I was just seeing if there were many Strom riders in OKC on this list.

this area isn't used much, I just bought my 2013 DL-650 about 5 months ago and really like it. I have a few trips planned as soon as the weather gets better including a trip to Big Bend and Boquillas Mexico. I live in El Reno.

Do you still race? I traded my R-1 in on my DL-650. It is for sale at Oklahoma Honda. Some one is going to get a great race bike if they buy it. I spent 35 hundred on Ktech front cartridges and new penske rear shock just before i sold it. It seems to always be the case that when I finally get the suspension sorted out I end up selling the bike shortly after.

No, I quit after the 2010 season, just too old. Still have the SV race bike for track days though. Did you run the R1 at Hallett?

I have been to Hallet but that was years ago. This was from 2004, I am number 31 the only person looking at the camera



I rode my R-1 at College station last April. I could not believe how bumpy that straight away is at 150 plus. I could be a full time track rat but I just can not afford it.

I signed up for the Grand Tour of Oklahoma last Saturday.

Last yearI did all but the north western part of the Oklahoma Adventure Trail. It should be renamed the Oklahoma Ride. I only encountered about 100 yards of trail the whole time. Most of it was droning along with no real destination. Lots of dead ends and locked gates.



Lots of backtracking too.



This seems like a much better endeavor.

Grand Tour | Del City Oklahoma Honda Suzuki

I have my waypoints entered in the gps and routes planned. It would be easy to include many dirt roads in these loops. The loops are 5 to 6 hundred miles each and I will probably do each one in a weekend. There are 5 loops.

Yup, I'm on the SE side of the city. I'm running around on a white 2013, usually out around Lake Draper.
