Leaving Alpine Thursday morning, Wayne and I were retracing our route. Back through Marathon, Sanderson, Langtry and Comstock--heading toward the Texas Hill Country. The weather was threatening. Cloud heavy, seeming to be just above heads, black with rain but we luckily made it the three hundred miles to Campwood without getting wet.
Finally in the Hill Country, the sun broke through the clouds and the day was perfect. Campwood, Rocksprings and Leakey, home to the "twisted Sisters",Texas' premier riding roads. The "Twisted Sisters, Highways 335, 336 and 337. One hundred miles of twisted and mountainous narrow roads. A rider's delight.
Wayne loves this area and I am fond of it too. But before departing we had to make a run up to the intersection of Highways 41 and 83 to Garven's General Store! Why? The best BBQ sandwiches in Texas, bar none.
Two sandwiches later and we were barreling 76 miles down Hwy 83 to Uvalde, Texas. Uvalde would be our stop for Thursday night. A good night's rest and Wayne and I would speed to Dilley, Tx to Moto Hanks BMW Shop, simply the best BMW oilhead shop in Mexico or the southwest USA. My steady mount has a slight oil leak in the final drive. Hank has the proper oil seal. I will just bet that he knows how to install it.
