Howdy fellow Texans. Dave here just signing up and excited to be a part of the forum community.
My main rides are a 2016 BMW R1200 GSA and 2014 KTM 250XC. I did just pick up a sweet little number for an upcoming group ride. The new thoroughbred for the stable is a 2008 Yamaha TW200! The ride is the Shadow of the Rockies trail.
The fellas and I decided we would take smaller fun bikes for this one and let the big boy adventure bikes sit this one out and have a rest.
Interested in reading some ride reports on this and possible future trips. Lots of planning to be done, which I hope ya'll will be able to provide some valuable input on.

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

Welcome to the site, check out the Clear Lake get together each Wednesday night. A few like minded dirt or Enduro riders in that group, but all good people.

Re: New Member from Houston, TX

Missed you at Chuy's Wednesday. It didn't dawn on anyone that you might have been confused as most everyone drove and we got seated in the very back. Hope to see you next Wednesday. There are several of us that get together for a Tuesday breakfast also. Location varies and is up in Houston at times. If you have the opportunity, check for the Tuesday breakfast in "Upcoming Rides". Be warned, it may be as late as Monday evening before anyone posts.

Re: New Member from Houston, TX

By the time I was able to juke-move, stiff-arm and side-step my way out of the office it was 7p and my daughter absolutely refused to jump on the back of a bike after the rain and with her old man at the helm. Never crossed my mind to drive an enclosed vehicle there.
I'll try to be front and center for the next gathering.
