Tour de Texas
Texas - the 28th state of the Union
When I was in Big Bend, I made a choice to see a part of Texas most riders overlook, Namely southeast Texas. This motorcycle trip would of been the same mileage to get from Big Bend to Moab, Utah and the Canyonlands of the Southwest.
1. Beaumont to El Paso: 742 miles
2. Beaumont to Chicago: 770 miles
3. El Paso is closer to California than to Dallas
Most riders don't realize there is a whole 'nuther part of Texas beside the Hill Country, Big Bend and the Rio Grande Valley. Southeast Texas is mainly overlooked, the small, sleepy towns in Texas that are both rich in history and beautiful architecture. But, southeast Texas and the Panhandle over the Canyonlands of the Southwest.
