Re: Weekly East Texas ramble of Thrill-Billy & Baja Explorer

Just a few ruts in the road and small creek, oh and one tree limb.
Youtube said they could take the shaky out of the vids, so trying it


Easy Water Crossing.


This is what stopped us.
Like Billy states 800 yards underwater.
Judging from the depth of the washouts we had already been making our way around, there could very easily be at least one that was two feet and just waiting to swallow our bikes.

Shades of "Deliverance". It would have been nice to have a buddy along if something untoward happened.

Re: Weekly East Texas ramble of Thrill-Billy & Baja Explorer

Well I just bumped into this thread while sipping coffee getting ready for work and now all I can think of is how stupid I am for missing a fun time like this. Nothing better than adventuring into the unknown, thanks for sharing!

Been a while since anyone posted in this thread, but I'm in Tyler if you guys are still doing these rides every so often.

I've never been off-road but just got a klr so going to give it a whirl. Not to far from Kilgore so maybe we can meet up and explore the backroads of smith and gregg county.

Re: Weekly East Texas ramble of Thrill-Billy & Baja Explorer

In Longview if you guys want to meet up for a ride. Perhaps we should start an ETX thread!

Re: Weekly East Texas ramble of Thrill-Billy & Baja Explorer

Not too many backroads that I know of in Smith or Gregg Co.

Rusk and Cherokee county is a different story though. Unfortunately I'm bikeless so you fellers have fun!

Re: Weekly East Texas ramble of Thrill-Billy & Baja Explorer

and my bike is broke.

Hi thrill-billy,
good to see u still come here.
Miss the rides we use to have.

On another note :
Never did get all the magnetic pieces out from case.
I still ride it, but not so far from home that i can't push it back.

Was thinking about getting it rebuilt and buying another one.
Give the rebuilt to my grandson and see if he would enjoy riding the BDRs and such.

Re: Weekly East Texas ramble of Thrill-Billy & Baja Explorer

Hey, there he is!!!

Keith, did I see you in Brownsboro about a month ago? I could've sworn it was you, with the huge acerbic tank.

What's wrong with the scooter?

More than likely it was me.

The bike, I had replaced the drain plug with one that had a magnet in it and that the little magnet came out of the oil plug, latched onto something in the gearing of transmission.
I'm still riding it a little. Just waiting for it to give up the ghost.
