I think this route would probably be better since everything after 3478 is kind of straight and boring.

How do you people even come up with these routes? They look so beautiful once you've got them routed out, but I'd never be able to find good loops just staring at the map, there'd be too much guesswork.

I never realized just how far behind us you were the whole time.

It was actually pretty difficult, since most of the roads are straight with only slight curves, and whenever I did find a windy fun looking road on Google Maps, it almost always turned out to be dirt.

Fortunately Bing uses a different color for unpaved roads, but it was still pretty hard to find enough that looked decent to complete a route.

You guys were bunched up a bit, and I didn't want to get tangled up in it when one of you went full spaghetti and crashed. The last meet I was at an RSX understeered into a guardrail.

Stiff swaybars male the car more reactive to bumps, giving a less stable appearance.

Agreed, not only that, but there's no paved roads north and east of Houston, however west of Houston most of the small roads are paved at the very least.

Anyway I say set the meet limits to 105 in the north, and the Brazos in the West, and Highway 36 east of the Brazos in the South.
>>
>>14270710
It's 70 miles north of downtown.

>>14271794
That's what you gotta do to have fun when land is flat all the roads follow property lines, with only a small amount of meth induced divergence like the random Zs
>>
>>14271318
I didn't like that idea at first, but all of us rolling down I10 together was pretty sweet.
>>
What do you guys think about switching leaders here and there next time? I know only Focus ST anon knew the Brookshire route, but it would be a cool way to see who drives the hardest/best.
>>
>>14272185
Seconded. Keep swapping leaders until everyone gets a turn to see how it flows.

>tfw I knew the route but didn't want to say anything because my whip was too slow
>>
>>14271318
If we meet in Huntsville, it'd only be a few miles from the start of the route, and in a much bigger parking lot.

Pretty terrible, did you even look at the street view of the roads you're suggesting?

Just because its curvy on a map doesn't mean its good.
>>
>>14275802
Actually the last bit on 105 is just to get back on 45 quickly since there's no roads near that point worth going on.

I made the route by stringing together recommended motorcycle roads from this map here: http://www.motorcycleroads.com/Routes/Texas_119.html
>>
>>14273781
I rike this.
>>
>>14281160
True but 2854 parralelles 105 and it's a two lane road through the woods that isn't filled with traffic.
>>
>>14281199
Yeah that's true, I thought it would be nice to cruise along the lake near the final leg though and I've never been there lol.
>>
>>14281224
I can tell, 105 on the lake is a six road full of traffic developed to hell and you see the lake literally for only 10 seconds driving
>>
>>14281326
Literally all you see of the lake driving east.
>>
>>14281338
That's it, nothing else.
>>
>>14281345
oh ok, i guess 2854 would be better then.

>>14281491
This reminds me. Should we begin trying to post lap and/or stage times? Establish course records? I definitely want to do it, but I'm unsure how.

Have three people, the runner, a follower (to ensure he abides by the route, if it includes intersections), and a timer?

Set up an automated device to record? Use a telemetry data collecting device? Accept unaltered speed dash cam footage as proof?

Creating our own leaderboards would be the shit.

>>14280475
Let me know if you're ever around late.
Also, I meant to get your number to ask for some help on an E30 repair. When are you usually around campus?

Protip: The detour off of 3090 you have us taking is unpaved.

I mean unless you guys are okay with unpaved roads, because these's this really neat route east of Navasota, but it's mostly graded dirt.

Well, I just finished the circuit in 2 hours and 57 minutes despite being slowed up by normies and road work at the end and only pushing the car at about 60-70% of what I'd be doing during an actual group run.

I'd wager that we could probably finish a group run in less than two and a half hours.

For you Tomball/Cypress guys.
There's one or two little circuits that can be made here that involve multiple 90 degree corners. The one northeast of the school is wide and slide-able, while the others on the left side of the map are tight and better for gripping. It's not a very big place, so it's easy to scope out beforehand and get a couple laps in. The risk lies in the fact that it's by a school and some houses, but if you go at the right time it's pretty dead.
The horizontal straight directly above the school is a known local drag spot (going east to west) if you feel so inclined.
