NORTH TEXAS RIDE JULY 15, 2017 - BONHAM RUN 1

Well it looks like July 15 will be the day based on my calendar.

I put this up for planning purposes...but haven't decided on a ride yet. Based on the heat of the month I am thinking this will be a short run and try to keep it to 130 miles so we can finish by 1 or 2pm.
I am looking North to the Fan in county to Paris Tx area. I have also considered putting in at prosper again and going North for a stretch...there are some great roads up that way.

Stay tuned...i will get a route up in the next week or 2.

Chris

Re: NORTH TEXAS RIDE JULY 15, 2017 - Bonham Run 1

So here is the route for July.
This is the unfinished version of the route. The final will be posted before the ride. This is a short route of 144 miles. It will have some points of interest along the route. Possibly 2 or 3 water crossings...Alot of DIRT roads from what I can tell. I have personally seen one and it was cool because of the overgrowth.

The Map begins in Bonham Tx...at the McDonalds. There is a large parking lot if you bring a trailer. This will not be too fast of a ride because I am bringing my wife on her first backroads dual sport ride on her own bike...a Modified Honda CRF230M.

The route crosses thru the grasslands and makes a stop at Flying Tiger Field for some sight seeing.

This is the first ride in this area and it might to prove to be a good one based on what appears to be a lack of gravel. Some of the roads have very thick overgrowth...which is really cool.

Take a gander at this route, provide feedback, make your plans and meet us there..

Chris

I'll comment / sorta commit. I have a new to me Tenere and was planning on trying to make this if it is big bike friendly... if not Big Bike friendly may still make it on my WR250R if there are places to fuel up on the route (still have stock gas tank).

Re: NORTH TEXAS RIDE JULY 15, 2017 - BONHAM RUN 1

I am interested. The start is 100 miles from the house making it a long day even if the ride is short.

Thinking of doing this with the wife as well. Think there will be much deep sand?

I don't think so...we are still getting recon from the area...it should be an easy ride with some great scenery.
