Good Rides Near South Padre?

Any areas within KLR range of South Padre Island that you South Texas guys would recommend? I'm not looking for gnarly offroad stuff, maybe just some nice scenery and a decent lunch.

South Texas rides

Don't know about the South end of the island, I'm up near Corpus Christi. There are some good roads North of Rockport in and around the Aransas Wildlife Refuge - winter home of the Whooping Cranes. You might look farther West and Northwest of you around the Rio Grande Valley towards Falcon Lake.

Good Luck!

My friends and i tend to head north of Harlingen and ride the dirt roads there. There are plenty of them. Where are you at? Are you living here or just visiting?

I was just visiting; threw the KLR in the back of the pickup so I'd have something to ride while my wife was beachcombing. Really enjoyed the trip, even though it was unseasonably cool (still way better than at home.) We'll be back.
