I'm always on the 950 when I'm there but I think I may have to take the 400 ECX and go exploring.
Where is WW and T, might have to check that out

Go west out of Perryville on "T". About 4 miles before you reach route "OO", where T, tees into OO, you will find Bidwell Creek Road.

Or maybe said a better way, go south out of Farmington on OO. At the intersection of OO and T, go east about four miles.

T and WW are two of my favorite sport bike roads. Anyway I need to ride to Bixby Wed. 9AM to meet with Doe Run people, about a dirt bike route. I’ll check Bidwell Creek Road out on the way home. We could meet for lunch lfs, but I don't know when I’ll be done at the mine.

There are a couple water crossings on the north/east end of Bidwell Creek Road that are always interesting on a big dual sport. The one on bidwell proper is potholed, slim covered, bedrock limestone. The one on the spur going north to Boyd Road is riding the creekbed for fifty yards of limestone ledges. It is much easier to ride it going north which is downstream.

All along Bidwell, especially where you cross The Castor River headwaters there are quadtard trails eveyrwhere. I would assume some of them link up for some good covert dirt riding.

I APPRECIATE the invitation a BUNCH. And the invitation to the SBR. Politics on that one. I'll explain when we get together.

My ROMEO group (Retired Old Men Eating Out) has a tentative date for lunch on Wednesday. it was set last week. However, I have not heard from the other ROMEOs so I do not know for sure. If I can find a way to get out of it, I would sure love to ride a bit and lunch a bit with you.

THANKS again for the invitations. If things change, I'll let you know.

Kanur.......THANKS for the information. I'll take some of my group up there to check it out.

Huge news!!
I changed my user name.. Ha, big deal..

I got tired of explaining the "cruiser" thing.. I haven't owned one since 07.. (got rid of my VTX 1800, out of gas at 100 miles!)
Once I discovered the joys of getting off of the asphault.. Someone can re-name "Wildwood Creek"
( Didn't someone else drown a bike in there this yr? ).

Took PT and Campbell up there yesterday. LOTS of off side trails. You'll have to ask PT or Campbell bout them. I rode the gravel roads. Lots of water crossings on north end. What's the little subdivision up there?

I'll have to hunt them up for a trip report. I think that is a hunting/fishing club on the east end. I have no idea what the compound of modular homes on the west end is.

Hey Tim-----thanks so much Tim------I stared at that picture above and couldn't for the life of me figure out where it was taken and who those girls were------so I thought and thought--------thought I'd better come up with an answer before my wife asked me

Finally remembered that was in Mexico as we were having breakfast in a little cafe at a motel.
See-----I ain't got all-timers yet
Funny part was when we were trying to order and you had that translation book-------man that was some fun stuff.
