Coming in Labor Day weekend to pick up a new to me GSA. Just wondering if there are any fire/dirt/forest roads to get me sea legs on? Thanks!

Closest forest roads to DFW are in the SE Oklahoma/SW Arkansas area.

We've got gravel where I'm at (40 miles north of DFW) but it's mostly straight roads with a few corners thrown in.

JoMomma in DFW

Cody. Ghostrider1964 has moved Roll The Bones 4 to Laguna Park at the Lake Whitney dam so we are "investigating" the area every weekend till the Rally 10/25-27. I know the south and west sides of the lake pretty well but have until now ignored the east. Apparently the maintainers have, too. ;)

Veriest1 and Mudclod are gonna be out exploring Saturday leaving early from Blum. Send them a pm or post up on the Wanted: Centex thread. I will be out there somewhere trying to off myself on my KilLeR.

Hello everyone, looking to find people to do some dirt riding with. I relocated to DFW area from Columbus, Ohio last August. Went almost a year without riding and ended up dragging my dirt bike back to Ohio two weeks ago to get some riding in.

Currently have a 2008 KTM450 EXC-R that is tagged and ready to go on trails (can do short stints on pavement).

Yes! We need more trail riders! We'd like to be able to plan rides to CO, Big Bend as well.

I need assistance.

I have an '01 dodge 3500 5.9 diesel.

I am in need of a custom diesel mechanic to recommend and install aftermarket lift and injector pumps.

Can someone recommend one? I'm north of dfw by 60 miles. 20 miles south of the red river. I can pay mileage for someone to come up here, or attempt to get a tow.

In case you're curious, I'm 99% sure the vp44 pump has failed. (Injector pump, truck has 240k on it). I can hear the lift pump running and i have fuel at the release valve up front, but of course that doesn't guarantee it's enough pressure. I just want to replace both pieces of crap and not being from here, I don't need to get screwed over.

Thank you!!!!!

Had a call from a private # shortly after this post, but no voicemail. Text works too.
