Description

Texas is big and amazingly diverse. It has more than 3 million acres of inland lakes and rivers, 600 miles of oceanfront, and countless bayous and swamps in the eastern part of the state. More than 20 million acres of Texas are covered with trees. And, most important to motorcyclists, it has almost 100 mountains that exceed 5,000 feet in elevation -- with eight exceeding 8,000 feet -- each conveniently adorned with smooth roads that are waiting for adventurous riders. From ocean-side lobster shacks with the best chowder outside of New England to lush forest highways that wind through bursting riverbeds in the shadows of snow-capped mountain peaks, a great riding day is guaranteed. Davis has laid out a choice sampling of the best roads to ride, the best restaurants along the way, and the best times to see (or avoid) the hot tourist spots. And, with this new, updated second edition, he has expanded his coverage to include excursions into Northern Mexico to experience the incredible Copper Canyon, the awesome Sierra Madre Mountains, and a very special culture.
