The good news is the speed limit is like 80 in some places so you will have a harder time getting a ticket.  Go hang out under the bridge like a homeless person and watch the bats.  Take hippie repellent.

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Sounds like he needs a guide, you should go. Heck it's less than 500 miles, a nice spring ride to re-break-in the VFR.
If it weren't for the therapeutic properties of the occasional off-camber decreasing radius downhill right-hander I'd almost certainly go completely sane.

Don’t really need anything. Figured it’d be nice to catch a beer with someone while in the hood. Tagging along with the wife on a thing.

Region 2. Biggest and most barrenest.

 :facepalm:

Gingerman, Bitter End, Celis Brewing and Draught House are the oldest. Stay away from 4th to 8th Streets bracketed by Red River to Lamar and the Drag. It's appalling the number of degenerates per square foot. There is also no bbq or Mexican food in Austin.

FWIW, during 3 visits to Austin for MotoGP, I enjoyed the area 'Scrubber sez avoid. Guess I'm a degenerate!  :chili:

Had a few adult beverages, did a bunch of walking around, saw punk, metal, rock, jazz, and country bands.
