Hi Y'all

Howdy one and all. I'm dan, from the pearl of south west central Texas. Just got back into the larger street bikes a week or so ago. Look forward to swapping lies and riding with y'all

Good to have you here, Dan!

A bunch of us passed through Brackettville a couple of weeks ago on our return ride from Big Bend. I've never seen everything so lush and green in those parts before; you must have had a mild, wet winter.

Hi Paul,
Mucho gusto! Pretty mild winter, yes. Not much rain, though. I really want to make the ride to Big Bend. Not much traffic on US90 out that way and really pretty.

Heck, looking at my map, you're already more than halfway there!

US90 is too straight to provide much fun riding, but the sublime beauty of the desert scenery makes up for it.

There are some great gravel roads out there! I hear you really have to watch for the deer though...

Welcome to the site Dan!

Adios,

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

Quote:
"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Hi Scott,
Thanks for the welcome. Yep, anytime right before and all dark hours are perilous here in ESWCT. Several aquaintences have either disintigrated the deer or their bikes. Luckily no fatalities, tho (only the pesky (pesty?) deer).
I almost nailed one the other day, one ran across the road and another followed. Being charitable and cautious (and instinct said Bambi was following) I slowed down enough for the first so I didn't split Bambi. Definately the five point grip, though.
