Re: Places to ride in Houston- Lake Jackson area

There is no good riding within several hundred miles of Houston , east Texas dirt roads , a few dirt roads in the hill country and some gravel roads in surrounding county's . You can get your bike dirty on them but I don't consider them good . Same for the national forest , 30 years ago there were some kick *** trails . Not now , they are all political correct and all multi use trails that the forest service has to approve of . My riding is mostly in far off places with interesting things to see . The bikes stay parked mostly around home anymore . I suppose I'll have to pack up and come home in a week or so , I've been enjoying cool weather miles and miles of trails and mountains for the last three weeks . northwest Colorado and Arkansas are my playgrounds . I do mix in some Big Bend a few times a year I've ridden all of it but a lot of its good the second time around too .

Re: Places to ride in Houston- Lake Jackson area

Hey Goyko I'm working on the details for a friendly little test of your 690 vs. a 250 or 300 2stroke.

Hopefully we can do this in a place where you would enjoy riding no matter what, to make it worth your while. Let me know if you're interested. I'm not envisioning a race per se, just a friendly comparison of the different bike's strengths.

This all reminds me of David Knight in a way, where he couldn't get on with a 300 and went to a 500 4stroke to dominate the US hare scrambles...

If you wanna make fun, then go ahead.
You're all welcome to come to barnwell with my crew anytime you want, and ride with us. I ride there most of the time simply because I find it the most challenging within reasonable driving distance from me. Red river is nice, hidden falls is little easier that red river. Those trails in Arkansas are also pretty nice, white rock or something like that, I forgot the name. So please, please, anybody feel free to join us, and please bring as much cameras as you want.
I'm not one of those guys that go to Starbucks on the weekend in full klim gear, hit some dirt on the driveway and call it an adventure. Been riding bikes since I was 5. Started racing at 8.
I'm not by any means saying that I'm better than anyone in here nor I was trying to offend anyone. I just said that Sam is by my opinion one of the easinest flattest places to ride in all of Texas.
I've ridden erzberg multiple times, organized the biggest hard enduro race in Serbia with my father... just to name a few, so I can walk to walk.
As I said, I'll be happy to ride with any of you.
No need to condisend on me, or try making fun, I was not trying to offend anyone, just gave my opinion on the trail.
come ride the loops in San Antonio. a survey a few years back found that at any time day or night 50% of drivers were DUI the other 50% were on a phone.
