Who live near Austin Tx

I see groups of street owners in India taking group rides, I am ready to do the same. Speak up if you own or will own a Harley Street near Austin Texas USA.

Have a Peachy Day.

Let's ride The Hill Country, Twisted Sisters.
I'm not comfortable posting info beforehand. Is there a way to contact local forum members privately?

Yes, I will collect a list. Have you all heard of the Twisted Sisters? A group of Street riders doing this would be awesome. Spock mentioned this and I had it in mind also.

Have a Peachy Day.

I have heard of Twisted Sisters and read about it only yesterday. My first thoughts were... this would be a fun weekend...

The article also said it can be something of a dangerous run and, from time to time, someone is injured on one of the sharp turns...

I guess ya gotta be careful out there.. But I do want to go.

Get on Youtube and take look, a very challenging ride. There is one with a guy on his first ride there dumping it. I do not know if I have enough experience. I have been out riding the Texas Hill Country but nothing matches these twists. Need more practice. How about others, who has made this ride?

Have a Peachy Day.

The majority of injured motorcyclists are sport-bike riders on the 36, 335, 336 roads (Twisted Sisters). Sport-bike riders tend to be younger and in my opinion, more thrill seeking. In my job for a time I was involved in motorcycle safety in TX. Don't ask me for any specific statistics, though- I've slept since then.
With an adequate pre-ride briefing, adhering to the rules, and a good road captain, any rider or group should have no difficulty. Gotta respect the Sisters. Don't think it is a race. The scenery is spectacular, and the ride is fun.
