San Antonio is a wonderful city.....culturally diverse, and interesting. The arts are well represented, the restaurants are first class, the housing plentiful and less expensive than most places. I have had good experiences at Alamo BMW, but my service is also done at RhineWest, and I wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone. The Hill Country is just a few minutes away, and it is a marvelous place to ride and tour. Eight hours to the West is Fort Davis and just South of that (you will pass Voni on the way, BTW) is Big Bend National and State Parks.....well worth the interesting ride down Highway 90 from San Antonio. There is much history, and many interesting things to do: for instance, two years ago my wife and I rode the approximate route of Davy Crockett (in reverse) when he came from Tennessee to San Antonio. I love San Antonio, home of the four-time NBA Champion Spurs! PM me if your are interested in knowing more.
