North Texas Ride & Camp May 11?

I was wondering if there would be any interest in a Ride & Camp on the weekend of May 11th.

The location is 90 miles west of Ft Worth, near Possum Kingdom Lake.

Meet up in Graham Sat morning @ 10 am. Ride all day then back to camp Sat night, then ride Sunday til quitting time.

Riding mostly Farm to Market roads, with very light dirt roads.

If there are a few guys that wanna meet up, let me know!

I have a big Goldwing hack......do you think I could get by with this on your camp and ride, I can fly the car if I need to, and have on occasion.

Sandsman, I bet we could work something out pretty easy. I'd like to take a close look at your hack set-up.

Charritto, I would have a bunch of questions about your Alaska trip.

I got a pretty good trip planned around here, we have some excellent roads around PK & to the west. I am a slow rider, like to go easy, lotsa deer to dodge (& stray cattle).

Keep up with this thread. If we can get a few more riders, well make some concrete plans.

Dirt won't hurt it, just can't get into the really rough stuff. I have been on some super curvy roads, such as the Highway 1, Pacific Coast Highway in upper Cali......and pulling a trailer, so the sidecar can get around a corner I say. I ride FM roads alot around here.

Mary's is definitely on the short list, if we are close by come lunch time.

I got a route that covers 3 forts & 5 lakes in mind.

Anybody else interested?

Ride & Camp

Ok, I've been figuring, it might be easiest to just meet up Sat morning, ride all day, camp Sat night, ride around til after lunch Sunday.

I was thinking about meeting up in the town of Palo Pinto. It's just west of Mineral Wells on Hwy 180. What time is the earliest we could meet? 9 or 10?

I've got everything needed to sleep at my deer camp, bunk beds, blankets etc.

I was thinking Sat lunch @ Ernie's Mexican Food in Breckenridge, Sat night supper @ Fox Hollow on Possum Kingdom Lake. I'll have breakfast ready Sunday morning @ camp, Sunday lunch @ Mary's in Strawn.

Of course this all depends on weather. If it's rainy or real cold, we will have to re-schedule.

I might be in for this. Sounds like fun. I'm a newbie with a month old DRZ-400.

I might ride out for the day. It is a nice ride up Hwy. 4 towards Palo Pinto. And I am pretty close to your area and know it well. Good idea.
