Hi all.

New to your forum. Recently bought a 2016 Bandit 1250 and ended up on this site a lot while doing research on it. Not from Texas but did live in Houston for awhile back in the late 70's. Nice site. Been riding for about 40 years and have had lots of bikes.

Re: Hi all.

Welcome to TWT. You're in the right place - Bandits are one of the more popular bikes on this forum; we have Bandit riding members in places as far flung as New Zealand and Australia.

Just be sure to type slowly so that we can understand your accent. Most of us speak fluent Texan here.

Re: Hi all.

I think tshelfer should have said "most of us speak fluent BS here." not Texan!! It's a great site with a lot of humor. Hope you enjoy it.

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

Re: Hi all.

Welcome from the Southwest contingent. My son just moved back home after 9 years in Sleepy Hollow / White Plains. He got fed up with the snow, but he's not venturing outside very much since it's 111 degrees today.
