I am new to North Texas and just bought a new X3. I would like to find some places to ride. I am especially interested in high speed places as opposed to bumpy trails or rock crawling. I have done a lot of driving on fire roads and find those to be the best.

I’d ride north to connect with the Trans-America Trail in Oklahoma - turn right for West Virginia; left for Oregon .

how long did it take? were places along the way to stay?
I left from Phoenix; went north on the Great Western Trail, then west through Moab, Utah - took three weeks. It was about 3,500 miles.

I camped next to my machine, but there’re LOTS of motels along the way. Finding camping spots gets difficult east of Mississippi - campgrounds tend to be full and require reservations out east.

I found rural cemeteries, abandoned gravel pits, and bridges to camp under, but those felt kinda sketchy.

as for throttle down places i'm not sure. i am the opposite, trails and technical is my thing. if you are north texas, i would think look at new mexico.
i hear a lot of people talk about Little Sahara Dunes in Oklahoma.

Texplex may be something to look into.

Advice on riding places anyone?
I can't think of anything that's all about fast...
But, at Davis just north of you there's the Crossbar Ranch just off I-35 on the west side..Wide open areas, plenty of camping areas, also rocky trails with stream crossings from easy to hard.
We did a Black trail last time and all machines survived. I was worried about someone breaking because you would have to fix it where it broke..no getting pulled out of some areas.
Another place we ride often is "Soggy Bottom" south side of Wanette, Ok ...backs up to the South Canadian River..trails, sand, water, mud, hard pack, all types but no race track.
And like another mentioned, "Little Sahara" at Waynoka, Ok ..acres and acres of dunes and trails, big stuff, little stuff, and it changes every day.
