Howdy

Good to see some active North Texas riders. I'm located in North Ft Worth. Approximately I-35W and Heritage Trace Parkway. I work a lot of weekends, at least for now. Interviewing for a M-F gig, just hasn't happened yet. Hopefully soon, I'd like to meet up with you guys and ride.

This weekend

Kool stuff Zugg, we do IT work so no luck there. I will keep my ears open.

I went out alone yesterday to Red River.
Rode from 1-4pm with light showers then 100 miles home in the rain.
I was dry due to all my gear, and cold but nothing too bad. (Sidi Adventure Rain Boots, Gortex Jacket USAF issue)

The funnest part was also the worst part. I went were most wouldn't go and then on the way down did a down hill that would have killed a lesser man. :) It shattered my front fender when I hit the large rock on the ground, but I kept moving forward.
3 riders on KTM dirt bikes were clapping, and cheering. The one on the 150 said "that was Valiant"! I think that might be the word for my film / photography company when I start.

I will go on a short ride today to an illegal area near by and take some gopro shots. (no front fender)

Welcome! Nice bike. (that's is a big bike like my KLR650) I realize your bike has more clearance and HP. So GG on that choice. What type of riding are you wanting to do and what is your experience level?

Well i consider myself pretty experienced, been riding my Dads 99 KLR, and had a GSXR sportbike. Before i got my street legs i was riding dirt on a YZ250 and a CRF230F. I am basically wanting to ride there, play and ride home. I dont own a pickup haha.

Ive had motorcross bikes before so off-road riding is not new to me, and i aint scared!

What type of riding do you guys mostly do?

Chris

My favorite spots are rocky hill climbs and technical crawls trying not to dab.

This is pretty good overview of what we do at RRMT by EnderTheX - we go pretty much everywhere:

Droo, I love that video Oliver did. Those guys have some talent.

Cjsgptx, That is what I wanted to hear, as far as, riding there and back on the motorbike. I live in Irving, and go 2nd, 4th, weekends. Usually no matter what. So 23rd and/or 24th Will be going.
