got one more good ride in before I head back to class (today). A good friend (Andy - TLR1000) and I rode out to the Buchanan Dam about 45 mins from Austin. We tried to go out on the dam (I'd been out there before and it's kinda un-nerving) but it's been closed due to 9/11? Fucking gay. Anyway, here are a few pics from the ride. The lake is filled to capacity, hence the water being so close to the top of the spill-way.

Looks like a turtle and two manatees (sp)
That's what I was thinking...I know I've got Manatees in packs over here in Florida, so Texas wouldn't be a far stretch for them to go?? :confused:

Manatees are pretty large animals. I just thought those were two fish and a turtle.

You would be correct sir, just two fish and a turtle, although there were a handful of other fish and more turtles at that spot. Seems they are people-fed, when we were leaning over the railing they came over and started begging almost :) Not sure what kind of fish they were but a couple of them were almost 2ft long!

Nice pics. Damn, those TL's are some huuuge bikes. That guy seems pretty big and that bike dwarfs him.

On another note, what kind of shirt are you wearing? Looks like it has padding, but not much abrasion resistance. Just curious.

Sounds like a fun trip. Glad you enjoyed yourself :)

Yeah his TL is quite the beast... especially compared to my R6!

The jacket is actually pretty nice, it's a Vanson Ventilator (Vanson's mesh jacket, and you know Vanson makes some good stuff...)

The fish are probably carp. I grew up in TX and there is lots of them in TX. At Joe Pool lake there is a marina where you can go feed the carp with bread and stuff.

They're pretty much considered a trash fish though. No one eats them, or fishes for them or anything. Sometimes they get big enough you can go bow fishing for them. :)
