I read about the new speed limit on that road. What is it, about a 40 mile stretch of 80mph? I'm curious to know what sort of average speed you observed of traffic in the right lane?

It's about a 45 mile stretch from near Buda, TX to Georgetown that closely parallels I-35 from the east. I only rode it from 290 in Austin to its north end near Georgetown.

Most of the traffic I rode with ran right at 80; a few above. I noticed several cages cruising about 70 though.

I-35 and I-45 from between Dallas and Houston and Dallas and Austin both have long stretches of 75MPH speed limits. Still, most cages max out around 70.

I came through TX on the 20 and then the 10 on my way to Cali from VA. Awesome shit. Cruise on my SUV set on 80 with two bikes inside an enclosed trailer

Is that sign upside down?

Those who depart SW III on the 15 going north will see 80 mph speed limits too. West is best!

What if the Hokey-Pokey really is what it's all about?

Out in the western part of the state we have 80mph limits on I-10 and I-20. We also have 75mph on single lane country roads as well.

This 85 mph stretch is between Austin and San Antonio. You know, because people in those cities need to go between them REAL FAST!
