Time for my inaugural ride and camp trip on the TW. I’m set to for 240+ miles of northeast Texas cotton and cow towns. Starting in Midlothian, TX and finishing on the Trinity River near downtown Dallas. Along the way I’ll be keeping my eye out anything of historic or architectural interest. The bike is still largely stock. I have added an Action Packer, LED brake light, and a Coleman seat pad. Usually when I’m road tripping with the family, we’re all too anxious to stop and take in the back country sights. So this trip is dedicated to those sights. What Google Maps says is a 5 hour trip is going to take me 2 days. I’ve got gas stations, banks, school houses, trestles, a depot, and a ton of dirt road to explore and photograph. I’ll spend my night tarp camping at Purtis Creek SP, something I’ve also never done before. I'll be departing early next week if the weather permits, but I'll be checking back in with pics of my load plan updates and a shakedown of the tarp tent setup before I leave. This is why I bought this bike, to enjoy things off the beaten path, and I can't wait.
