New Member Checking in from Spring

Howdy All!

I am moving back to the Houston area after 7 years abroad!

I have had the privilege to ride in Oman and the UAE for 3-1/2 years and then another 3-1/2 years in Europe (Denmark).

I mainly ride Harley's, but I'm not afraid to take them off the blacktop. I am also appreciative of other makes as well and enjoy seeing pics and ride reports.

I suppose if there were three aspects of motorcycling that I love, I would have to say the traveling aspect of seeing new places, the camaraderie of being engaged with other like minded people, and the challenge of working on the mechanical/aesthetics of motorcycles to make it "just right."

I read that we are supposed to post pics of the ride, so I will do one of the old, one just sold, and the one that I pick up in a couple of weeks when I am back!

Is there a bike night in North Houston that anyone knows of?

Welcome to TWTexans. Probably the group closet to you is the Montgomery group. There are folks from Huntsville who come down to join in as well. Drop by if you get the chance.

There is also a group in Atascocita who meet up occasionally.

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
