    Here is an 83 mile stretch from Ozona to Comstock that looks to be a good ride. Also the next town 35 miles east (Sonora) has one of the best Underground Caverns you will see anywhere it that sorta thing interest you.

    State Route 163, Texas

    This website will show you other routes in the area as well.

    We just ran the 3 Twisted Sisters this past weekend which is about 85 SE of Sonora and made a detour to Sonora just to tour the Cavern. Well worth the effort.

    I can't help with the question but seeing the name Ozona brought back bad memories. Between 20 and 23 years ago I had to go to Ozona twice a year for a week to calibrate gas well meters. The best points of the co-worker I had to go with could only be decribed by words I can't say on here. It was not pleasant.
