Thumbs up Lurker from Austin, TX

Hi, everyone! I'm from Austin, TX and I have been riding motorcycles for about a year and mopeds for the last 8 years. I have been lurking TWTex for well over the last year and it always seemed like it was full of nice folks. You guys also have one of the best craigslist finds threads around. I figured I would participate a little more and I'm always looking for folks to ride with around the Austin area.

I currently have a 1994 Suzuki GS500e. It gets dogged by my friends, but its been one great bike so far and its dead reliable to say the least.



If you have any info on good meet ups that don't involve a high speed pursuit or someone on a gixxer doing wheelies let me know!

Re: Lurker from Austin, TX

Welcome. Beyond the bragging that we all love to do, most of us are actually pretty docile riders most of the time, particularly on group rides. There are lots of TWTers in the greater Austin area representing all age groups and riding styles from pure track to pure street to pure dirt. Others will be chiming in shortly to point you to some of the local events where you can meet other folks.

Re: Lurker from Austin, TX

Welcome DTW to TWT. IF you are free up next month we are having a gathering in Blanco for BBQ and a visit. Bring the Suzuki and ride on over. These are fantastic way to meet other riders from TWT and maybe make a new riding buddy. Thread below if interested. KP
