My Cruise on TX130

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to cruise on Texas Highway 130. I got on just east of Seguin and cruised to just north of Georgetown. The trip did not take long.

Cruisin’ TX 130

This stretch of highway has a posted speed limit of 85 miles per hour, so the eighty mile trip takes less than an hour. The southern part had few cars, but the closer I got to Austin, the busier it was.

I did shoot video through the windshield, but it was not usable. Sorry, but that gives me an excuse to make another trip on this piece of road

New shoes for Inara

New Pirelli P4 tires installed at Discount Tire

The Michelin HydroEdge tires have survived the road for about 100,000 miles so it is time for a change. Since the HydroEdge tire is discontinued (replaced is probably more accurate), I decided to return to the P4s from Pirelli.

The price is better than the replacement Michelin and I don’t live on the road like I once did.

If you have followed this website for any time, you know I first ran the Pirelli P4s, then when I had to replace them, I had the Michelin HydroEdge tires installed. I wrote several reviews about each tire and I would recommend both tires.

Inara Mileage thi morning

Here is a picture of the odometer a few miles after the tire installation. Inara is about to turn 218,000 miles old, which she did a few hours after this shot was taken.

Inara has a big smile on her face. She likes her new shoes..
