That was about all I saw as well. I drooled all over the 990's from a distance. Looked like they were both brand new. Wanted to talk to the owners, but I was trying to hunt down the person who's air filter fell off on the ride over. I stopped and picked it up, but never could find the bike it went too. Saw another KLR that was nicely decked out. Mine's just pure stock right now, but not for long :)

I spoke with the guy on the KLR, I was parked next to him. He was gearing up for a trip to Moab if I remember correctly. I didn't get to talk with the owners of the KTM's but gave them a thumbs up as they rode by...

CrossBar Ranch

Has anybody been to ride around Davis, OK. Any good routes or trails? I was looking at the Crossbar Ranch riding area. I have some new riders going with on this little trip and don't want anything like K-Trail type stuff.

Thanks

K-trail is better than interstate compared to most of the Crossbar Ranch trails.

Go over to the Lake Murray ridding area, should be better for new riders.

IDK, I have never been to crossbar, but I think part of my mirror and some of my plastic, as well as some pride, was left on parts of the ktrail. Sections were easy, other parts ouch.

The eastern sections of K are pretty easy. The west, not so much. It's all relative to the type of bike though. We were on loaded 650s, one KLR and one DR. There are sections getting from Clayton Trail to K that were damn rocky.

Crossbar, in comparison, isn't that bad. At least on the Blue Trail. The Red is a lot more rocky.

I'd also recommend Lake Murray. There are some tricky spots if you choose them, but overall pretty easy. Again, all depends on the bike/rider.

Don't know if I'd take a "new" rider to the crossbar.
One of my recent rides down there cost my insurance co. in excess
of $40,000. Some of the trails there make the K trail same tame by comparison. There are some easy trails at the crossbar, but you can find yourself on a technical section before you know it. I'm not saying not to go, I like riding there, Just be careful.
have fun. My crash report below will explain the details.

someone also mentioned Lake Murray. That is a good place for new riders.
Nice campgrounds with full hookups. You have to buy a daily wristband to ride. Only downside is there is no direction to the trails (runs both directions) so you gotta watch for oncoming traffic and crazy Kwad riders.

There are lots of fire roads around that area...decent to poorly maintained gravel roads. Some of it is leased, and gated, but several miles of exploring to be had.

Here's a start for info on the area:

And here's a small sample of K-Trail, in the rain:

I rode crossbar ranch on a ktm 250sx and was glad I was not on a 450. Anything bigger than a 450 would be a nightmare there. VERY technical, VERY rocky. I wound say if you're not an intermediate to expert you will not have good day there. Rocks and rocks and steep hills and rocks and rocks and 3ft deep rocky creek crossings and rocks and rocks and rocks. I'm not one to fall down very often but I fell several times in a day and a couple times in deep water.

Yeah Murray is good for all skill levels, I'd start there. I have not ridden K-trail, from the looks of it in pictures it appears pretty mellow compared to crossbar as well.

What he said ^^^^^^


I have ridden both and the K-Trail is a walk in the park compared to most of the stuff at Cross Bar. With a good bike and a somewhat experienced rider Cross Bar is a fun day of course, I just wouldn't take a beginning rider there.
