I do use a GPS but I still never have any idea where I am. I just follow my tracks. Sunday I passed very few bikes. I think two bikes were turning right onto a road, heading the opposite direction of me. I was leaving what i refer to as the 'dreaded bridge'. I would have been solo if you passed me. Yes, I do dirt! My new-to-me ride is a wr250r, which is what i took to RTB. i live in north austin. i'm taking a friend out to look for dirt in bastrop one day this weekend, probably saturday. i don't know where you are, presumably DFW area, but you are always welcomed to join. maybe we could meet halfway one day for a 2 hour buzz in some dirt.
