Hello from Rockwall!

Hello everyone, I've been lurking on the forums for a couple of weeks now and now I registered. There's a lot of knowledge here and I look forward to using it and adding my own. I am an aircraft mechanic by trade and I also currently serve in the Texas Army National Guard as a helicopter mechanic, specifically CH-47s. I ride a SV-650S and a VSTAR 650. I'm currently trying to sell the SV and get into something adventure touring that's more comfortable. Thanks for having me, I hope to meet some people in one of the events.

Re: Hello from Rockwall!

This is my SV obviously, and one of our Chinook's flying old glory off of her aft rotor.

Re: Hello from Rockwall!

Welcome. I'm in Greenville. Prior service Marine where I was an aircraft mechanic for 13 years. Worked on CH-53s, C-130s, and V-22s. Keep those rotors turning.

Got any specific ADV bike in mind?

Re: Hello from Rockwall!

Welcome fellow Rockwallian! I'm in Heath. Rides are an '09 Multistrada and '14 KTM 350 EXC that miraculously survived complete coolant loss while racing the weekend.

The area east of DFW is lightly represented on TWT so glad to have your attendance. Lots of fun rural routes east of Rockwall if you're new to the area.

Re: Hello from Rockwall!

Based on this thread it seems we might have enough over here for an east side meet and eat and greet.

Re: Hello from Rockwall!

You're in the right place for sure. Check the boards & there are at least a couple of VStroms, and maybe a Beemer and a Tenere for sale right now. Welcome to TWT.

Hard to beat the DL650. It can tackle nearly anything in Texas. But I'm a little biased lol

Welcome! I see several Chinooks flying around in Kurdistan where I work. Almost always escorted by a couple of Blackhawks ... it is a very reassuring sight!

We moved to Rockwall over the past year. Still settling in. Haven't had a chance to ride in a long time.
