Re: Texas Adventure Riders Association

DFW is huge and growing fast. Lots of people building in FW suburbs out west of Azle, Willow Park, and Cresson, even out past Springtown and Weatherford there are tons of new ranchettes. Lots of people building in Dallas suburbs out towards and east of Rockwall, Terrell, and Ennis. North and south DFW runs from Denton and Frisco to Hillsboro and Corsicana. Suburbs are 80-90 miles apart N/S and E/W. Worse, just about the whole area is traffic 12-16 hours a day, so even a central location is a 2 hour ride for some folks. I see 80-90 miles killing weeknight meet-and-greets and management meetings, but for all-day or weekend rides, 80-90 miles is nothing when neighboring chapters want to work together. Two chapters for DFW probably will not be enough to cover the geography.

Sort of. ADV generally refers to longer trips on bigger bikes and includes highways to cover distances to dirt, up to around the world. Usually 650cc and up. DS usually means someplace dirty near home or RV or motel, often with a trailer, with short paved starts and between dirt areas. Usually 650cc and down.

However, never bet on what you won't see where. There once was a nutcase who rode a TW200 from Saginaw to Van Horn, then Chispa and Pinto Canyon Roads one day and FM170 between Presidio and Study Butte, up to Fort Davis, and on to Van Horn the next, then Old River and Old Ore Roads the next, then back to Saginaw. Funny thing was, way out in the middle of BBNP, about 25 miles from the nearest pavement, said nutcase stopped for pictures in the foothills and someone rode up on a 1200cc BMW. Said nutcase on the TW ran in to the Beemer rider again a couple months later, after riding from Saginaw TX to some mining road near Tincup CO. Odd as it seems, these two are really not that extreme, either.

I am looking for someone to handle the San Antonio monthly meet & greets.

The next Breakfast and Ride is Adventure Rider Breakfast Series - 2/18/17 - Backyard Bistro + 2 day ride option Then the 3rd Saturday each month except for January, the Medina County 250 will be held the Saturday of Martin Luther King Jr. weekend.



We are looking at adding a Dual Sport / Adventure ride starting in Carlsbad, New Mexico to Alamogordo and back. One out route may roughly follow the NMBDR route to Cloudcroft then drop down to Alamogordo with the return on a different route, as much as possible. This area also gives us the option of true dual sport sections, including alpine single track. More info to follow...it will probably be Labor Day weekend.

Example of an Adventure out route

"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Simmons1, I would definitely be interested in being a part of some of your organized rides.... Maybe we could find some good rides in the North Texas area, too.

Caddo and LBJ Grasslands are combined about 35,000 acres and crisscrossed with park service and dirt/gravel roads. The soils in these areas are types easily eroded so stick to the roads. These are excellent locations for newbies because the roads usually are in pretty good shape with a variety of emergency and convenience services nearby for peace of mind that allows enjoying the scenery and wildlife. The Grasslands and nearby areas would be great places to explore and make up a ride route to share the nice places you discover.

EDIT: National Forest and Grassland maps available here.

DFW has a meet n greet most Tuesday's. They have been doing this for years. I started in 2004 and they were doing it before then. There are some retired dualsporters and some street only riders in the group, but most of the group ride dualsport bikes.

Are you sure this wasn't the planning meeting for the DFW Sumo Wrestling club? Oh wait, I see Dail hidden in there.

Note the almost empty plate of cookies...

I think I was calling EVERYONE fat (except Dail). I'll let you be in charge of the "panty check" to determine what people are wearing down there...

Start a West TX chapter. The whole idea is to get more exposure and more people involved.
