Looks like another must take ride. I have two meetings concerning work this week.

Is that a group ride or just a route you follow on your own whenever you feel like it?

the back country discovery routes are free to download and use. There are not like normal rides, you just use the route they provide.

We lost the grand mother of motorcycling yesterday. She is a dear friend and I am done for the day and devastated. Think I will get on my bike and ride to OKC for some coffee this morning at the Red Cup just to give me some time for this to process.
You can find out about Ardy's Kellerman thru her facebook page.

It is truly a sad day for the long distance motorcycling community.
Great picture of her

RIP Ardys

Just watched the trailer. Some of those roads/trails look very familiar!
I'm heading up there very soon. I'll try to take lots of pics,
but infortunately no video as my video cam got killed in a major auger
a while back.

The weather doesn't get any better for this time of the year here.
If you run into any trouble I'm straight south of the OAT on 183, and I'll be around (and riding, hopefully). Have fun!

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD! it is about time somebody from around here went and did something!!!!! i figured with this weather we'd be having all kinds of ride reports. Since the big eastern OAT trip i have been none stop working and giving the family some love.

A friend called me Saturday night and we went riding Sunday!!!

Mars, keep us updated, take some pics so we can live vicariously through you.

I didn't bring the bypass route with me can somebody give me a verbal description of the roads. I assume the southern part off Talihina still closed?

Ok... I'll try to explain, If you are heading south on the trail...
There is a section that heads south off of Highway 63, for a short bit then turns to the west... this is all good. At some point you will come to highway 259 and cross over at three sticks monument... this part is ok also...

After crossing over 259 at Three Sticks Monument and going 7.4 miles the route wants to turn south, and after going down the south section 2 or 3 miles you will find the route gated off... so don't go south there....

I think the idea to try and scout out is to keep going west and not turn south... So keep going down Co RD 254/Co Rd D1650, and it will turn into the infamous K Trail.... If it is open ... from the point on the original route when you would have turned south you keep going another 15.8 miles down the K trail and then you should hit Indian Highway and from there you will head south to highway 144 then go east to highway 259 and you will be back on the trail...

I should be free after about 10 am... so text or call if you have any questions and I will help however i can...

What is not known is if the K trail is still open... if not you will need to ride back to 259 and go south to hit the trail...
