Default Is Brady generally safe?

Not Tom.

Iím looking at staying in Brady on Friday night. Seems like a good place to crash out after a long day on the bike. Iíll be pulling into town pretty road weary, and I need a safe place to park the bike overnight. Parking doesnít look too protected for the hotel, so do you think the bike would be ok overnight?

Go by the Walmart when you get there. Look at the clientele. Then keep riding to the next town.

Been to Brady a couple times. A buddy has a place there. It seems a lot safer than houston, where I’m sure you spend some time considering where you’re from.

Lol. Brady is regular ol small town Texas. I see some meth head l ooling folks working at Dollar General and Stripes in Llano but crime isn't bad. I seriously doubt vehicles are stoken from motel parking lots in either town.

We hunt on a place just south of town a few times a year, ranch manager and wife are from there, parents still live there. He says it is a dump, lots of drugs and idiots. Just what I have heard!

Definitely some interesting responses but I appreciate it! I think I’ll stay there. There’s a small hotel that looks like the exact type of place a trip like mine should include. The bike has a wheel lock and an alarm, and it looks like DPS pretty close by. Brady will be a good jumping off point for the next day, so fingers crossed the forecast holds up.

Lock it up, and you'll most likely be fine. Not saying Brady doesn't have it's share of trash, but so does any town. Some of you guys are too used to your gated communities I guess

Brady is fine. Been going there most of my life. Holiday Inn and Best Western are the nicest hotels in town. My hunters usually stay at one of those and have never had an issue. I would not associate Brady with high crime at all. One of my favorite places.

But that is not true. Brownwood has a horrible crime rate versus national avg. 53% higher than national avg. Brady is 60% below national avg. Which is better? In case Brownwood's education system lines up with its crime rate I'll help you. Brady is better.

It' been a while for me but we spent 13 years hunting outside of Rochelle and spent some time in Brady. I would say you would be just fine. I had to laugh one day at the feed store I happened to glance at the newspaper. The Sheriff at the time was Jess Howell. What was funny was where I am from, Wharton, the Sheriff was also Jess Howell. Our Sheriff had been complaining about jail overcrowding to our commissioners. The paper at the Brady Feed Store had an article where the McCullough County Sheriff was griping about the same thing. The difference Wharton County had a 145 bed jail and was over crowded by 50 or more. McCullough had a 15 bed jail and was over crowded by 5. Perspective I guess.

OP has a scooter which can be picked up easily by a four man crew- walked on to a trailer and gone in less than 30 seconds! Wheel locks don’t work against that or alarms! If you can get it into your room you’ll sleep better if the fumes don’t get you! I quit worrying about it and enjoyed my journey. Safe travels OP

No drama but truth! Like I stated, if a person is going to tour around on a scooter then at some point you have to quit worrying because it will take the enjoyment out of the journey.
