Thumbs up Howdy folks!

Happy Days from Matney's Law! I'm new to the site, and dualsporting Texas, but really excited about it. Bought my new PIG a month or so ago, got all the mods sitting in the house ready to change out. So Please hit me with any comments. I work here in Baytown for 2-3 weeks per month and 1-2 weeks at my home in Tennessee per month, so I'm really hoping to find some dualsport minded folks out there near by to ride with evenings and weekends when time and daylight allows, and would be open to scheduling some rides in Tennessee for those interested. i have some land there, but I live about 4 miles from some of the best riding in tennessee. Google Westpoint tn and you'll see what I mean. Anywho, so where do the Honda dual sport folks hang out? And how do I link up with them in the baytown area? I'm in Tennessee for the balance of the month bringing on a new grandbaby, but after I should be in and out around here.

Terry

Re: Howdy folks!

Welcome to the site. There are some folks who meet down in your area on Wednesday night. I know for sure that at least two of them ride XR's and many who enjoy a good dual sport ride. Check them out ->here<- I believe they are meeting at Abe's on Clear Lake Boulevard at 6pm tonight.

Re: Howdy folks!

Nice, I checked it out, and since me and John Wayne do have just one thing in common, and that's that we do tend to favor the gut, That might be the perfect fit! Thanks for the info! Of course on the other hand I just may have to wait until i'm back from TEnnessee and break out my gerbings jacket to keep me thawed!

Re: Howdy folks!

Weird, no luck on the picture Gina, I'll try again in a couple of hours and see if I can get it to come thru. I get an error that tells me that I already posted it in the XR owners forum on TWT. Good news though, I cna tell ya it's on page 502 of that forum. LOL!

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 folks!

Desmog completed on the new XRL, not much difference in power or top end, but sizable difference in throttle response and cold start. It's there when you twist now! Next on the agenda, jetting, airbox and Daves Mod today as time permits! Woohoo!
