Not me. I don't run. I just don't hear real good. Or look behind me.

You are smack dab in the area I plan to start working next for possible RTB routes We need to get together

Cleatus...you think the fog was bad on the dam....should have been on the water...50 foot visibility is a bit scary...had to nav by GPS only! It was a surreal experience

It all looks the same.

You end up "toenailed" either way.

Yeah, It got thick around here.. better than a dust cloud though. What's with the "dirt floor engineer" ? I've worked construction a long time, dealt with all sorts of engineers but not that.. If you're in the area and need a hand, call me @ 254-694-4217.. Goes for the rest ya..

I'm going to re ride Mud's route, and try Ghost's route soon. I'll make it a weekend, Hamilton Inn did me right, and I still have my wad There's some good stuff in hill county too..

Mike, I am also a contractor and bid jobs for ACE Lake Whitney. I was removing and replacing bouys around the lake. Not any fun grabbing those heavy slimy bouys and get them in the boat

Do you know the best dirt roads around your area? I'd like to go run some tasty dirt and see if I can use it for my Red to the Rio project. One leg is coming through Bosque County and I'm thinking Brownwood for the other.


I wish I could have come to the Roll the Bones but I was entered in The Texas Mile to race my R1. I am hoping to get to ride the DRZ 400 a little more. I am just starting my search so I don't have any good dirt to report so far. I will get some more answers before long.
I will post up what I find and maybe we can go for a ride when you head through Bwd.???

That is awesome!!!! We should all get together and ride.
I work 7 days on/ 7 off (night manager of a pharmacy) so if you need me to do some local recon I can scout some things out - see if I can help pull things together.
I am just now getting out on my DRZ 400 but I am really enjoying it. I plan on looking around for some good dirt roads this next week. I will post up if I find anything worth reporting.

Yes. We do. Please run every beautiful, twisty, topo-filled dirt road in your area. And then take me on them (edit: first. Before ghost. So I can find the preferable lines. )
