Let’s face it, August is hot as hell in Texas. No person in their right mind would venture out of air conditioned comfort mid-day in Austin heat. No person, that is, unless it is a bunch of stir crazy bikers. Sometimes the lure of the road and the camaraderie of good friends of like mind trumps any concerns about weather or inhuman temperatures.
Thus it was that four friends, Phil Auldridge, Ben Schotz, Corey, and Nathan Gibson, with his friend Suzie as chief navigator, struck off near mid-day on a recent summer day for a little adventure ride down Hill Country back roads for lunch and back.
The group’s steeds ran the gamut: Vintage Norton, BMW airhead, Harley road bike, and a Yamaha V-twin. Never mind, the language of biking is universal, regardless of the make and model you are on.
For those of you who find yourselves transportation-challenged and constrained to 4 wheel vehicles, we offer our condolences, as well as this brief video to provide a few vicarious thrills from the road!
