1st Tuesday Notice: Tuesday, October 2 at 7PM...El Fenix in Grapevine. Cold beer, salsa, chips, and riding talk!:puke:

Upcoming Rides: October 5-7...Barnwell (Gilmer). Lots of trails...hard or easy...your choice. Just a group of buddies meeting up, camping & riding. Come for the whole weekend, or pick a day. They plan to arrive sometime after breakfast on Friday...and then ride until early Sunday afternoon. Come and go as you like...very informal. They will be parked in the premium RV spot #1...Brown/white Super C motorhome pulling and enclosed trailer. For more info: text Max...817-312-2208 (he's pretty busy this week...prefers texts so he can get back to you when able).

Redneck Ramble: I talked to the General a couple weeks ago. He isn't doing a fall Ramble because he just didn't have the time. He was gone on a long ride during the summer & just couldn't get it put together. He is planning the spring Ramble in Jacksboro. He recommended the Sooner Adventure Ride. Check out his website: www.dualsportuniverse.com

Sooner Adventure Ride: It is scheduled for October 28, but I haven't been able to find any additional info yet. I sent a message to a fellow that I think may be involved in the planning. As soon as I hear back...I will post here. The General recommends this ride!:flip:

Roll The Bones Rally IX: October 26-28. I've never been to this event, but this is the 9th edition...so it must be a good time! Check out their thread for all the info: http://www.twtex.com/forums/showthread.php?t=118048

Texas Hill Country 500: Scheduled for Nov 2-4. Approximately 500 mile ride in the hill country, with an overnight in Junction. Check the thread for all the specifics: http://www.twtex.com/forums/showthread.php?t=117802

I hope to see you all at El Fenix on Tuesday, October 2!:chug:

Hello Riders from DFW,

Is there anyone from the area going to the TX Hill Country 500 ?

Planning on going but would prefer not riding solo on the way down.


Thanks,

I'm planning on going, but I'm trailering my bike down. I know there are a couple other guys going...not sure if they are riding or trailering.

I am tentative, my son is having his Aggie ring dunk on either the 2nd or 3rd. If they do it on the 3rd, I am leaving Friday about 10. If they do it on the 2nd I am out. Crazy college kids :)

We had a great 1st Tuesday last night! There were 32 riders & family members there...we had so many folks there that we ran out of tables and chairs...:eek2: The best part was that we had several new faces. The weather is finally cooling off a little, and its a great time to be out riding. Hope to see all of you either out on the road...or the trails. Let's ride!:rider:

Thanks,
I just saw your post. I'm going and will be riding from McKinney on Friday morning. I will be staying until Monday morning, so I can rest after the full Sunday ride. I've decided to camp Sunday night at the Enchanted Rock Natural Area (only 60 miles from Johnson City, TX).

With that said, I'd like to ride down with someone as well. Even if you're coming back on Sunday, I'd like to ride down with you. I plan to ride through Hillsboro, then on to Mike's place, avoiding highways.

Let me know if you'd like to ride together.
