We had a good turnout last night for our 1st Tuesday get-together…15 or so riders showed up, had good BBQ and talked bikes and rides for an hour or so.
Robert Lee briefed the group on the Spring Redneck Ramble. This year he is working with Chris D. (famous for his monthly DFW ADV rides!) on the event. It will be held in May, and will be a two day event. One day of skills tests and competitions, and one day of great D/S riding in the Bonham area. If you want more info…contact him directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org There will be a thread on TWT as the date approaches. Check out his website: http://dualsportuniverse.com for info from last fall’s ride in Jacksboro. He also reminded everyone of an upcoming D/S ride in the Castroville area next Saturday. This is a ride put on by the San Antonio TARA Chapter. The link to the ride is: http://www.twtex.com/forums/showthread.php?t=116119
Max Hendrix made the meeting and briefed the riders on his ride schedule for this year. He has a group of ADV riders that take three major rides each year: Big Bend, Colorado, and Moab. I know some guys who have been on his rides…nothing but great reviews! He has been doing this for several years and has it all worked out. If you have been thinking of going on a big trip, get in touch with Max at: email@example.com
Monday the 15th is a holiday, and a couple guys are thinking of heading out to Trophy Club for the day. Feel free to post here is you want to join in.
I hope to go out to Barnwell Mountain http://www.barnwellmountainra.com/ on Saturday the 20th and spend the day out there. I’ve never been, but it sounds like fun. I won’t be able to confirm I’m going until Wednesday or so. It will depend on work and the weather (I’m a big wimp…not going unless the forecast is 50+). As soon as know for sure…I will post. I can’t camp out because I have to be home Friday night…so will just get up early and drive out Saturday am…then home that evening.
Remember…we keep a monthly thread running on TWTEX. The link is: TARA DFW North January Happenings
There is all kinds of great riding and bike info on the Two Wheeled Texans website. Be sure to check it out.
