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 in the Goodwill parking lot, 7100 W. US Hwy 290 Service Rd, Austin, 78736. Stands up at 9 am. Please have a full tank of gas when you show up.
There is a Jim’s restaurant next door – come early if you want to eat before we leave.
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. You can download the route gps files below.
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.
This month we are riding the Fulton Ranch Road route.

The regularly scheduled Austin monthly meet and greet is on for Thursday, Jan 4th at Twin Peaks restaurant, 701 E. Stassney Lane, Austin 78745 from 6 – 8 pm.
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 Twin Peaks restaurant on Stassney Lane in south Austin. It will be cold so we will be sitting inside – usually we grab one of the larger tables in the back. We aren’t hard to find and are often wearing adventure motorcycle themed hats, shirts, jackets, etc.
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.
Hey guys…Just to start off 2018 in a confusing way….our 1st Tuesday get together will be held on January 9…which is actually the 2nd Tuesday. I didn’t figure we would have too many guys make it on January 2…since its the first day back to work after the holidays.
I was finally able to reserve the room at Spring Creek BBQ in Grapevine…so that’s where we will meet on January 9…at 7PM. The address is: 315 State Highway 114W, GV, 76051.
Rides: If anyone is planning rides…feel free to post them here, and come on the 9th so that you can tell the other guys!
I’m hoping to get out to Barnwell Mtn sometime around the middle of the month…for a dirt bike day. The date will just depend on work…and the weather forecast.
Hope to see you guys on the 9th at Spring Creek. Happy New Year! Hoping for lots of good riding in 2018!
