    Our local riding/drinking club (aka the Tulsa Tuesday Pub Crawl Riders) were closely following the Dakar Rally and did our best to emulate the pros within Oklahoma state boundaries. Inmate Newner organized a weekend visit to Little Sahara State Park in western Oklahoma. Luckily, we all made it out alive.:deal

    There were ten of us:
    Newner XR250
    Dirt2007 KLX300
    Frontiercat TE449
    JumpJet 400EXC
    Tomski74 DRM650
    DirtyDog KLR650
    _cy_ GSPD
    Throttlemeister Honda 400EX
    FatBob Suzuki Z400
    Yanush Honda Rincon 680

    Pics, videos, and tales from the event will be compiled here. Enjoy.

    The mornings were a bit cold.

    Nice vid. Wish I could have ridden this morning. :cry

    Next time we go out there, I think some headphones and jamming tunes would be appropriate.

    A few more of my pics.

    The early arrivals included Throttlemeister, Newner, JumpJet, and I. we drove through snow on the three hour drive, but wasted no time getting out in the sand.

    The terrain was amazingly packed and the traction was much better than expected (especially for those of us without paddle tires).

    Took a bit of practice to learn how to ease over the crest of the big dunes.

    None of us could understand why Newner couldn't keep that tiny bike upright. :scratch
    Throttlemeister gave it a spin and wiped out a bit.

    Meanwhile, JumpJet and I were buzzing around them. I missed getting evidence of his jumps and wheelies.

    Tiring work. As you can see from the attire, it was pretty damn cold Saturday morning.

    At about lunchtime, the rest of the crew had largely arrived. We occupied three campsites and readied for another trip out to the sand.

    iPhone pics...

    Of course one of the bikes wouldn't run.:ddog
    So we had to pass the time with beer. Unfortunately, the beer led to outrageous public decency[?]

    I was just watering trees :deal

    Anyway, here is another vid. It's pretty long (12 mins), but it's a montage of about 3 hours of riding.
    BTW, you can watch it in full HD 1080. Hope you like it:
