New in Town

Hello all! I am WingWoman's daughter and Darmie's stepdaughter. I moved to the Houston area about 2.5 weeks ago and I already know I love it here. I found this group through my mom and stepfather and have found you all to be extremely kind and welcoming. I do not have a bike of my own yet but I would love to learn how to ride and have my own bike someday. As you can see from my username, I already know what I want. :P I'm looking forward to meeting and getting to know everyone.

Re: New in Town

Welcome to the site!

Don't get your dream bike as your first bike. Get a reliable beater that you don't have to worry about scuffing. Then once you get that out of your system and feel more confident, get your dream bike

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: New in Town

to the TWT Family,

Hope to meet you sometime soon. Good luck on the bike search. This is a wonderful place if you have questions about a certain bike, learning to ride, help with mechanical issues, etc.

He knows what he is talking about here. I'm so glad that Scott convinced me to get a naked bike to start off with.

Re: New in Town

You said new to town. If you're not used to traffic like we have I would suggest getting acclimated before you jump out there on 2 wheels. Weekend stuff is one thing, weekday stuff could be overwhelming for someone new to this level of traffic.

Offering up someone elses CR500 for a novice is one heck of an offer! I haven't touched one yet, but I can only imagine how insane a CR500... maybe he meant CBR500?

Re: New in Town

thebigman, my bike instructor (Rydah) and I will be taking you up on your very generous offer. Please let me know when you're ready and we'll come pick it up. Thank you again.

As to the offer of one of JBird's dirt bikes, Rydah has talked me out of that-for now. :P
