New to north TEXAS tires and trails
« on: October 11, 2017, 07:57:15 pm »
I am new to north Texas (flower mound) moved here about 3 months ago. New shinko 705's came today and I need to get them installed. Any cheap recommended shops for a tire change (wheels off the bike).

After I get my new tires I would like to take them off the beaten path. Any dirt trails or roads in the area?

Thanks in advance

There are plenty of dirt "white rock" roads to the north and west.  Just open your favorite mapping app and look for the dashed lines.   There are motorcycle offload areas up near the red river, Muenster TX.   Further in OKla you hit red clay.  I have never found any "nice" fire roads in this area.  For that you really need to hit up SE Okla or Ark.

You might make an introduction at Two Wheeled Texans if you haven't. There are a few riders up your way. Thashereg comes to mind, but there are others too.

I have a no-mar tire changer and I'm in Carrollton, not too far from you... PM me and we'll set up a time for you to come by and we'll put the tires on.
