Thanks MacDaddy... believe it or not, 2WheelNut and I have been riding together for the past 33 years. We both had Yamaha QT50's (Yamahopper's) when we were 15 years old and we tore up Arlington on 2 wheels at 35mph!

Welcome to TWT. Nice group of bikes in the pics. Do you camp off the wing? We do that here every so often. KP

Kind of... At the time that pic was taken, I was flying under the American tail as American Eagle. I fly for a Regional carrier and we are basically sub-contractors for the main airlines to fly their shorter regional routes. If you've flown out of DFW, chances are you've been on one of our flights and thought it was just a plane ol' American flight. I'm now flying for United.

Thanks! Friendly group so far... 2WheelNut was really wrong about you guys.

I have camped in the past... been a while, and haven't taken the new girl out yet on a camping trip. Hate Texas summers, so unless it's camping in cool Colorado, I don't plan on it unless it's spring or fall here.

Me and 2WheelNut camping near Leadville, CO, a few years ago:

Re: GLFLyer's Introduction - DFW (PICS!) ;)

Holy cow...I'm missing this entire thread.

Bob and I met in 8th grade. Been best friends and doing stuff together ever since.

He even introduced me to my wife.

He's a bit over the top on introductions though....

Probably the best intro post I've ever seen. Welcome aboard from Greenville.

Thank you sir...

2WheelNut told me I was a bit over the top... well, yeah. Just wanted to make a good impression since he was the one who referred me.

First TWT ride is tomorrow for a Father's Day ride to breakfast at the Smokestack.

Thanks Mitch, and thanks for giving me the opportunity to get my wing a bit dirty today.

For everyone else... I did my first TWT ride today with some pretty cool folks... had a great time!
