Waco area

Hi all. I finally got around to getting another bike after an extended hiatus. I just rode home today on an R1200RT, loved every minute of it.
I am in the Waco area. I am a full time student, full time worker and a full time parent too, I will be trying to sneak off to a pie run or two as I get time. Look forward to meeting some of you around.

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: Waco area

Welcome!
You are in my neck of the woods. I think... I guess... it depends on who was here first as to whose "neck of the woods" it is?

I have a 1200RT and really enjoy it. Have considered a new one, but mine just keeps on ticking doing what it does best.

Enjoy your Beemer - I know you will.

Re: Waco area

I already have been. This is my third BMW and it's like the other two merged together and then improved tenfold (except that side stand).

Re: Waco area

I'm down for pretty much any Sunday, or Fridays during the day. I have a horrible schedule, go to school full time while working nights and raising kids too. But Sunday's and Friday days are usually good haha.

Re: Waco area

Aloha and welcome to TWT. We have tons of BMW riders here you will fit in just fine. Are you planning on doing any motorcycle camping off the BMW? We try to do some meet ups all over Texas for folks to get to know one another. All future posted rides are in the Upcoming ride section in the forum area. Ride safe. KP

Re: Waco area

I have all kinds of plans for two years from now. However I am in college until December of 2018, so I'm limited to riding socially a couple of days a week. I am commuting back and forth from Stephenville every day on the bike so I'm getting my riding fix.

Re: Waco area

Regarding the meetups I am planning on being at the one in Brownwood on Sunday. However again there is a caveat, I am a night shift on call nurse, so if I am out all night I will not be showing up. Hopefully all is sane on Saturday night.

Re: Waco area

Sorry you couldn't make it to Brownwood today. It was a great day for a ride. Saw lots of new (fully paved; the K16 prefers it that way) roads. I'm retired retired so pretty flexible. Give me a buzz sometime and we'll see if we can't get together soon. Are you an MOA member too?

Re: Waco area

I am not an MOA member. I would love to meet up with you and go for a few rides. I work nights and go to college full time. I'm too old for college but it needs to be done. I am usually free on mondays fridays and Sunday mornings. I had my in laws birthday lunch that I had forgotten about today or I would have been in Brownwood. I will pm my info. Feel free to call or text anytime. If I don't answer I'm either working or in class but I'm pretty reliable about returning calls or messages.

Re: Waco area

She needed the miles.

Katy still has the dealer tag and I'm approaching 5K miles.
