Howdy Lubbock!

Howdy,

This is the Black Enchantress (my owner has posted a picture of me below).

My rider has just signed a contract in Lubbock, TX and will be moving me to Lubbock in June.

You fellas got anything for me to ride?

This is the Black Enchantress's owner/rider

Are you riding off or on-road?

I am considering either selling her or leaving her in Utah if the terrain is not worthy. I can always pick up something more street-oriented once in TX. Or conversely, a straight dirt bike if that's what the riding demands.

You son-of-a-bitch, how can you even think something like that after all we have been through? I hate you!

For the most part, the riding around here is on road. I ride a BMW 1150GS. Pretty much a street bike. Most of the good off road stuff is pretty far away.

Big bend, New Mexico, Colorado. So you're looking at 300-500 miles to get to riding. Most of the roads around here are straight and flat paved or dirt, I like the GS because I can comfortably ride somewhere and not be totally limited to pavement when I get there.

But, I've been thinking about buying a KTM 530 EXC as a second bike. Because the GS is a pig. There are a few riding areas/parks whatever you call them but I would rather have a straight dirt bike there.

My suggestion, keep the bike. And get a more suitable street bike when you get here. If you sell it, there are gonna be a few times that you will regret it.

I don't know any other Inmates in the area, maybe somebody else will chime in with their opinion.

If you are in to dirt-only motorcycles, there are a few really good private clubs that lease land to ride on within a 100 mile radius or so of Lubbock. The Lubbock Trail Riders have 10,000+ acres leased approx 45 miles or so SE of Lubbock. It is some of the best riding in the state, and we are hosting a round of the 2010 National Enduro Series.

We do have a waiting list right now, though I think the other clubs are accepting new members. Texas Offroad Network (TON) on the web is a good place to start.

I have sent a request to LTR and will be happy to contribute.

Welcome to Lubbock

There isn't much good mc riding near Lubbock. Most of the streets are flat and straight. The closest good dirt riding is Family Powersports Park near Southland, about 40 miles from Lubbock. The only catch...you have to buy a bike from Family Powersports to ride there! They have open house 2 or 3 Sundays a year. Lake McKenzie east of Tulia is fun and is about 100 miles away. Or as said earlier, join one of the clubs that have riding leases.

I get my singletrack fix by riding mtb. We have some pretty good trails in the area. If you're interested in that, drop me a pm. I'd be glad to show you the mountain bike trails.

I moved to Lubbock about 3 months ago. They are right about the long, straight, flat roads (with rough pavement, to boot). I don't have a dirt worthy bike (other than my MTB). But I'd still love to meet some other local riders and find some good roads in the area (or afar). I have a ZRX and a ninja 250 so I pretty much stick to the pavement for now...

Hope there is room for you soon in LTR. Great folks--I am a long time member. There is no Adventure riding that is really good close by. On top of that, you came from one of the greatest areas, which makes it worse. There are a few guys in LTR that have big Adventure bikes, and we do make trips to Big Bend, Cloudcroft, etc. every now and then.

If you do get into LTR, a smaller purpose-built single cylinder race/hard-core trail bike is what you will want. We have got some great trails, although the summer heat kills most of the riding, unless you start and quit early.

Talking

Come on John don't talk him out of a good old fashion 950 trail ride led by JP64. I leave Wed to pick up my big bike. (R1200GSA) A 950 is just a little ol trail bike right?
