    Hey all,
    Does any one Know of a short after dinner type ride in the Tulsa area? An hour or so long. I've covered east to the channel. Not bad by the way, not much gravel but not bad. Do you know of something cool and close? Let us know. Thanks all, Take care..

    Anyone that might be headed to the Center of the Universe Festival this weekend in downtown Tulsa, please stop by our booth near Guthrie Green.

    GreenHouse Clothing. We'll be doing customized t-shirts on site. I'll be there Friday 6-midnight and Saturday 2-6.:evil

    ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

    Live music. Food. Drink. And lots of groovy people. The Center of the Universe Festival is a two-day, non-profit music and arts experience held in Tulsa’s booming Brady Arts District. The event, scheduled for July 25-26, 2014, is named after the popular downtown Tulsa landmark, the Center of the Universe, located on the Boston Avenue pedestrian bridge between Archer and First Street. Founded in 2013, the festival drew more than 80,000 fans in its first year.

    WHAT TO EXPECT

    The 2014 festival will feature more than 100 bands on three outdoor stages and ten club venues. So, yeah, if you like music, you’ll love this event. But do your homework ahead of time because with that many bands playing in so many places, you will want a game plan to soak in all the tunes you want to hear. In addition to all the live music, a street market gives local and regional artists a platform to display and sell their work. Hungry? Thirsty? Behind on your people watching? Choose from the many restaurants, bars and clubs in the Brady District or walk up to numerous food trucks and other vendors we bring in to fill your belly and wet your whistle.

    MORE THAN MUSIC

    We want the good times to roll long after the last guitar pick is thrown. That’s why we give back. Our primary focus is to help the Brady Arts District continue to grow. We also donate a portion of festival proceeds to Tulsa Public Schools’ music program and to the trolly service that helps make this very walkable district even easier to get around. It’s our way of waving our lighters in support of a higher cause.

    Can you recommend a motel in the area? I'm rolling through tomorrow on the way east (in a cage), that fest looks like a good stopping point!

    Sorry I missed this till now. Lots of cheap motels off 244, 44, or 51. None that I'd particularly recommend over another. Best of luck and safe travels.

    I have decided to try and sell the KLR to get a DR650 again. I went to tulsa and set on one and fell in love. Open to trades for a dr650 or maybe a drz400. Here is a link to my add. Located in Ponca City.

    Have you tried the old 97 highway from Sand Springs up toward Skiatook? Kinda twisty 2 lane blacktop with good side roads to explore, it also goes by the John Zinc Ranch. Rode alot of good enduros there in the 80's!

    Apparently you can buy some kids along that road. I picked up this slightly used 12 year old kid the other day and put my old boots and jacket on him. :lol3

    There's a bunch of roads out that way for exploring that are blacktop or white rock. I did a little exploring on the way out of town on the SV650 to deliver it to the new owner so they aren't too rough/technical/etc.

    Hey Okies. I'm in Stillwater visiting the girl at school while on a big trip. She's busy tomorrow so I figured I'd go find some dirt to ride in. Any suggestions? I prefer easier stuff to go with my lack of dirt experience.

    Riding a DR650 with Shinko 700s.

    You might check out the OAT:

    http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=836706

    Here's another site with some links to the various sections. The Perry to Cleveland section isn't far from Stillwater. That's a pretty nice (and easy) ride.

    I did the suggested section of the OAT, only in reverse. Once I hit 177 I took that back up to Stillwater. It was a lot of fun, definitely a different kind of riding I get back home. Love that red dirt.

    Thanks for the recommend!

    Hello everyone! Just bought this beautiful 2013 KLR and looking for some good places to ride and/or people to ride with in the area. I've ridden a few dirt roads around the the Guthrie area, but looking for good new areas.
