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: new member in garland, tx

hi,
it's a 2002 b12s. just picked it upa couple of weeks ago. been very surprised by the power and comfort. bought from a friend that had scared himself on it, and just wanted out. great luck for me.
the xr650l is a 1997. my brother (a 1994 xr650l), rode them from chicago to santa monica, two years ago. was a great three week excursion on old rt 66.
have ridden gold wings (2), gt647, vfr, ducati, rc51, and quite a few others.
Loved them all.
thanks for the welcome!!!
A.C.

Re: new member in garland, tx

Welcome, 1947 was a very good year. I can vouch for that. Hopefully we can meet some day. The Meet and Greet in North Dallas (actually Plano) on Thursday evenings is a good bunch of riders and a great way to meet some TWTEXer's

Re: new member in garland, tx

Welcome A.C., and congrats on the new bike!!

Alberto mentioned it last night, he said you'd picked-up a "Rebel" I guess he got the main gist of the name but not quite the right model

Re: new member in garland, tx

Hey, A.C., what's a "Golf Wing"?

(didn't think Bandit riders played golf...)

Re: new member in garland, tx

Welcome to the site from another Eastern Metromesser ... just to your south actually. I am in Casa Linda just off the corner of Garland Road and Buckner.

Check out the upcoming Paris to Decatur (TX) Rally in June.

I've got a XR650R that is my current favorite ride. We may be going to ride the Chaparral Trail in a couple of weekends, if the weather cooperates. Watch the Upcoming Rides/Trips forum for information.

Maybe we need to have an East Dallas Burger or Pie Run. Where could we meet?

Re: new member in garland, tx

hey,
a burger or pie run sounds like a lot of fun. i've really been thinking about an xr650r with baja kit for my next project. right now i have my brothers xr650l in the garage, replacing piston and rings in preparation for a trip to big bend in april, and our trip to alaska in june. i am retiring the last of march, closing out my business (snap on tools), so my time is tight until april 1st. should have all parts for the rebuild this week. like to finish it up this weekend.
is jakes burger still open? might be a good place.
glad to see a lot of d/s on this sight.

Re: new member in garland, tx

Big Bend ... one of my favorite pieces of the world.

Snap On Tools ... If you need ANY help cleaning out your truck, I will be MORE than glad to help

Jakes is now Jakks. Mr. Keller had to rename it because of the name conflict when someone else bought Jake's on Abrams and Kellers. The food is still as good. In fact nothing has changed, even the employees are the same.

Well, get past get the L ready and Big Bend and let's hook up. We may be the only two, but who knows.
