Re: Klr 650 riders South East Texas

You just missed bike night this evening. We met at the Pizza Shack in Montgomery. I think next week is at the little Mexican place off of 1097 on the East side of I-45. Rico's or something like that. It is in a little shopping center next to a gym. 7:00pm on Thursday.

Anyway, KLRs... I know there are a bunch in the area. I sold mine to another guy here in Huntsville. JacknTexas has one and he is here in Huntsville as well. I have a KTM 530 EXC for dirt doody. I know there are some in the Spring area too...

If you are wanting to get folks together for a ride, just post up a time and place in the Upcoming Rides forum. Sometimes you get no one and sometimes you get a crowd

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

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: Klr 650 riders South East Texas

Yeah i was thinking about coming out tonight, but figured I would miss the debate. I came out ate with you guys at the R/V restaurant in willis. I have been busy lately (bought house, wife is pregnant, and graduated college). I am trying to get back to riding more. I will for sure try to catch up with guys and gals again soon.

You skipped a ride to watch a debate????? You need to be careful about putting things like that in print. Not meaning to be rude to TWT but you can find a lot of additional info on the ADV site also.

James, I don't know about any regular rides. Usually someone just has to decide they want to ride and post up an invite. In the past, I have done that and had anywhere from no one showing up, one person showing up, and sometimes 30-40 people showing up! If you don't want a huge group, you can always just tell folks in the ride invite that it is limited to the first X number of people.

There are some fun roads West of Huntsville, North and South of Hwy 30, all the way over to the Navasota River. Down around Anderson there are also some fun dirt roads. There are also a few fun dirt roads SE of town out near Four Notch Road. The NE side of town is all prison property and even though you might see dirt roads on the maps, most are off limits.

JacobG lives here in town and has my old KLR650. Ouroboros is here in town and rides street and dirt. Woodsguy is here and rides a 650 BMW dualsport. Lastly, ytwtx lives here and has a TW200 he rides in the area. So there are a few DS riders here that you might try to hook up with. I ride a 1200 GS and KTM 530, both on street and dirt. However, my work schedule and family commitments make it hard for me to get away for a good ride very often. When I do, it is usually a spur of the moment thing.

I am in Sugar Land and have a 2009 KLR650 purchased last fall with just 400 miles. If you ever head down this way give me a holler and I will lead you to the beach via some somewhat curvy but flat roads.

Mine has me extremely frustrated right now with a strange problem that I can't seem to pin down so I am not in the mood to talk about it. LOL

I haven't had my bike too long but so far it's not bad for motorcycle riding. We have some good roads around the escarpment... near caprock canyon state park and palo duro park (those areas kinda look like a miniature grand canyon). Otherwise it's pretty flat and mostly farmland. I dont have any complaints... I like the area.

However I do miss east texas and the trees....and lakes..well...standing water in general.
