Big Bend sounds great, once you get there ! (After 300 miles of Texas highways ?)
No, I've not found any good, scenic roads around Houston. I use the Bonny mostly for occasional rides to work on nice days (only 3 miles from home to downtown), and weekend chores that don't require carrying capacity. The furthest she's been is down to Galveston, for the Lone Star Rally.
I'm leaving Wednesday on Christmas vacation until early Jan. Maybe in the New Year you can let me know when you're going on a weekend ride in the NW areas.
