Day ride out of Austin?

Am planning to rent a motorcycle for a day ride out of the Austin area next Friday. Anyone have advice on a scenic Hill Country route that would include good BBQ and a fun music venue?

The Texas Hill Country extends from Austin to San Antonio in the east, and from Llano to Rocksprings in the west.

The Three Sisters Route is probably one of the most popular routes.

Cooper's BBQ in Llano gets mentioned frequently as one of the best BBQ joints in the Hill Country. I tried it once, but wasn't overly impressed.

Always check to see what's happening in Luckenbach. It's much easier to find than it was in the '70s, but still a pretty laid back place. If there's music, there's probably BBQ as well.

Three Sisters is a fun ride - just did part/most of that last week.
