Where about in Rockwall? I'm behind the big Baptist church and Target on the south side of 30

Re: Hello from Rockwall!

Just closed on a new home in Castle Ridge, a few miles north of town, off of 205. Will slowly be moving in over the next month. We have been living in an apartment with the essentials for about a year, while we shopped for the right house. Rest of our belongings are in storage down by the coast. It's been a crazy year for us.
Bike has been collecting dust in the parking garage for months. Will likely have to break out my portable booster to fire it up.

Re: Hello from Rockwall!

Dave, do you have a BMW as well? I talked to a guy at a light the other day that was wearing a hi-viz dual sport helmet. I'm in Heartland (basicly Forney).

No. Just the v strom. Only had it about a month too.

By the way there is a bike and car meet every Wednesday night at the Bucees in Terrell at 7pm. Would love to have some more bikes show up! We started it as a car meet but Ive been trying to get more bikes to come out. We normally get about 20 bikes and about 150-200 cars/trucks.

I know a bunch of nice roads through East Texas and I plan on putting together some group rides for us East Siders.

And just in case you dont know Im riding with 4 other bikes from Greenville TX to Hot Springs Arkansas tomorrow. Check the event part of this site for more info if interested.

Re: Hello from Rockwall!

I've been making some Saturday morning breakfast runs to Kaufman for breakfast burritos. I dragged weekend warrior down there last week in the truck since his street bike is poorly ignored and mistreated.

That said, I have a nice little round about loop that I take. It's nice to get out early, have breakfast and get back home before it starts getting too hot. Been thinking about throwing out an invite if others would be interested. Nothing big, long, twisty, or with crazy speeds, but all off highway and a nice overall ride for some decent inexpensive food. If there's interest I can designate a meet point and time.

Re: Hello from Rockwall!

I could be up for that, Jason, although I think you & I are at opposite ends of the Plex. But yeah, the ride down to Kaufman is pleasant if not exactly exhilarating.

Re: Hello from Rockwall!

I mean, other people could make the ride longer by coming from further, but it'd basically be a Forney to Kaufman via the back roads kind of thing. I'm usually back just in time to start mowing the lawn right in the heat of the day. I can throw up an official thread separate from this one if need be.
