Scenic places to ride in Texas?


Recommended Posts

Best thing about Texas: It's close to Colorado. And Arkansas.

 

Seriously, what part of the state are you in?

 

And I'm seriously considering the WR450 myself, so let us know how that works out for you.

Get a green sticker for your bike if you haven't done so already. You can't ride Sam Houston without one, although I don't know if you need one since you have a "dual sport". Sam Houston is awesome, haven't been yet unfortunately though. There's a great riding area on Pelican Island, thousands of open acres, great for learning to ride. If you ever want to ride sometime, PM me, I'm out in Katy and need riding buddies.

You DO need a green sticker with a plated bike at Sam Houston. Plus $5/day to ride/park.

I've only ridden there in the pouring rain, 100% humidity, hot, so... not a real good intro, but I'll bet it's fun, and I'll be back (I'm in Dallas).

Arkansas has some great riding trails and some kick a$$ white water kayaking about 4 hours from my driveway. It also has some really nice people if you look in the right places. 

 

You know, I was born and raised in Texas and lived here my whole life and I can't WAIT to get out. Only green thing here is the money. (BTW, you'll be relieved that I'm not moving to Arkansas)

 

 

Oh, the other green thing is the 'Green Sticker'... the OHV sticker... thru 2015.

1. No full on mountains.

2. 105 degrees in June, July, August and September.

3. 9 year long drought... so far.

4. 6,300,000 unruly neighbors just in my town alone (Utah in comparison has 1.8 mil in the entire STATE).

5. Riding and kayaking buddies have all moved to the full on mountains.

6. Did I mention no full on mountains?

I live in the panhandle near Amarillo. When I need a mountain fix I go over to Red River, new Mexico. I prefer the extra months with heat over freezing my sack off 8 months of the year. Besides, ever other state wants what we have..... a self sufficient, energy supplying , booming economy! Been alot of places but wouldn't call another state home!
