Absolutely! Go west! Wimberly, Fredricksburg, Luckenbach, llano, just pick a few and stay on the FM roads. One of particular fame is the devil's backbone - Devil

I never did it on a motorcycle but the drive around Lake Travis is amazing if you're ever in the area.

Have you been on Lime Creek? It runs between Volente and Anderson Mill which ultimately crosses into 1431. 1431 is fun too (not as much as it used to be a couple of decades ago
There are a number of interesting roads going towards 29.
If you want to venture further, go in the direction of Bandera, Utopia, Garner State Park, etc.
Devils Backbone which is also the hill country area around Wimberly is a must!

If you want a STREET ride, go to Willow Loop and Lukenbach Tx. Awesome, esp in the late spring when the bluebonnets are in bloom.

If you want dirtbike riding, try Boulder Creek, it's an off road park near Marble Falls.

There should be a little book available at most shops in Texas called "Ride Texas" that will have routes for most regions.
