Look up the Oklahoma Cross Country Racing Association, OCCRA. Should give you some leads. I was stationed at Sill twice, thought we were retiring there until the Army moved me just short of being able to drop my retirement. Still have a house there and might make it back one day...

Thanks for the info. I will look into it all. And I am from Texas so I shouldn't stand out too bad.

I just thought of another place that somebody already mentioned. It is the Cross Timbers Riding Area at Draper Lake in Oklahoma City. Search for that or the Oklahoma Dirt Riders for more info.

Thanks for the info. Ok dirt riders admin never allowed me access. I think it might be an inactive forum now.

off road schools

Does anyone know any off road training schools that arent in another state. I can't find any on google. I was supposed to take on here but my kid got sick, and I ended up being a no show, and lost the money, they wouldn't even put me on a different date even though there were open slots. Well as my time to move gets closer, I am looking for one for me and my daughter to attend. It is a requirement for me because I am in the Army, and the standard street course apparently is not enough because I don't ride a standard street bike.

Any input would be helpful. I don't have a MX bike, so MX school won't work. Just your standard trail/Dualsport school for advanced riders and beginners would be perfect.

Thanks in advance

Dave you wanna rent that house out? I just arrived and I am in the market immediately.

Hopefully I will have my bike soon and be able to go riding.

I knew I should have put the bikes in the truck. The movers jacked up the DR. Looks like they dropped it off the back of the truck, and they pulled the fuel hoses on both, even though I was specifically told I didn't need to drain them.

The DRZ is leaking from the bottom of the carb. Looks like someone was jacking around with more than the fuel hose on that one. This weekend instead of riding, I will be pulling them both apart, and fixing them up hopefully.

On that note, who's up for some dual sport riding assuming I get the DR up by next weekend?

There used to be a place on Ft. Sill itself, on the section of the post east of I-44 along the south boundry road, where I would often see dirtbikers tearing it up on some trails. No idea if it's still there or not.

Might be worth a look see.

I have heard that, however that is the first thing I did when I arrived was go look. How long ago were you seeing this? I don't sign in to my unit till next week, so I don't have anyone to ask yet.

OH, and if anyone has a spare TM28 or TM33 pumper carbs laying around, I am in the market. The movers damaged the bowl on my BSR32 thus pushing up my timeline to buy a new carb. I was planning on it once I got settled in anyway, but now I have to sooner rather than later, so I can ride. The fuel drain screw was over tightened by the movers apparently and from my understanding, you can not just buy a new bowl.

It was back in the late 80's. I looked at the post the other day on Google maps, and saw what looks to be a large dirt area about where I recall it being...I think it was called the "Pig Farm" or something like that. It's on the south boundry road as you head out to the east range...or was, anyhow.

No riding at the "Pig Farm", stopped many years ago, in fact no dirt riding on Ft Sill anywhere these days. Cross Timbers (Lake Stanley Draper) OKC or Red River, north of St Jo, Tex are the closest to Lawton.
