DFW TARA BS Thread

My thoughts with this thread are to have a common place to ask questions, makes suggestions or just BS a little. I will be posting as things come up or I have ideas. I'll be subscribed to this thread but won't be posting everyday or be controlling the thread. It is for the DFW folks to have a common place to communicate. The more active the thread is the more I will be around.

I am still waiting for feedback before scheduling the first DFW TARA M&G. To be honest I haven't received as much feedback or as many suggestions as I had hoped for either the M&G or local rides,

The only common theme so far is that DFW is too big geographically to have one central M&G. Since I live in Fort Worth the first M&G when scheduled will be on the West side of DFW.

Most of my personal riding for this year was pretty much planned prior to talking to Richard so I thought I would throw out what my Adventure riding plans are for 2017:

4/7 thru 4/9 Sup-A-Ten Versys Strom-A-Thon

http://www.twtex.com/forums/showthread.php?t=112625

4/20 thru 4/23 Hillbilly DS Ride

http://advrider.com/index.php?thread...21-23.1196479/

5/6 thru 5/7 Redneck Ramble

Dates and details still tentative

5/19 thru 5/22 SLAP

http://advrider.com/index.php?thread...19-21.1196851/


6/6 thru 6/18 Great Divide Ride

http://www.twtex.com/forums/showthread.php?t=110347


9/15 thru 9/17 East Texas 450

Tentative right now

10/13 thru 10/15 Roll the Bones


Dates and details still tentative


10/26 thru 10/30 Mextek #6

I may actually go a few days early.

12/XX Dual Sport Toys for Tots ride.

(provided there is one this year)

Re: DFW TARA BS Thread

Seeing that schedule makes me realize how much more I need to be participating in the group rides... My only commit so far is the Great Divide Ride!

A meet and greet I don't have to drive three hours to get to is a meet and greet I can make!

I think that is a great suggestion. I have ridden up there but don't really have a planned loop of any kind. Let me see what I can dig up.

Looks like I'm missing another trip up there... Will be down in Gun Barrel City helping out my dad for the weekend. Can you post a Meers report? My last trip there I waited about two hours for a dried out burger and burned cobbler. Hoping it was just a bad day.

i have found the only way to visit Meers for a burger is if you get there when they open 10:30 and have an early lunch.
