Keep shooting down 720 towards the LLTB and you'll run right past my "subdivision".

Yup, cross that bridge every day I go to work. Man, if we're living this close together the only logical thing to do is go for a ride. Know of any good places round here?

Nothing that wouldn't get us in trouble or run the risk of running over some kid trying to go fishing. I know back behind my place there are some wooded areas and trails that lead out onto the lake. I haven't explored it much on the bike but have on foot. There is lots of potential. Problem is I'm not sure if it's private land, or public. Being that this IS texas I would say that it's private, but it's not marked.

Sounds like it should be fun. I'm gonna go tear it up in the back yard this weekend, should be fun with all the rain we had, and see if I get into trouble. If not I'll consider it good to go. If I remember correctly some of that land may actually belong to The Army Corp of Engineers, that means public right.

As long as there are no signs or purple paint then your good. I think with it being a park, there should be good signage out there. Guess i'll find out... Maybe Monday or Tuesday on my days off. This weekend is my sons 1 year old party, so the wife will kill me if I'm not home to help her clean the house...

I was wearing a pair of jeans and black & white tourmaster jacket along with a backpack. My bike is red (burgundy) and black though. Could have been me?

Might have been, was @330 pm give or take. Remember the fairing around the headlight was red, I think the rest of the bike was black. I do believe the rider had a backpack and the jacket was more black iirc...

Couldent miss me today, high vis green jacket, head light modulator, black and grey helmit, strip of white LED lights vertical along the lower fairing just behind the front wheel, and amber LEDs on the mirrors. Oh, I was riding my 09 concours14

At that time it most definitely wasn't me. I don't roll through until about 5:45 to 6 o'clock.

Nobody should reply to this because today is one of the most beautiful days of the year so far and you should be out making a mess of things. End of the work day can't come soon enough.

Went and played for a minute on the trails behind my house, it's still pretty sloppy from last weeks rain. Dropped the bike once making a rookie move on some greasy mud and then once again going through a puddle gradually. Learned this is where you need to grab a fistful to get through.

Perfectly beautiful Sunday ride with no particular destination in mind. Riding an old back country road just off the lake and I saw some dirt roads, and I think I get to do some trail riding. Rolled up on the gate and this sign is there.

Shit...

No kidding. Made it up to your neck of the woods today there's allot of nice pavement. Can you trail ride at the Ray Roberts Park over there?

Dunno, haven't found any up there. All the trails I have found are for bicycles and pedestrians only

Hi, I am in Lewisville and I ride around town, sometimes up your way. Don't ride to much my hands go numb quickly, but I drink beer!
