Hello, I am new here but not new to Roadglides.
I remember seeing a Harley ad in a magazine back in the 90's and remarking that RG's were so damned ugly! A few years later I blew up the engine in my Roadking and needed a replacement bike fast. There sat a new 02 silver Roadglide so I took it for a test ride. I was instantly in love and I have owned 4 more since.
My newest RG is an 08 anniversary model and I also have done up an NRS Vrod in RG trim as well. I am currently considering a 15 or maybe newer Roadglide to add to the herd. Ride safe!

Wow, looks like there is a Roadglide gathering right here where I live in June. I plan to be at the ROT rally in Austin the weekend before but I will be back in Kerrville the following week. I work a lot so not sure about the daytime stuff but maybe I can take a day off or at least check it out one evening or something.
There are plenty of hotels in the area. Most of the places to stay are near I-10 and Hwy 16 on the north side. "Inn of the Hills" and the "Y.O. Ranch" are both good and have their own bars and restaurants. There is a pretty cool little bar called "Nautilus" located right next door to the "Best Western" and across from the "Super 8".
I could also let you know where not to go but I won't as per the forum rules. Yes, I read them.
There is LOTS of good riding around here, especially out towards Medina, Vanderpool, Leakey, etc. Be sure to ride the 3 sisters and stop for a beer in Leakey. Be warned that these are dangerous roads for novice riders and I don't recommend riding out there at night. Lots of curves and critters.
There are 3 independent bike shops in Kerrville and 1 in Ingram. I live just south of town out on Hwy 16 headed towards Medina. I also have a garage (at my house) and a hand operated tire machine should anyone have an emergency breakdown or flat.
