I’m planning to arrive on Thursday, dig in / set up camp/ get my bearing & scout out the area. If I ain’t had enough adventure I may stay until Monday. I’ve been in need of break for a while now.
I’ve been bowed up for months modifying my 2014 DR-Z400S. Just finished wire job tonight: driving lights(custom bracket using Ram Mounts) / USB & 12 volt plugs ( I made a custom bracket to hold all the switches and power ports)/marker lights (custom bracket) (got rid of the reflectors) / head & taillight kill switches /12 volt meter/dielectric grease on all connectors’ / Clutch and kickstand safety switches disabled.

Reflectors are required for Texas state inspection , good luck with it till somebody catches it . Reflectors incorporated into the marker lenses for front and rear are acceptable but you will still need side reflectors if someone is doing their job right .

Its a no brainer, you should go if you have the weekend free! Put that little bike behind the big truck and come on up.
If I can get my bike squared away. I'm not off, I'd take a couple days to make a 4 day weekend. I need a camp trip anyway...but probably do a cabin. It's easier to do my hair :mrgreen:

Can someone provide a description of the availability of fuel purchase along the routes? I've never been on to this event and thought it would be useful info for others as well. Haha, I get to test my estimated DRZ fuel range without a fuel gauge! First time to take her out on a rally. Looking forward to it. :rider:

Dang, I'm halfway considering going.
WHERE have you been, gurl? A week doesn't go by that I don't think about bugging you. I assume work has been keeping you hog tied.

How's the bike?

JTand I are still on da fence about RTB, but I'd say there's a fair to middlin chance we will be there.

Would you camp or get a cabin? Possum Hollow is a nice place.

**saw your post and immediately responded-without reading to the bottom. Lol

Be great to see ya there!

The salt mines have kept me so busy, my whole summer was a bust. I'm thinking cabin. And tonight I'm thinking of going for the trip even if my bike isn't ready...ie I'll fart around at camp or hike or something to entertain myself :lol2:

Oh it will, but my access card might not work when I come back :lol2:
Sure it will. They wouldn't want someone with the flu showing up for work and I'll bet you'll start feeling bad right before the Friday shift and will have a full recovery by Monday. :trust:

:lol2: Don't do this. Its bad advice.

Anyone know if there is a point in bringing the wife and kid? They won't be riding but would like to come if there is a group that won't ride or things to do in the area while we are out.

It's looking like this will be the first RTB's I'll miss. Got too many irons in the fire and I won't have my suspension back on my bike ! ! ! Just not enough hours in a day !

OK POST 1 is now updated. Please check to see you are there and marked appropriately:chug:

The venue is located on the lake and is pretty. Graham is nearest town of any size. The area is rich in history if your families are into that. There are several old frontier forts in the area including my fort, FT Belknap:trust:
