Dr. Baker, where do you live? Crosstimbers is a great place for beginners like your son to learn.
We are in Moore. We started off in the backyard to get the basics. On day 2 we went to Crosstimbers and he rode the little beginners loop toward the SE corner. I'm not familiar with The whole place. Are there other areas in Crosstimbers for a beginner? I didn't bring my bike so I didn't have a good way to look around.
Do people still ride on the Oklahoma River? I can't remember seeing anyone out there in a long time.
There is a beginner loop of maybe 2 miles off of the green trail. I would be happy to show it to you sometime. It is now illegal to ride in the river.

I bought my wife a new DRZ 400sm about a yr and a half ago. I took my bike and hers with me this spring down to the Texas Hill Country to do some riding. I ride a Triumph Tiger 1050 which is a great bike for the hill country roads, but the little Suzuki just carved the tight twisties as well as anything there. It only had about 200 miles on it when I took it with me and I returned with about 450 miles. I changed the oil, and broke it in pretty good the last 200 miles. Did some 75 mph highway riding and it did great. The power is more than adequate for what it is, and although comfort could be improved for longer rides, it's a blast to get on and hit some good twisties.
But it's in my exercise room/den, not the garage. Guess that's better than the living room, where I keep my 71 and 2010 Tigers.
