Re: Charles Nix(MeterMonkey)

Welcome from central Texas. You picked a good bike for street riding plenty of folks here swear by the Tenere. Are you planning on doing any motorcycle camping? KP

Yes. I have some gear and trying to sort out my load. Havent made a camp trip yet. Had one planned last year and Hurrican Harvey fouled it up. Any excuse to be out doors is good for me(as long as temp is above freezing).

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

We try to camp about 8 times a year all over the state. Make sure to check out the forum area of TWT for all future events in the Upcoming ride area for camping and Texas ride gatherings. We have threads for camping gear also if you are still trying to figure out what to buy. KP

Re: Charles Nix(MeterMonkey)

Yes, welcome Charles from a fellow 14 Tenere owner. Back in the day, did you ever ride out at Swan MX? I see you're not to far from there.

We have a nice event coming up in April you should consider.
http://www.twtex.com/forums/showthread.php?t=115914

Anyway, happy trails sir.

Re: Charles Nix(MeterMonkey)

Welcome from another TWT Tenere rider. Macdaddy's 2014 ST seems much faster than my 2016 ST. It couldn't have anything to do with the rider, could it?

Re: Charles Nix(MeterMonkey)

Im a Tx Panhandle transplant. Only been here about 10 years. I grew up riding at Lake McClellan, Waynoka Ok Sand Dunes, and Eastern New Mexico Off Road.
The trip in April looks like fun. I love the Hill Country.
