Howdy! Dallasite here

Hello Ladies and Gents,

Names Cory, New to the site, so I thought I should do the intro thingamabob.


I'm 34, 6-3 220, enjoy long walks on the beach, a nice dinner...

oh wait.. wrong profile...


I just picked up a 01- Kawasaki KZ1000P with 78000 miles on the odo. Runs great. Needs a tiny bit of TLC but nothing thats keeping me off of it. Needs a set of tires, but meh...

Its a fun ride, plenty of power and for some odd reason not too many people like to pass me on the highway.. i wonder why...

I dont ride very much right now, i'm not technically legal in that I dont have the M endorsement anymore, but its coming back soon enough.


but thats about it from me, hope ya'll are having a good day!


Cory

Re: Howdy! Dallasite here

I am a bit north of Dallas in the McKinney area, let me know if you need help with anything electrical or mechanical on the bike. I have a well stocked garage and am always ready to help any TWTer.. Welcome to the club, they are a really great bunch on here!!

Re: Howdy! Dallasite here

Appreciate the offer. I'm gonna have to get some of the basic stuff done around the deep Ellum area first (it's where I keep the motor) I don't really trust the old tires on the highway. Really squirrelly above 50mph.

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

Re: Howdy! Dallasite here

Looks like a bike my step dad (Onecan) brought back from Ft. Worth years ago. It was sleeting for the return trip so he wrapped his legs in garbage bags. It took a long time to get the melted plastic off the bike! Welcome.

Re: Howdy! Dallasite here

Welcome. You are not PC and hate nuthugger jeans? Oh the humanity......

I work downtown and frequent Angry Dog on occasion. I also frequent Tommy's Terrific Car Wash on Ross a couple times a week. PM me if you want to meet to talk about cycles and non PC stuff.

I did Avation Life Support on C-130s while I was in the Marine Corps. Loved every second I got to work on that aircraft. Took me all over the world. Low and slow.
