in anything like it. Feet getting blasted off the foot boards at times. Not a good feeling. Cut it off in Vanderpool and took 39 (as Les reported, beautiful, twisty route) into Kerrville. Pretty great riding rest of the day. Bluebonnets everywhere!
I did nearly run out of gas for the first time. Left FBurg expecting some sort of gas between FBurg, enchanted rock, and Llano. Nothing. Rolled into Llano on ďcímon babyĒ-s and fumes. 158 miles on one tank!!!! (Roadliner = 4.5 gallon tank). Unprecedented. 20+ on reserve. I choose to think of it as the Miracle of the Gallons.
Bottom line: wimped out on the bulk of the Sisters. Still did about 500 miles, though, and had a great time. Iíll go back in April and right the wrong.
