Hey guys…it’s almost February. 1st Tuesday falls on the 6th. Spring Creek was booked for the next two months, so I went next door and got a room at El Fenix. It’s not really a private room…more of a separate section, but I think it will work out fine for us. Won’t hurt to try a little Tex-Mex anyway. Right now I don’t have any rides planned for next month. Due to the weather being iffy…If I come up with something it will probably be a short notice event. Something like posting it on Wednesday for the following weekend. If anyone has something they want to try and plan…post it up here. We also have a thread on TWTEX.com. The link is: http://www.twtex.com/forums/showthread.php?t=116457 Usually just about everything that goes here will also be posted there, but there are other riders posting there also, so check it out if you haven’t yet.
Don’t forget…1st Tuesday…February 6 @ 7PM…El Fenix in Grapevine. 401 W State Highway 114, Grapevine, TX 76051 See you there!
Barnwell Mountain…Saturday. At this time I am still planning on heading out to BM for a day of dirt riding on Saturday, Jan 20th. Their website is: http://www.barnwellmountainra.com/. I will make the final decision by Wednesday night. Right now the long range forecast is cold with light rain/snow through the week…chance of showers Friday night, but then it is supposed to warm up into the 60s on Saturday.
My plan will be to leave early Saturday am…and be at the park by the time they open…ride most of the day…then head home in the afternoon. If you are thinking of going…let me know. If no one else wants to go…I probably won’t either.
If the weather is good Saturday….come on out. Nothing better than a day on a bike during the winter!
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.
