Where is the road with the river on one side and cliffs on the other? Is that the Illinois River?

Yep, just after we crossed that bridge you're not supposed to jump off of anymore.

I wish I could have ridden along, but we already had plans to be out of town for the weekend (daughter turned 8 on Father's Day).

Lots of familiar sites! And I agree that there are so many random things to see in rural Oklahoma that it's not even practical to stop for pictures at all of them!

Thanks for the RR!

Do you happen to have a map of your actual ride and what parts you did each day and where you stayed?

Y'all have done a great job of assembling this route!

If a guy had a day and a half and started from North OKC (basically the middle of the loop), what 300 miles would you recommend knocking out first? (Will be traveling alone on a GS.)

And again... Thanks for all the work on this!

What a way to spend Fathers Day! I'm glad I finally got a weekend off and didn't miss this ride. Most of the OAT that we rode I really enjoyed. My favorite section was the SE section out of Heavner. All I can say is Wow, what a ride. Wish we could have done more of the trail but we ran out of time, not to mention my bad luck with the new set of Conti's. I had a rear flat on the section on the East side of Broken Bow Lake. Had two holes in the rear tire. Dadayama worked his plug repair magic on it and we were back on our way. He has strong plug Kung fu because they held all the way back to the city, at highway speeds. I also have to mention the dirt nap my bike had to take after a low speed, small water crossing. A small slide out, finished with a highside. Maybe got back into the gas to soon? Must have, my Ktm has a cheese grader look to it in some areas.
Some of the roads we rode in the SE section were very rough. My hats off to all the hard core riders who rode that section. Bob_pet did an amazing job of riding his Yamaha Super Tenere through it without a problem. The man has some skill!
Other roads were good to near perfect, like the one that gave me a flat. Wish we had a film crew to document the whole OAT. We did get a few pics. We missed all the big rain storms and had good food on the ride.
I would like to go back and ride the SE section again, I really enjoyed it. Even the insanely rough road, other people probably would Not agree.
It was good to meet some new riders and hopefully we will get together soon for another good ride.

Yes, i believe so, I am also sure there was a similar road that we went down, and I can't remember the name of the river i think it started with a K...

The Illinois river was a hoot because there were lots of you folks going down it in canoes,

The other river which was very similar was quieter and we saw folks fishing in tubes... both were beautiful...

We started out at Lake McMurtry... first night some stayed at Snow Dale State Park By Salina, others cut off earlier and camped at Lake Oologah, Saturday night some stayed at Wister Lake others at Heavner, which are close by each other.

Not sure what you mean by actual map... we went off of the GPX on the first page of the "Making of the Oklahoma Adventure Trail"

I have some google maps of the route if want them... pm me...

Great ride, gentlemen! Thoroughly enjoyed the adventure and the company. It was better than I expected in all respects. Looking forward to exploring more of the OAT - and I'm game for any part of it.

Thought I'd post this pic of what I ride after my ride is done for the day. It seemed to be a popular topic of conversation. Ordered yours yet?

Cheers!

I would do any section of it alone except the portion that is around Highway one. It is the part that zig zags above and below the Talimena Scenic Drive of highway one, and it is the part that everyone is talking about being challenging and such...
