You do need a permit sticker, they are like 15 bucks and you can get that at a shop. there is a sticky for the sticker.

Also, keep in mind, most of the trails in sam houston are very sandy. Big heavy bikes need not apply!

Yes, new rule as of a couple years ago - even plated bikes need the sticker to be on the trail system,

If you have a Garmin GPS, here are the tracks:

OHV Stickers & The National Forests

If Honda of Houston on 290 doesn't have them, or know what they are, try the Yamaha dealer on 1960. Telll the first person you see what you want a sticker and they will point you to the office and two very lovely ladies.

Don't call the Honda dealer ahead of time for avaibility, it's not worth the trouble. I've called ahead twice in the past only to get dumb stares at the parts counter when I arrived. (It is close to a client's office, so was worth a second shot.)

Depending on your bike, a sticker may be a waste. Expect the trails to be sandy, tight and surrounded by trees. I ride them on my Cross Challenge but a 250 will be more at home than most bigger bikes.

ALL bikes and off road vech. need a sticker. If you get cought riding a MX bike on the park roads the rangers will throw the book at you. As others have stated the trails are single track. When dry they are mostly deep sand. When wet, tacky to bottomless ruts of mud. The trails are generaly closed when muddy. call this number to learn if trails are open:
936 344 6205 and hit 2 once
The best time to ride is after a dry spel followed by lite rain. Then the sand is like soft clay. There are plenty of dirt roads in that area to the north and NE.

Epic. It is an aprilia with a rotax 150, so I don't think you could ask for a stronger motor.

Hah, yeah, Honda of Houston told me they don't sell OHV stickers anymore. I got mine from Yamaha on 1960 as well.

Just found this thread ... I live in central Houston near Memorial Park and try to rider everyday.

Are there any Sport Touring riders on this thread? A little less than a month ago I purchased a BMW S1000rr. I'm working on building a route/itinerary that encompasses a West coast swing. I'd love to get feedback from others on things to consider while touring with a sportbike.

Going to the west coast I would drop down on 90 from San Antonio thru Big Bend catching I 10 at Van Horn. Detour to 191 in New Mexico / Arizona. West of LA ride the roads around Ojai.

This ride report will give you alot of good info.http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=808437
In particular, AIRBNB.com ( bed and breakfast website ) . I have been looking at this site and it look pretty cool. For example there is a cabin curser boat tied up in Galveston that you can rent as a room.
