That is a fine looking motorcycle. Definitely Texas!

Where is that photo taken? Looks like it might be in the Austin area. I'm from Houston, but I would ride my Stratoliner S to Austin to get a background like that.

Excellent bike, excellent photo.

bevo1981,

Thanks for the location. Now I have to wait for the weather to cooperate. I couldn't survive a 350 mile round trip when the temperature is over 100 degrees.

Update: I found it on Google Map and discover I have ridden within spittin' distance everytime I take FM 2222 to Volante and Lime Creek Rd. I can't believe I missed this great photo op all these years.
