    West Texas Riders?

    I might be moving to Abilene Texas for a job offer. Are there any places to ride around there? I'm use to riding at Lake st.clair but I don't see any lakes in the Abilene area. Does everyone just take a ride over to the Dallas area to hit the water or do they make the journey to the ocean?

    We got Lake Fort Phantom just a few miles north of the city of Abilene and it's OK. Been there about hundred times, water can look alittle brown due to the red clay when it gets windy. But I like to head south to Coleman and ride at Hords Creek about 1 hour away.

    It's really a small, and I mean small lake but on the weekdays you can have the lake to yourself which is great for pulling a tube and they have camp site's too.

    Breckenridge has a big lake about an hour drive east and then Possum Kingdom is about 30 mins more away. Possum has alot of rich boats out there and there's one place where they all hang out. Forget the name, maybe devil's gate ?? With all the boat traffic the waves can get big.

    Got a nice lake down at Brownwood but the Game warden's like to pull you over for a safety check alot.

    See you when you get here

    PS. if you see a red GSXL setting the water on fire that will be me

    If you go to Dallas I would stay away from Grapevine Lake. It's basically oval shaped and gets rough plus the water will give you a sinus infection from hell.
    Went skiing there a few times and something in that water is nasty.

    Sounds good, I hope to catch up with you guys someday. I ended up selling my 96 HX and 99 Gsxl. All I have left is my kawi 550, I'm bringing it with me.
