    Me and the gf will be driving to my folks in Broken Arrow from the Boulder area for the holidays and I will have my DRZ and I might bring my girls bike too. Looks like the weather wont be to bad and I was wanting to ride. Is there any good places to go on the way home? I still havent decided on a route back home yet, i was looking at little sahara looks small but might be fun. Any suggestions would be appreciated. :ear

    I used to run fourwheels out a Little Sahara State Park all the time and its a blast. Lots of guys out there on 2 with super scooper rear paddle tires tear it up and air it out. Got to have a flag/whip that meets the height, can be bought at the buggie shops. Got to ride like a madman on the dunes on a bike, good Dakar practice for ya.

    Depends on what your after good paved for you and the gf or backroads plenty are out there. I think a nice trip would be over to Oark for a lunch, but I'm thinking I would want some electric heat. Still many roads closer to BA that you could tool around.

    Didn't read well- "on the way home". Yes little Sahara would be nice and sandy for you and there's still lots of section miles you could always ride on in western OK just like the TAT.

    No problem, Enjoy. Don't forget the flag, tools and/or zip ties to attach it. Have Fun. Hit Buttercup
