Oklahoma ADV Riders BS Thread
Hi All,

Just thought I'd start a thread so Ya'll follow Okies would have a place to get together. It should make it easier to find OK info or let others know if you want to put together a group ride. I started a Lincoln Co. thread,

but wanted to include all of Oklahoma.

I'm riding!
Out of Fort Gibson...rode today, rode yesterday, rode the day before! Gonna ride tomorrow too! Wanna ride?? Going to Bill Eddys in Fayetteville to drool!

lewismedlock 01-02-2009 07:50 PM

I'd certainly like to see us get a little more organized, and more importantly, ride more!

Dirt2007 01-02-2009 07:55 PM

Thanks for starting the thread. Someday we will be as cool as Kansas and have 312 pages too.

72 in the panhandle great riding weather
Beautiful day in the Panhandle today! 72 and little wind! Rode over 200 miles around Black Mesa and Kenton area. Getting to know my GS. Loven it.
Is anyone in Oklahoma planning on attending Uncle's around the Bend?

Mr. Guy 01-04-2009 09:26 AM

Glad to see the response. 312 pages, that would be something. I'm planning to go to Big Bend with another group the weekend after Uncles ride. Little Foot mentioned a ride out to the panhandle to a place called Picture Canyon sometime this spring, I'd like to tag along for that one. Maybe we could make this a planned ride. Just a thought.

Hey let's put some OK pics in here too.

Checking in. :thumb

KLR is pretty toasted from Arkansas singletrack (PICS), so it will be garaged for a bit while I nurse it back into shape. I hope that, for my sake alone, the weather turns to crap.:lol3 I'm hauling off some junk today so I can settle into the garage for a while.

List of repairs / maintenance-
rear tire
fork seals (new springs?)
replace radiator fan
IMS tank(?)
replace / recover seat
repair fairing
replace(?) destroyed instrument panel
new bars w/ risers and barkbusters
new blinkers
countersprocket seal

Dog !!!
I saw those shots of your ride!! Cats!!! Put the KLR through it's paces for sure! Give a yell when anyone wants to to Gruber it. Fun place to ride. I live about 10 minutes from there so support (cold beverages, tools, etc.) is close if needed.

HighFive 01-04-2009 01:19 PM

I like to ride Gruber from time to time. But on my R² (WR250R) a lot more than my big fat Pig (KLR). Stillwater 500 is a good spot too. Its not so bad for the Pig. My friend, Krabill, rides it on his KLR.

Have you been down to Clayton (near Talihina)? Its a real hoot! Great dualsport spot.

Hi Dirtydog,

Nice pics, but I have to be honest, I'm not much of a single track rider. I have this fear of breaking things. It makes my riding a little to expensive. Good to hear from ya.


Mr. Guy 01-04-2009 01:37 PM

Hi Highfive,

I've been down to Honobia Creek WMA before, near Clayton, but they've closed a lot of it. But there's a lot in that area to ride in.


DirtyDog 01-04-2009 02:41 PM

I generally don't ride singletrack either, but was looking for a challenge. Technical dual sport is more my thing. Looking forward to riding more often when the springtime arrives.

Ride Oklahoma
Several Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, Kansas and Missouri dual sport riders converge on Clayton every year in October for a 3-4 day dual sport ride that provides something for everyone. Check out for more info on this and many other rides in and around Oklahoma. We currently have two from Kansas and three from Oklahoma heading south to join Uncle Dave in his unoffical ride around the bend. Big Bend is a super riding area especially in the winter as you can get away from snowklahoma and ride in the temperate conditions of south Texas and Mexico, if you prefer. The weather is great, the trails and roads even better and the people are super. Team Pink will be in Big Bend this year arriving on the 18th. Join us if you can. It is great fun. :clap :clap :clap

We have a Great Winter Dual Sport ride in just a few weeks, here is the link,

This is the ride report from last year :clap
