    There are infinite miles of smooth gravel county roads, and a couple of offload parks within 40 miles.

    Hello, newbie to the site. 51 yr old. I ride an 800 GSA among other things. New to the ADV riding but experienced dirt and street rider. I live about an hour south of Dallas outside Ennis but work in Irving. Looking for other riders to join up with for either weekend trips or longer. Can trailer up to 3 bikes to farther destinations in case that helps someone out. I am an avid camper but don't mind roughing it and staying in a hotel or any combination. Hot showers are good from time to time.

    Hi all. New member in Arlington, Tx. Have had a few bikes over the years doing a lot of different riding but have never had a street legal bike I could do ADV rides on until recently when I picked up a Yamaha WR450R.

    Anyway....looking for some ADV rides that are mostly off road.

    I have a few street bikes as well so interested in those rides too....but I know where the good paved roads are.......I don't know much about good ADV roads yet.

    Your in Texas...Land of private land. If you want to go true dual sporting head to Arizona. That's what I did. I grew up in North, TX. Took a trip to Arizona in the mountains. Moved there the first chance I got . Real dual sporting territory out there!

    This is very true, relatively little public land in Texas. And the county roads in the urban and suburban areas are mostly paved. Head to the rural counties to find dirt/gravel county roads.

    Hello All!

    According to the moderator, this is where I should say hi, and introduce myself. My names Rick, and I am addicted to riding. I have had many bikes over the years to include cruisers, a KLR650, a few Harleys, and currently an Africa Twin. After buying the bike on Black Friday, I have gone a little nuts with the credit card... full cage from Altrider, along with their skid plate, Oxford heated grips, and a set of Tusk panniers. I just got my tires in today, so I'll likely be installing them throughout the week. I'm looking forward to racking up the miles, and find some trails or other off road riding. If there is anyone wanting to go to, or planning a trip to Bridgeport or other OHV parks, let me know, as I'd like to tag along. Additionally, I'd like to do some training too, so if anyone is getting together to practice, please let me know.

    I'm still working on my profile, so if there are any stalkers, you wont see much yet.

    Greetings.

    Mark here. I'm relatively new to Texas who lives south of the Metroplex, not far from 35W and 67. Been around the forum a bit, getting active, getting to know folks. I've been riding on and off since the early 80's.

    Always looking for riding buddies, fellas who like to ride near and far. When I had a Tenere, I didn't do a lot of day tripping in favor of more 3 to 7 day adventures that took us 1,500 - 2,000 miles. I didn't know why. Now that I have new KTM Super Adventure, I know why. The Tenere was just ok to ride, this SA is fun. Been awhile since I've been on a FUN bike.

    Have some local paved and dirt haunts, usually try to ride locally several times a month and do a long weekend 4-5 times a year with a big trip in there somewhere. Anyway, if you're ever riding south and west of DFW, give me shout.

    Hey guys,

    I live in Fort Worth. I have a 2017 Africa Twin. I commute on it a fair amount. REALLY want to take this thing off-road. Without getting arrested for trespassing, lol... Any suggestions on where to go? Would be cool if we could set up a meetup on meetup.com or something similar. I've heard there are public trails on the outskirts of the metroplex. Is this true? I saw rdm197apd mentioned Bridgeport, doesn't look like that's too far. Would be cool to get out with a group and go.

    Crossbar in Davis, OK is awesome! http://www.crossbarranchok.com There is an easy trail and then there is what we call "The Man Trail" 18 miles of single track, 15 creek crossings, over 6000 acres of fun.

    That ain't no joke. Spent 15 years outside of Tucson - endless desert roads no matter where you looked. GS stuff. Dirt bike stuff. First time rider stuff. Twisty stuff. Good riding in every direction.

    Doesn't get much more last minute, but I'm riding down to Granbury for breakfast and would welcome company. I'll be at the Smokehouse/Shell station on I35W and FM 917 at 8am (not the stand-alone Shell on the southbound side)

    Just picked up a 2017 vstrom 650 a couple weeks ago I'm in Forney east of Dallas. Put 700 miles on the bike the first 2 weekends I had it. I ride often. Haven't had a bike in 10 years but used to ride crotch rockets back in my younger years. And I've had atv's. I know the paved roads in Arkansas and SE Oklahoma really well. I host a car cruise through the ozarks twice a year for the North Texas ST's. Looking to start hitting some dirt trails soon once I finish putting on my farkles. Have crash bars already but need barkbusters, soft panniers, and a skid plate before I venture off the pavement. Actually going on a road trip next weekend with 3 friends to Hotsprings June 23rd. But they ride Harleys. Looking for local bike meets that have adventure riders and would love to go on some fun rides

    Pacman is referring to the "South O' The 'Plex" on TwoWheel Texans. We have meetups for eating and riding. Mostly south of the DFW metroplex.

    We had a good ride this past Saturday: Red Oak, Ennis, Italy, Waxahachie.
