Joe -- it is a scheduled race. Rest assured though, that by the end of the short course, c riders are usually going as fast as they possibly can to stay on time. and by the end of the long course, those guys are going as fast as they can as well.

An enduro, yes. A harescramble is the first one to the finish.

Nothing wrong with that. The first race i ever entered (1981) I rode in overalls, old boots and no gloves, ---to me comfort has always been more important than looks-- I won my class.

I competed in many trials events wearing borrowed boots, sweatpants, and a t-shirt. Nothing wrong with that.

The first enduro i ever entered (couple a decades ago,... or more ) I entered the open B class. I was on a KX 500. I finished 5th. IF I had entered the open A class i would have been 2nd.

The older I get, the better I was.

AaronP -- The kids will start around 9, the SxS around 10. The bikes around 11, and the quads around 1pm.

I'm loading up the truck and headed that way... tornado watch in the area be damned!

The typical enduro usually has some sections where timekeeping is required. Often at the beginning of the event. It normally turns out to be an all out race though in the end. Anyone that thinks an enduro is not a race, has never ridden one. A lot of the events now are going to a restart format where no time keeping is not required. It is an all out race from check to check. Someone correct me if I am wrong but I believe all the national races have gone to this format. It makes it a lot simpler for the new rider so I can understand this trend but being from the old school I still like the timekeeping. I started out riding timekeepers so it is hard to change. In a timekeeper you are required to be able to think and ride at the same time. I don't do either one real well, but I like to try.

I went down there and watched them for awhile last night. They're good. The guy second from left is the lead singer and an Adv rider. He rides a 650L.



They have a sort of a Lynrd Skynyrd country rock sound, which I like.

I did a little short video of them too. I did it with my Iphone so it doesn't really do them justice. I will attach it if I can remember how to do it.

I should have posted asking about more of the same before we left,but didn't. So now I'm askin.....You folks kno of any other "Can't Miss'em" type small paved roads (county roads I guess) with curviness & hills??? I'm gonna make a list for the next trip north. I've got the link for MotorcycleroadsUS. That's how I found the Indian Hwy & Welling Rd.
Here are some rides...

More info on the Indian Hwy and Welling Road? Doesn't strike a chord and I'm always interested in more local rides.

Thanx cinco....You posted up some roads that I didn't see listed on the websites. I guess some of ya'lls favorite local paved roads are still "reserved" to keep 'em less trafficy for ridin. ...& that's OK too.

Indian Trail Hwy runs from Bethel on 259 about 15 miles or so north of Broken Bow NW across 144 near Honobia & up to 271 just south of Talihina.
Welling Rd off of OK100 just east of OK82...runs north up to US62 just east of Tahlequah.
Both nice roads....
