New to the forum, live Rockport Tx most of the time other part Bastrop Tx. Have been riding motorcycles 45 year, just turn 72 yesterday still going strong. I grew up stock racing with my dad here in Tx. I have had to many motorcycles to count. I have a 2014 FJR1300A Candy Red, and just picked up my new toy a 2017 Africa Twin adventure bike. I have a some friends into the off road riding, going to join them. Down my way we can go riding.

Re: new guy


I also have an Africa Twin and my family has been spending time in Rockport since 1967. Great place. Still miss Duck Inn and Sea Gun. My daughter and I were just down there in the RV at Goose Island SP a couple of months back.

I've ridden all over down there on bicycles. All around Rockport/Fulton and Holiday Beach. Also did that Conquer the Coast ride out of Corpus Christi that follows a 67 mile route through Ingleside, Aransas Pass, Port Aransas, Mustang Island through the Naval Base and back to CC, but I haven't ridden a motorcycle down there yet.

If I do make it down there with the scooter, I'll certainly look you up.
