Wednesday – Wednesday – Wednesday
Our first meet of the month will be this Wednesday…November 7th…at El Fenix in Grapevine…7PM. Come out for cold beer and Mexican food…bike talk…& ride planning, See you there.
The Austin TARA (Texas Adventure Riders Association) Chapter sponsors a monthly dual sport adventure ride the first Saturday of every month. All riders are invited to attend.
We meet at 8:30 am at the Texaco gas station/convenience store, 18901 Hamilton Pool Road, Dripping Springs, 78620 (intersection of Hwy 12 and Hamilton Pool Rd/3238). Stands up at 9 am.
Every month we ride a different route to keep things interesting. The planned routes include both paved and off-pavement riding and are suitable for any street-legal dual sport adventure bike.
October’s ride is particularly noteworthy because we are riding the infamous James River route, which includes the biggest, most fun (and slickest) water crossing in the entire state of Texas.
There is no designated ride leader for the monthly ride (i.e. no one is in charge). Riders self-organize into small groups and then enjoy a fun day in the Texas hill country.
What if the weather is bad? The ride still occurs. There is a chance you may be the only rider to show up, but the ride is never cancelled. This way, no matter what the weather forecast, those riders who want to ride always have a scheduled ride.
What if there is an event (such as a rally) scheduled for that same weekend? The first Saturday ride is still on. This way those riders who aren’t attending the other ride/rally have a scheduled Saturday ride they can attend.
What if someone else is organizing a day ride on Sunday? All other rides are in addition to the Saturday ride, not a replacement for the Saturday ride.
The first Saturday ride is never cancelled. It is always on.
The Austin monthly 1st Thursday meet and greet is this week from 6 pm – 8 pm. Remember, we have moved to Opal Divine’s Austin Grill, 2200 South IH 35 Frontage Road, Austin 78704.

All riders are welcome and encouraged to join us.
Ride your motorcycle if you want. Drive your car if that works better for you.
The main point is to get together, make new friends, visit with old friends, and talk about dual sport adventure motorcycling.
We will meet in Opal Divine’s Austin Grill (inside the Best Western hotel) in south Austin. Let’s get together and tell riding stories and enjoy a meal. We are a friendly bunch and all are welcome to join us.
There is no cost to attend other than what you spend on eating and drinking.
Feel free to come early or stay late.
