Thumbs up Back to getting dirty!

I moved to San Antonio about 6 1/2 years ago. I have been riding (off and on) since I was 13 years old. I started by riding the foothills of the Angeles Crest mountains on an XR75 in the early '70's and later rode a Honda 125 street bike and Kawasaki KZ750.

After a long hiatus from riding (I had a few close calls with inattentive LA drivers in cars) I started riding again in the foothills of the San Bernardino mountains on a KTM 640 Adventure. It was a great way to get back into riding and allowed me to cut my teeth (again) on dirt and street riding again. It got to the point I was riding mostly street bike I had also acquired and decided to sell the KTM when I still lived in California. I have been riding Harleys (with the temporary addition of a Big Dog Mastiff) since.

Well a couple of weeks ago I plunged back in to dual sport and adventure riding with the purchase of a KTM Super Adventure 1290 (can't go wrong with those two words in the name). And so, here I am. I'm looking forward to riding the Texas Hill Country and elsewhere with you.

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!

"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

Re: Back to getting dirty!


There is a monthly dual sport ride happening this weekend that might interest you. This month's route is all pavement, but would be a good orientation to the area.

To make the early morning start in Austin, some of us are camping here.

And/Or next weekend, (jun11) you could do a long distance ride on the HD (do you still have it?) to this meet and greet:

we need pix of your ride(s)!


'09 Suzi DL650 (Quite possibly the best bike for me)
'00 Yami TTR250m (Dirty Sally)
'12 KTM 690 Enduro (O Orange One/ "3 Oh")

Dos Semanas En Mexico - Oct2017

Mexico Paved - Oct2015

A Week in New Mexico - Oct2014
