Hi, we live in MN and stopping off in Louisiana then thought we would head to Texas for March and part of April. We are avid motorcycle riders and looking for some good roads to ride as well as a couple of recommendations for a long term camp, month or more). We have a 40' 5th wheel Toy Hauler. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Texas Hill Country. The best riding in west of Austin, north of San Antonio.
Rt16. Three Sisters.

Three Sisters may be the best motorcycle ride in the country.

Here is a website to see good rides in all states:

Very good suggestions above. Just be sure to extend your "part of April" to include the blooming of the Bluebonnets.

FM335 and FM336, part of the Three Sisters, also known as the Twisted Sisters, is the best Texas has to offer. This rides best for me taking 336 north from Leakey and then take 335 south. Very scenic.

FM1431 from Cedar Park and Marble Falls is another great ride. I like riding this from east to west. It starts out wide, lame and congested and builds up to hilly and twisty. This is my go-to stretch when I need my fix.

The Devil's Backbone is a stretch of FM32 between San Marcos and Blanco. This is a popular scenic road with sections built on top of a long ridge, making nice views on both sides. This is tame compared to the above but a nice ride.

There are numerous stretches worthy of motorcycle exploration in Texas. You just need to explore to find them. There is a nice short stretch between New Ulm and Fayetteville for example.

Enjoy and Play Safe

Underappreciated is Big Bend National Park in West Texas. There are about 150 miles of paved roads within the park. Lots of elevation changes. Lots of curves, including switchbacks. Mountain roads, desert roads and Rio Grande River access points. Plenty of pulloffs. Just avoid Easter week. That's their peak camping event requiring use of overflow areas. Before Easter you'll probably catch the lupins blooming (2' tall bluebonnets).

Texas Hill Country. But then again, I'm biased.

I actually live off 1431 between CP & MF, and it does indeed get really nice in the spring with the bluebonnets blooming!! Lots of riders on that road.

Also, Willow City Loop is very nice. Beautiful ride!!
It's north of Fredericksburg, and close to Enchanted Rock, so you should check it out too!!
