....

on a warm summer night in the panhandle, if yer lucky, you can catch the hooker hornytoads playing the beaver dusters....

in baseball.

i'm in the village but from guymon originally. been riding dirt bikes for close to 40 years. pretty much have ridden every dirt road on either side of 74 to guthrie, cashion, okarche, navina, stillwater and points north and west of the metro. been over just about every box-iron bridge on the backroads of kingfisher county. i've taken dirt roads to canton, tulsa, etc. let me tell ya, there's some real gnarly dirt roads out there.

used to fish liberty lots. love that little lake, no wake, no dickheads. backside lake trails are fun at liberty and great there's some spots to moto camp. just about every small town municipal lake in oklahoma has some form of two-track trails around it. i used to just get on the drz and get lost, every weekend.

take knobbies. it's probably pretty sticky out there after the rains.

name is snoid. nice to meet ya.

This afternoon Draper Lake..

Hey Snoid ! What's up brother...

I'm fixing to get on the GS this afternoon and do the Draper Lake loop... With a little exploration of some of the dirt around the lake...

Maybe I'll get myself a trail permit now that I've got the GS back up to snuff...

But first I have to go to Edmond and pick up a pool.....O figure if I buy a pool then it won't get so friggin hot this summer..
Last summer was a no ridin' bitch...

If you see a Red R-100GS that'll be me...

John

I'll be there in the truck around Noon or so... I think Bill Dragoo is riding out there and entering his newly acquired classic enduro in the show.


Gerald at Performance Cycles put on a local dualsport ride last year... the Sooner Adventure ride. Mostly Dirt roads, some trails that wound up at Guy Coopers house, and then on to Seba station.

On the way back a few of us rode the river for a ways... theres some fun trails back in there if you know where to look.

Theres dirt trails near the shoreline around Draper... public access. not sure how far they go around.

Big bikes will be OK on the green trail and grass track trails in the off-road riding area at Draper. You better be in shape taking a big-bike on the other trails... They'll wear you out as they're a bit tight.


James Pratt occasionally organizes a dualsport hooligan ride called the Urban ASsault Ride around the city chasing GPS waypoints. Tons of Fun.

(FYI) James owns / Publishes Adventure Rider Magazine
His son is now the manager at the local Cycle Gear. Adam is great up there.

I passed by Seaba a couple of hours ago and it looked like quite a turnout.

Want to go riding this Saturday...

Hey all...

anyone want to go riding this Saturday... I'm game for what ever, inspired from riding around last weekend in the flint hills of Kansas... they have some cool roads in a rollin' hills prairie kind of way, and some neat old towns as well... surly we have the same around here, somewhere.... so if no one responds i'll head out by myself to see what is around binger in the way of dirt roads and blindly go exploring...

I'm willing to go anywhere and don't care about the heat...(you know we do live in Oklahoma) anyway...

Peter

over and out

City Boy Goes Boonie Cruising

Hey All

Since no wanted to go with me i headed out yesturday by myself. I choose to head South West of the City, starting somewhere south of Mustang... Traveled 180 miles and about 50 or 60 miles were paved.

Heading east i made my past and south of Minco then headed north of Binger... The area north of Binger was sand from hell... here is a link to the section i'm referring to... SANDY ROUTE

I made my way south down by Anadarko then meandered my way back to the city... Going to try and see if can figure out how to post some pics...

[IMG]IMG_0507[/IMG]
Traveled some roads like this...

[IMG]IMG_0508[/IMG]
And found some roads like this...

[IMG]IMG_0506[/IMG]
This road was all talk, or should i say all sign... anyway...

So after the washed out bridge... i couldn't get back on my route... the GPS was running me in circles, so i changed my setting to shortest distance, which can take you down some interesting roads... then headed down any dirt road that going the right direction...

[IMG]IMG_0520[/IMG]
Some of the best roads the GPS led me down turned out to be dead ends or fenced off...

[IMG]IMG_0521[/IMG]
This road came to a gate... the GPS said should it went all the way through to where i was wanting to go.... but i chickened out on going through the gate, i didn't want to get shot by a pissed off farmer... never know what they are farming...

[IMG]IMG_0519[/IMG]
I was about 3 or 4 miles outside of Gracemont fiddling with the GPS when this little old guy on a scooter pulls up next to me... We talked for about 15 minutes... he has about a 15 mile range that he knows off...and from the sound of it toddles around the country side quite a bit... an old motorcycle rider...

Dadayama, that looks like a fun time. Well, the bike nap-time maybe not as much....

That looks like it was a fun ride, even with the dirt nap. Most of my backroad puttering around has been county roads running southeast from Pauls Valley, zig-zagging along toward Roff and Tishimingo. I may have to take the XR out and see what you found.
