Big bend questions?

I've heard big bend is dirt biking Mecca of Texas. The problem is I know very little about it and not sure how to get good info from a Google search. What are people's experiences there? Can you take a non played dirt bike there? Good camp sites? Any other good info?

Big Bend is pure bliss on a set of knobbies.

I have rode all over the USA on some sort of thumper and let me tell you, BB is in the top 5 places.

You *could* ride out there with a non plated bike, but not without some previous investimigation.

The fines you would get would outweigh the cost of just plating the bike.

What TX says to your non street legal bike.

These are in the Park, there are other place to ride that are as good or better.

TWT will be having the annual Uncle's rally at the end of February:

Good time to go as it won't be 120 during the day and there will be plenty of riders around if you have a problem in the middle of nowhere.
