I was killed in a shoot out with Wyatt Earp and placed on display a pine box on main street. Wyatt is a really, really fast draw. I thought I could take him but boy was I wrong.
We ride a lot but we also take some time to admire each other's rides too.
The Best Western was our ride headquarters this year. They have a wonderful property and the staff was fantastic. Thank you Best Western!
Ready to ride.

The Christian Motorcycling Association supported this year's TAR. Thank you to Tim, Donna, and the CMA!
I love this paint job.

Scott and John are both terrific riders and just all around great guys.
High rise deer stand condominium, Texas hill country style.
Even KTMs get flats. Scott hit a rock at speed and got a pinch flat. A little roadside repair and we got back on our way.
Izzy contemplating the wonders of the Universe while the tire repair is underway. Either that or he was just a little bored. :)
Once again we prove that you must carry all the necessary tire repair tools with you when adventure riding. Scott demonstrates and with a smile too.
Jarrett watching the tube changing action.
How many riders does it take to fix a flat? 12. Two to change the tube while the other 10 watch and take pictures.
Cedar Creek Road is a really fun dual sport road, as shown by Tommi.
This old shack is an icon of the Texas dual sport community. You must have your picture taken by this old place if you are a Texas adventure rider. That's the rule.
Tommi earns his official "Texas Adventure Rider" title by having his pic taken by the old shack.
I position myself so I could get an action picture of Rusty crossing the deep section of this low water crossing. But he tricked me by finding a shallow section to ride across.
Tommi'e 800GS earning it's water wings.
I wanted to get a picture of Clark crossing the river so he helped me out by stopping mid-crossing. Thank you, Clark.
Big A wins the "cross with gusto" award of the day.
Big A enjoyed his first crossing so much he decided to do it a second time.
