Just West of DFW

Ya'll know this story: Divorced after 15 years of marriage which stifled my riding, so back to it. I'm 47 and picked up a 2007 DR650SE last weekend, looking forward to a little sight-seeing around the Texas backroads and maybe beyond.

Had too many bikes to list, rode everything from x-country, moto-x to Harleys in the past. Looks like a pretty good bunch here. Sure I'll run across a few TWT members out there sooner or later.

Take care,

Dave.

60 with a Strom, and life is good. Welcome. If you're ever at Craig's Music, you could well run into me haunting their acoustic room.

Re: Just West of DFW

Thanks for the warm welcome fellas.

philipbarret, shoot me a p.m. next time ya'll are headed somewhere. I have not made a trip yet and still in the procurement process as far as gear goes. Got a lot of research to do, not to mention I'm GPS challenged so it would be nice to follow along at first.

CleatusJ, thanks for the tip, I'll check'em out.

tshelfer, may see you at Craigs, picked up a bass there about six months ago, still trying to get the ole' chops back. Played in a Blues band for 10 years back when I was still a pup.

Welcome! My dad lives on the north side of Lake Weatherford. I like to ride out that way...Graford, then north or south from there.

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
