    Coming from the east into sisters, If you go Left RIGHT out of town, First Left lane, It takes you to the lava area and Twisted road on Narrow two lane..
    Loop on the map and it will show the route.. I do Prefer to go to the North and then around and back UP the Lava road.. Corners much nicer Up Hill rather than down.. it IS a must ride and see....

    IF traffic is BUSSY in town(headed east thru town) it can be a Long stop and go process to go 3 blocks... I head one block north (Left), then take a Right and run Parallel with main street headed east... and avert ALL the traffic... stopping at a Shell Gas on the right a few blocks and Gas there.. Right next door to a Very Good BBQ Not a fancy restaurant but Good ... Your choice of Cool Ones there also..

    That Whole area is a good ride... I came in from E. Wa. Riding? down toward John Day But never on a free way type.

    I took the Old route 66 into Prineville and stayed in a low $$ motel (clean and 49$ after tax) City Center Motel rm# 25 right in the middle of the motel and next to the ice machine.(Motel on left side going east from sisters..541-447-5522)...

    Big old style ICE CREAM and Hamburger shop, right there also, Open Early for breakfast and late for dinner... Nothing fancy but good..

    Enjoy your ride,,,"Get Your Kicks On Route 66"

    That ride from slidell to san tone down I-10 aint no fun did it a few years ago left orleans after fat tues parade only made it to lake chuck,left next morning went to san antonio visit my brother that is one long boring ride.It depends on which route your taking and how far you want to get that first day.I like to stay in fredricksburg its about 50-60 miles from leaky so ride out in the morn for great rides then come back at night and enjoy great german food and music,we stayed at the fredricksburg inn ,its a block from main street leave the ride at the motel and walk,dont have to worry about dwi that way,also some good rides north of there ,BTW that area is full of four legged creatures!! I would avoid riding at dusk or dawn if at all possible,have fun if youve never been there before youll come back again,its a spring ritual for us from fort worth its only 4-5 hour ride..Tom..

    The Wife & I make that trip about 5 times a year. Bandera is one of the best riding areas around. The only downer to your trip will be Houston. When I ride alone I go straight through on I-10, If the Wife is on hers with me we take the Beltway 8 (Toll). Just time it so that you dont get caught in rush hour traffic. Not sure of where you will be staying but Pioneer RV Resort in Bandera has a converted Caboose that is set up very nicely. It rents for @ 90 bucks a night. There are no 3 or 4 star hotels in Bandera, Need to go to Kerr Ville for that. Hi-way 16N to KerrVille is allso a good ride. Most all the roads in that area are in great shape. Watch Hi-Way 336, it has the cattle gaurds across it. Other than that , I wish we were going . Enjoy it.:cheers

    I did the ROT (republic of texas rally) two years ago, HOT very HOT.... I started off in Az. and took two days to hit the rally in Austin...
    WATER NEEDED :newsmile022: and patience with the people who drive their 4 wheel death traps there in Austin to Alamo. :lolrollingMHO

    Man, I liked 80mph on the freeways but would rather ride back roads BUT not in that heat...

    Az. High Desert is cooler than there.:D
