Re: Outlaw Trax

place out soon, I can take the wife to Huntsville to spend the day with our
daughter who is at Sam Houston and then go play

I love the place but always want to be sure out of town folks understand what it is and isn't.

It's a small property, not really anywhere to just explore. 170 acres I believe.
Trails for the most part are beginner friendly, 1 easy/hard split.

What it is really, is a TORCS race track, literally. So very good practice even if you don't race. The loop is 5 miles unless you go with me and I have a 1 1/2 he's not using for some reason. Either way it's a 20-25 minute, rinse and repeat. For now it's what we have. And glad to have it.

What is the status of the Forest? Thanks.

5 Mile loop sounds good I like a loop like that it give you a good area to work on skills in a nice loop. You can go out make a loop come back make some suspension changes and go out and see if you are going forward or backward improvements

Re: Outlaw Trax

Dang. Liked the place but only went on open event weekends. It was real hard to beat $25 for the year to ride SHNF. Traveling elsewhere, like Milano, was also a treat while it was still around and as far as I wanted to go for an afternoon.

I'm just glad that I got to ride dirt while I was able. And I'm glad to have successfully sold my Christini. When SHNF was closed for months on end a few years back, I just knew my riding days were over in SE TX. Traveling to Gilmer or Red River is just too far to drive when jonesing for a day ride. All that's going to be left is MX parks. I'll keep my wheels attached to the ground, thank you.

Hope you're right, not sure why we have to wait to spring but there is other options luckily.

Don't want to be negative so that leaves me with nothing to say about Jimmy.

I have no idea, haven't been there in years. Stewart and Norman out of Beaumont knew him well if I remember right.
