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.

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.

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?

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.
