If anybody near DFW or Lawton, OK is looking for a friend. I'm around.

I am 24 years old. I ride around near home, at grapevine lake often. I mess around on a few side roads. But I need more places to go off-roading in/ by DFW. If anybody knows of any places, let me know.

I also ride near lawton, Oklahoma. Its only 2h 30 min from home and it's a great place to spend the day riding. There is the wildlife refuge and the Wichita mountains. I also have a 600 acre ranch, where I go ride and camp any chance I get. (we have a ranch house but camping is more fun). I go hunting there in the winter and ride around in the summer.

As a rider, I am pretty safe because I want keep my $7000 vehicle in tact... But I also like to push myself to get better everyday.

If you want to ride around in DFW or Oklahoma, let me know.

I live 30 miles south of Lawton and have my whole life. I like to get on the county roads and see how far you can get without touching pavment. around lawton very difficult but west and south not so hard and you might be surprised what might get into. Ridding on the Red River is a challenge and should be tackled with caution. On the Texas side of Hwy 79 bridge there is a MC/ATV/UTV put in. Practice picking up your bike if you are not an expert in the sand! LOL. Maybe we can hook up sometime!
