    Did I see one of you guys today just south of the intersection of SW 149th and Penn in OKC? Pretty sure it was someone on a KTM adv bike.

    Pretty sure it wasn't me. I kind of like those KTMs but I don't have one.

    I rode out 149 to the trails at draper yesterday about 10:30, perfect weather, little muddy but a fun ride.

    Hey guys i'm new to the site and new to adventure riding but Ive rode most of my life and even raced as a pro Supermoto racer nationally. Anyway enough about me and my backgroud.... In a few weeks from now I'm planing on picking up on the OAT around Muldrow, possibly forth smith from a buddies house and heading south. Question i have is that a good place to pick up on it or should I start further south? Looking at doing a 2 day to a 2.5 day ride. Will be on a wr450. Ride from the truck about a days ride camping and then back tracking to the truck and driving home.

    Thanks for putting this ride together. It was a good route and very fun - except for the rain. Lisa says thanks for riding her bike around the washed out section.

    My pleasure. It was good to meet and ride with you and Lisa. We will have to do it again sometime .
    I may go back to the WMA road with a shovel and fix that washout to make it passable.

    I'm new to this site so Hello. Have been a rider all my life, started out on Jr.MX & raced thru the late 80's. Had all manner of street bikes but now on an '03 XR 250. Live in Stephens Co. Like backroad/dirt 'sploring. Nice to see all the friendly Okies out here!

    ^ Likewise. Welcome to Oklahoma. We have a TON of underappreciated riding in this state.

    I do believe Oklahoma is the considered the most diverse state from a geological standpoint, so no reason to be bored - especially with back road dirt riding, my favorite.

    Perhaps some guys who are familiar with the Lawton area will be on to give some suggestions. Looked into the Wichita Mountains yet? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wichita_Mountains

    Any of you folks ride regularly in the Southeast? I've been exploring dual sporting but there are occasions I think "Hmm, if I get hurt out here alone with no cell service...my wife is gonna kill me."

    Yes, why I have a gen 2 Delorme Inreach SE being delivered tomorrow. Where I ride (NEOK) there is almost no service. Should have done it a LOT earlier, but started looking at my phone in various spots and it was at 0 bars. Not good.

    I need to look into getting one of those. I'm also wanting to find a better (but inexpensive) GPS solution than my phone, due to spotty cell coverage.

    Modern phones can do Nav with no cell service. Download maps into phone, most phones have GPS Satellite antenna these days. Do a little reading in the GPS forum, several threads there on using a phone as GPS.

    I'm using a $125 rugged waterproof Android phone as GPS these days, Nomu S10, in a lot of ways it is better than any Garmin product, I don't use it as a phone at all. It's also my new camera :-)

    That's right. Just cache the section you want to ride in Google maps and save it to the Offline maps section. You can pull it up in a no service area and your gps will ping your location on the saved map.
    I used it in Big Bend since there's almost no service in the entire park. Worked great and helped me get my bearings in the Chihuahuan desert.
    Good luck and have fun.

    I had forgotten about that feature of Google maps. Do y'all have a topomap app you'd recommend?
