Oklahoma City Metro Thread

Thought we should start a thread for those of us stuck living in the metropolitan area of OKC... I recently went on a ride in Arkansas and met 3 folks from the area who don't have anyone to ride with. Thought we could have a spot to give a shout out to others in the city area to organize rides, discuss issues related to the metropolitan area. There are a lot of different kinds of riders who like to ride in different ways, so lets keep it open to everyone. If I hear of anything happening around the city i'll try to post it... you do the same..

Peter over and out

I haven't been to Jones very many times but I don't recall very much gear other than a few hemets. Ajax seems to have quite a bit.

The closest place to the metro area for any of the gear we want, is in...Dallas. We take road trips down to the Moto Liberty store. On the plus side, there is a great little Korean restaurant just down the street from them.
Jones Off-Road has almost nothing, gear-wise.

Test Drive a Can-am Spyder this weekend

Got this in an email... not my thing but could be fun... Happening in Bricktown...

"I wanted to let you know that our dealership is having a Can-am Spyder Test drive event in Bricktown in Oklahoma City next weekend on April 27 and 28 from 10am-6pm both days. It will be located at the NW corner of Sheridan & Mickey Mantle Drive. The location will be clearly marked with banners. This is OKC's first Spyder event, and since we were Oklahoma's first dealer back in 2008, we got selected to be the supporting dealer. If you wouldn't mind, please pass the information along to any members you feel might be interested. This will be one of the few chances to get an extended test drive on a Spyder on the actual roads (not in a parking lot). Thank you very much and we hope you are having a wonderful spring! "

Ride to Eat

Not really a riding destination, but I tried "The Cow Calf-Hay" this last weekend w/ my wife and it was very good. I actually live only 2 miles from this but had never tried it. Some folks that I work with recommended it and I was not disappointed. It is on the SE corner of 33rd & Broadway, in Edmond, behind the Jamba Juice & Little Caesar's.

I usually just go to Johnnies but my next burger outing is going to be at the Cow. If everyone likes it, I'm planning to take all the credit for finding it. If they complain about the food, then I'm going to blame it all on you!

Go by and see Dan at Maxeys on NW 39th and he may know about upcoming rides plus he can get you whatever gear you want.

From Norman here.

Yeah I got my Olympia stuff at Moto Liberty in Dallas. Used to buy stuff at Cycle 1 which is now closed. Have bought some stuff at Cycle Queer on occasion.

I'm down for a big bike ride, or a dirtbike ride (as long as you don't go too fast on your orange bike, I'm on a DRZ for now). Just let me know. I'm a night shift ER nurse so I get a lot of weekdays off if any of you others have weirdo schedules too, let's ride!

I love day rides to Mt. Scott, Talimena Drive, or anywhere else east of here a couple hours, just let me know!

I keep trying to figure out some day rides and such taking dirt roads... but here in the city you have to drive a bit to get out to the dirt roads... I think it might be fun to go to somewhere eat lunch and head back...

so if anyone knows of some day trips from the metro please share...

I came up with this one going to Stillwater...

OKC Metro to Stillwater

I just recently found this website for county roads for Oklahoma... you have to look it up by county and it is in PDF form... but it tells you if the road is dirt or not... on the Stillwater route i used google maps and zoomed in to see if it was dirt or not... one small stretch is actually paved but looked like dirt because it was so rough....

http://www.okladot.state.ok.us/maps/county/index.htm

Not sure if other people are interest in these kinds of things... but i have to have something to occupy the back of my brain while i'm stuck at work all day...

My wife and I have enough of an interest in these kinds of things that we recently purchased two BMWs just to ride the county roads around here. She still has her old Yamaha TT225 and I still have my CanAm Qualifier dirt bike, but these aren't street legal.
Thanks for posting the route and the road website!

I'm still a few weeks away from getting my new to me fe570 street leagal, but I would be interested in a ride from time to time.

If you started your trip a few more miles north at Seward Rd & Hwy 74 there is a park and ride area if someone wanted to haul their bike to the start. Seward is paved from Hwy 74 west and goes into Cashion, but is dirt going east and loops around Liberty Lake.
