Practically neighbors!

Justin80,

Cool. You and I are practically neighbors. :thumbup:
I'm in Quinlan, another 20 or so miles east on Hwy 276. I'm trying to construct a little maddog flat track out here. Check the thread about flattrack replicas for some background and a few grainy photos, etc.
Keep me posted on your return, we can go riding.

NOW! The rest of you, CHECK IN!

Now we're gettin' somewhere.

Shaun,

What kind of moto you have?
Send me a PM and we can meet up for a ride. I have my KTM in the truck right now, I'm fixing to take a lil trip down to the Lake Tawakoni dam in search of areas to ride down there. I'm up for some short rides this weekend if the weather cooperates. :bike:

See ya,
Kyle

pm sent

i tried to get a dfw group awhile back ago but no one really seemed interested. i didnt figure there would be an overwhelming response. i see dallas area folks posting all the time and i kinda figured we could get to know each other.

i love riding and it gets old/boring riding by myself.

Build it and they will come . . .

Hang in there. Don't buy a Harley yet. (or anytime soon) There are a few SuMo riders out there. And some we probably haven't found yet. I just started building a little dirt track in Quinlan. Then it began to rain. :headshake

My point is, several DFW Sumo riders have expressed interest in coming out and practicing on my little track, so the three of us out here don't always have to drive into Dallas. In fact, you can come out and try out the track.

:bike:

Groovey! With the rain we've been getting, It may be June before the track is ready. :rolleyes: Keep us posted.

Shaun, Will do. You nearly got out to my place.
I've been out on those gravel County Roads in the area between Poetry and Quinlan.
CR2400, etc.
I hear you on tires, I try to stay out of the mud, deep sand and that big caliche rock they use sometimes.

Well there are a few of us in Ft. Worth. I have a zook DRZ, but I don't get towards Dallas too often!
SilverJ,

You know B-UNIT and TJ? They used to post here on SMJ. Both on DRZ SMs. They rode with DFWriders.com or something like that.

Anyway, On March 21-23rd, There is a vintage brit bike / scooter rally going on called www.rockersvsmods.com A few of us SuMo are going along too.
I'm hooking up my helmet cam to the skidplate of my KTM and the side of a YSR to shoot rolling video to document the event. C'mon out. Biggest bike related Social event of the Spring. :rolleyes:

Kyle
