South of DFW Run - April 22, 2017 - UPDATED GPX AND MAP

So the ride for the DFW North Guys..plus anyone else who wants to join - obviously... is on Saturday April 22nd. Bike up at 8am.
The current meeting place will be the Sonic on FM66 and I35. Here is the link.
https://www.google.com/maps/place/So...!4d-96.8650402

There is a WalMart nearby if you want to trailer your bike down and leave the trailer and truck in the parking lot. They seem to be ok with campers, Rv's etc..

The GPX File is attached to this post.

The ride will have some pavement time as well as off road time. The objective is to hit the 3 water crossings down in BOSQUE County.
I have cut my ride down from 250 to 209 miles. Since this will have some intentional pavement and the route is more direct..well kinda.. I decided to keep the distance the same. This will be an all day ride. Enduros are welcome as the speed should not get above 60...No highways.
I did a 226 mile trip this year and the timing was good... 8am to 5pm.

Looking at some videos in Bosque County, it would appear there are hills involved..so a slight change from the northern routes.
Please LET ME KNOW if you are going. I would like to get a good head count on what to expect. In the event of bad weather, we can expect to go the next day.

Check it out and let me know. The files are the new GPX File and the New PDF Maps..UPDATED FILES AS OF APRIL 10, 2017

I couldn't get it together last week but I'll be hoping to join up on this one. I'll be running my Dr650 so Dirt, street and water crossings are welcome.

Re: South of DFW Run - April 22, 2017

But Ofcourse, all bikes are welcome..

I am going to do these type of rides for a while...then switch maybe late fall or next spring to Exploring all of the North Texas counties..... There are some good places here in North Texas...we just have to find them and document what we find.

By the way. The GPX file is not final yet. I am still fine tuning it.. if you know of something along the route let me know and we can work it in to keep things interesting!

Chris

If you hit fm 876 near the starting point, you can pick up, Bell Branch rd, Bee Creek rd, cut over on fm 308 for about 2 miles and pick up Dovie, you would get some nice gravel right out of the starting gate.

Re: South of DFW Run - April 22, 2017

After looking at tomorrows weather, I think I'll do a ride if anyone is up for it. Gravel and twisties is what i generally look for.

Just traded f800gs for a 690 enduro r today. So the more dirt and water- the better.

Re: South of DFW Run - April 22, 2017

This right here is exactly why i got the DR. I've been wanting to kick up some dust and find some trail roads. Not exactly wanting to go full tilt into Knobby tire land but I figure if the terrain mandates it I'm willing. I just have always been a little worried about venturing out on my own. You know how it is, unfamiliar territory, questionable areas and angry drivers... I wouldn't mind a small group of guys that'll help me up my riding game and get more acclimated to offroad environments around the North half of Texas and also to get my riding endurance up too. I'm going to try and make this when life and weather doesn't interfere. Just the past month has been terrible for trying to get together. I've been working down in Houston during the week (yuck) and by the time I get home Friday evening and rest some all I can do on Saturday is get ready to head back on Sunday, lol.

Re: South of DFW Run - April 22, 2017

WELL COME ON!

We had fun on the last ride... I think it will be the same this time as well..
From the video I have seen the southern areas should prove to be good DS terrain, especially if the water is flowing. This will be a mix of roads to get to the objective.

We will get you used to the ride!

Re: South of DFW Run - April 22, 2017

Well dang. I just realized this is the same weekend as the Junction ride. Why do you guys keep organizing rides on the same weekend as some of the biggest events on the forum? We don't have many rides the way it is, and now you're making us not be able to attend everything we would.
There was one ride in march (same as around the bend). Now there is another one in April (same as junction ride). Is it so hard to cooperate with other rides on the forum?

Is there any video publicly available by chance? Would love to check it out if so!!!

Re: South of DFW Run - April 22, 2017

I'm currently a maybe. Dropped the bike off at monkey wrench cycles for some much needed maintenance and minor repair. I told Frank I wasn't in a big hurry for it so we'll see if it's out of the shop by then.

Re: South of DFW Run - April 22, 2017

Well, cause I am a lazy sod, I just reserved a hotel in Waxahachie for Friday night so I don't have to get up too early Saturday morning to join the ride!! Sylvie and I will both be there, my daughter has practice AP exams the same day so can't join us (again!!).
Looking forward to meeting everyone again (and hoping for no punctures this time!!).
