I was concerned a lack of activity on this heading could be misconstrued. Am not in a position to speak for the true 'deep South' as I am only 20 miles from Missouri and a 22 year transplant at that.
I think they're just too busy riding in this fine fall weather to post.

Riding in South Texas

We were thinking about spending the winter in south Texas. I was wondering if someone can tell me where the good dual sport riding down that way is. We are looking at Edinburg, Texas.

Good luck getting Texas riders to speak up Mntman. They are no where to be found. I think they all moved to Ohio. I'm goin to Texas just to see for myself. Bet I don't find any KLR types anywhere.

jwd1342i am a n.f.g with a 13,000 mile 650 isthe doo really that nessary.
Depends on where you saftey comfort level is.
Is the doo a problem? YES about 1/3 are bad.
Will it harm my bike if I don't change it? It could, one of the guys here had his motor lock up after a fall. The broken peice of the doo lodged in the cam chain (I think it was the chain).
The new part costs about $40, and take a couple hours to change.

If you do a search on the doo, you can find all the threads that explain everything I say and how to fix it.

Am I the first one from TX? For those visiting TX, there is plenty of good riding just depending on what your style preference is. The KLR is so versatile. I prefer hilly, twisty, soft dirt roads ... most of that is to be found around San Antonio, but there are other places. If you want more specifics, I will be glad to provide what I know.

There are lot of roads, fire and otherwise to ride, BUT NOT AT THIS TIME OF YEAR. PEOPLE HAVE A TENDANCY TO SHOOT AT ANYTHING MOVING RAPIDLY THRU THE WOODS DURING DEER SEASON. People in this area are very serious about killing deer. County roads blocked off to protect deer stands right beside road, and I mean right beside road. Warehouser land, when they cut the trees they leased the land. Had roads closed while logging, turnstiles still in place so hunters just lock the gate. Ask Garland County judge about it this summer, still waiting on answer, no one gets in any hurry, when it comes to messing with deer hunting. Bad enough in Little Rock, Prosecuting and Defense attorneys asked judge for dates out of deer season last year. Even justice takes a back seat to deer hunting.

Texas $.02 worth of info.... Just participated in TAR last weekend... Texas Adventure Ride in and around Junction TX. 225 bikes and riders, probably half of them on KLRs. Great area, on the edge of the hill country. On Saturday I rode the three sisters (twisty blacktop ribbons) along with miles of gravel and dirt county roads from tame to wild. Water crossings of many sizes and swiftness were enjoyed by the riders. Will be going back to explore more roads when there are not quite as many folks buzzing around. It is now my second favorite part of TX to ride, right behind the deserts and mountains of Big Bend.
