New to twt

Howdy All,

I'll be moving to the NW Houston area by July 2012, relocating from Tulsa, OK for work.

I have one of these:



Used to have one of these until recently:



I had the KLR a few years and grew tired of wrestling the pig around. Sold it and I'll be looking to add a lighter bike to the stable after the move. I'll probably keep the Vulcan since the wife likes to ride with me on it. Anyway hope to meet up and ride with some or all of you when we get settled in.

Later,

Greg

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 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! Tulsa to Houston...Few tornados but..
Seriously, great bunch of TWTer's there. You will get lots of riding in. And the roads have a few more curves than OK.; makes for nice riding. As for a dirt bike, you can meet many riders in the Dualsporting and Offroad riders sections. Sam Houston Nat. Forest is where many people ride locally.

Yup, the DL 1000 "Adventure" models only come in black, in the sunlight it has a slight hint of blue metal flake in the paint. The more I ride it, the more I like it!

Nice bike. However, I will admit, OEM colors on a strom are more like a blank Ghillie suit. Use it to attach your mud, moss and various other bits of nature/travels to make it yours. We have plenty of places in Texas to do so.
