Re: North Texas Ride - October 22, 2017

Yes it does, at the Walmart parking lot and the Race Track gas station.

It should be a nice easy ride to explore the back roads in the North West area.

Re: North Texas Ride - October 22, 2017

Wish I could make it but Sundays don't work. I'll keep an eye out for a Saturday ride down the road. Post some pics along the way. I may try the ride solo some time as it's in my backyard.

Re: North Texas Ride - October 22, 2017

Not sure which route is the To or Return route.
Is the morning route though Bolivar or is that the Return leg?
May join up with you all, you come right by my house when you go north from Bolivar and turn onto Wade Road and cross Forester Road.
Or if that is the return leg, I can meet up when you get East of Slidell.
I am trying to get my bike back together by then. Have been chasing an electrical gremlin.
Thanks..

Re: North Texas Ride - October 22, 2017

Wade road is on the North bound route.

I will be leaving from the Race Trac gas station. But I will ride over to the Wal-mart parking lot before we leave to make sure we are all together.

Weather - Looks like it will pass by us before we gather and leave...then a sunny day of riding.

Re: North Texas Ride - October 22, 2017

Usually there are not waypoints unless I put them in. I import it as a GPX file with route only.

Re: North Texas Ride - October 22, 2017

Chris, I guess what is confusing me is when I open up the gpx in osmand is there is no starting point or end point so I can't even figure out where to meetup unless someone happens to mention it in the thread. Also there are no street names or anything shown (in osmand. Just what appears to be gps track. Are you still using osm for your map software?
I'm sorry but it just doesn't seem to be as user friendly as a typical gps and I'm trying to learn more but osmand doesn't have much as far as features on iOS.

Re: North Texas Ride - October 22, 2017

Shows the street names and stuff for me. Maybe you don't have the Texas detail map go to menu - download maps and make sure you download the USA Texas map.

Re: North Texas Ride - October 22, 2017

Works fine for me too.
I believe this is a TRACK, not a route.
Works on my Montana 600.

Re: North Texas Ride - October 22, 2017

I figured out the issue. I had attempted to download the Texas map and because it was so large it did not download over my data connection. I'm thinking of hooking up for the ride but I'm doubtful right now. Got a lot going on over the weekend.

Re: North Texas Ride - October 22, 2017

I am not going to make it either. Currently in AU. I am flying to Darwin tomorrow and am trying to work out renting a DRZ for Sunday to go for a ride in the outback. Hope you guys have fun on that ride, it is in my back yard and I ride some of those roads every week.

Re: North Texas Ride - October 22, 2017

Can someone please confirm, it looks like the ride will start from Walmart in Denton, I have this address and would like someone to confirm I am going to the correct place!!

Walmart - 2750 W.University Dr, Denton, TX 76201.
I assume kickstands up at 8:00am, so plan on being there for 7:45.

Regards Gary

Re: North Texas Ride - October 22, 2017

Just saw this thread and am interested in possibly joining you guys on this ride. Sundays don't usually work for me but I need to do some riding. If I make it I will see you guys at the Walmart before 8:00 I'm guessing.
