TARA DFW North January Happenings

Hey guys...hope everyone had a great Christmas and also has a great New Year!

Just to start off 2018 in a confusing way....our 1st Tuesday get together will be held on January 9...which is actually the 2nd Tuesday. I didn't figure we would have too many guys make it on January 2...since its the first day back to work after the holidays.

I was finally able to reserve the room at Spring Creek BBQ in Grapevine...so that's where we will meet on January 9...at 7PM. The address is: 315 State Highway 114W, GV, 76051.

Rides: If anyone is planning rides...feel free to post them here, and come on the 9th so that you can tell the other guys!

I'm hoping to get out to Barnwell Mtn sometime around the middle of the month...for a dirt bike day. The date will just depend on work...and the weather forecast.

Rider Contact List: Since this weekend might be a little icy, while I'm sitting around watching bowl games...I hope to rework the contact list. I am going to sort it out by location. That way it will be a quick reference to find riders nearby.

See you guys on the 9th!

Can't make it tonight, still trying to get over the flu.

Re: TARA DFW North January Happenings

We had a good turnout last night for our 1st Tuesday get-together...15 or so riders showed up, had good BBQ and talked bikes and rides for an hour or so.

Robert Lee briefed the group on the Spring Redneck Ramble. This year he is working with Chris D. (famous for his monthly DFW ADV rides!) on the event. It will be held in May, and will be a two day event. One day of skills tests and competitions, and one day of great D/S riding in the Bonham area. If you want more info...contact him directly at: littlegeneral54@juno.com There will be a thread on TWT as the date approaches. Check out his website: http://dualsportuniverse.com for info from last fall's ride in Jacksboro. He also reminded everyone of an upcoming D/S ride in the Castroville area next Saturday. This is a ride put on by the San Antonio TARA Chapter. The link to the ride is: http://www.twtex.com/forums/showthread.php?t=116119

Max Hendrix made the meeting and briefed the riders on his ride schedule for this year. He has a group of ADV riders that take three major rides each year: Big Bend, Colorado, and Moab. I know some guys who have been on his rides...nothing but great reviews! He has been doing this for several years and has it all worked out. If you have been thinking of going on a big trip, get in touch with Max at: motomax409@gmail.com

Monday the 15th is a holiday, and a couple guys are thinking of heading out to Trophy Club for the day. Feel free to post here is you want to join in.

I hope to go out to Barnwell Mountain http://www.barnwellmountainra.com/ on Saturday the 20th and spend the day out there. I've never been, but it sounds like fun. I won't be able to confirm I'm going until Wednesday or so. It will depend on work and the weather (I'm a big wimp...not going unless the forecast is 50+). As soon as know for sure...I will post. I can't camp out because I have to be home Friday night...so will just get up early and drive out Saturday am...then home that evening.

Anyone wanting to go for a ride...feel free to post it here! There's always some good weather days to get in some miles!

BIKES FOR SALE: Forgot to mention that we found out there are a couple bikes for sale in the group last night. A BMW 1200 and a KTM 690. I know the owners and both bikes are in good condition and well taken care of. If you are interested....drop me a PM and I will put you in touch with the owners!

Re: TARA DFW North January Happenings

Barnwell Mountain...Saturday. At this time I am still planning on heading out to BM for a day of dirt riding on Saturday. Their website is: http://www.barnwellmountainra.com/. I will make the final decision by Wednesday night. Right now the long range forecast is cold with light rain/snow through the week...chance of showers Friday night, but then it is supposed to warm up into the 60s on Saturday.

My plan will be to leave early Saturday am...and be at the park by the time they open...ride most of the day...then head home in the afternoon. If you are thinking of going...let me know. If no one else wants to go...I probably won't either.

Don't forget to visit the TARA website: http://txadvriders.org/ You can see what all the chapters across the state are doing. Where and when the rides are!

Re: TARA DFW North January Happenings

Barnwell Mountain...Saturday. Still watching the weather for a trip to Barnwell on Saturday. Right now its 50/50. Temps should be ok...low 50s in the morning, and up to 60s after lunch, but there is a chance of rain. I don't mind riding in the cold & I don't mind riding in the rain...but I don't like riding in cold rain! I will decide whether I want to go by tomorrow night at this time. If anyone else is definitely going...go ahead and post your info.

Re: TARA DFW North January Happenings

Barnwell Mountain...SaturdayThe weather forecast is good enough for me to give it a shot. Lows in the morning will be 50+ and it will be warming up to over 60 after lunch. The chance of rain has dropped, and just for scattered showers. So...I am a definite yes to go over there. I will leave early enough to show right after they open...8 to 830. I've never been...and don't know anything about the parking setup, but will be in a dark brown Tahoe with a hitch bike carrier. I will hang the DFW TARA banner on it somewhere. If I'm not at the truck...I'm probably out riding and will be back shortly. Be sure to look me up if you come out. If you are coming...be sure to post here so we can keep an eye out for you! See you Saturday.
