    Riding areas and Google maps

    Are you guys all Googling your riding areas? We have a spot that we have been going to for over a year now and 97gpsleeper pulled up the map and did some studing on it. Turns out there were more creeks off of the main bayou then we thought. The 2 of us took a sweet 6-7 mile ride yesterday on some unchartered (to us) waters and had a blast. Lots of twisties and straight aways with wide bodies of water and no trees or trash. I will post more details in the Texas rides section on the forum.

    Tell Debbie that there are no trees hanging over the water so she should be safe.
    Next time we go back to Graham's, I'm gonna bring a helment for her.
