Hello from Red Oak

Hello All,
I am new to the dual sport side of motorcycling. I picked up a Ducati Desert Sled back in January and have enjoyed it. I have had sports bikes in the passed and ran out of room to pack all my camping amenities, so I traded up. Below Are a couple Picture from resent trips.
East Tex near Sam Rayburn

Welcome. I can't read the name on the tank. What's the bike?

Re: Hello from Red Oak

Should have guessed. I love the retro tank look. Enjoy. Lots of other nice (and more knowledgeable about Ducatis than me) people will be showing up shortly to introduce themselves.

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: Hello from Red Oak

Welcome. I'm up the road a little at 35-E and I-20. You will possibly see me going by down Ovilla road headed towards Ferris/Ennis one of these days. I'm always hunting for dirt/unpaved roads south of I-20 less than an hour from my house.

Sweet. I'll keep an eye out. Hit me up if you ever want company. Always down to get out and ride around here.

Re: Hello from Red Oak

A scrambler was on my short list for a bit I had a couple of buddies that had them and where always leaving me on the pavement. One of them showed me the sled and that's what I fell for here lol. Waited a year for them to come out and I am glad I waited. Scrambler is fun but that sled loves the dirt and mud.
