Just moved to Houston with my KLR

Hello everyone,

I'm Erick Prevost, 22, and I just moved to League City for a new job in Houston. I have a 2007 KLR that takes me everywhere. I have been without a car for two years, so I ride in any weather and on all the roads

I would like to meet with other people around here. I see another dual sport motorcycle from time to time, but never was able to talk to the rider.

Hope to see some of y'all on the road

GOD bless, ride safe

Re: Just moved to Houston with my KLR

Welcome to the site!

Most of the fun riding is going to be North of Houston. I hope you like sand... East Texas has a LOT of sand As you go West of I-45, you get more rocks/gravel.

I think there is a semi regular bike night in League City/Clear Lake...

and here is a breakfast meet,

http://twtex.com/forums/showthread.php?t=67394

I think quite a few of the people that attend both are dualsport riders.

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)

"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: Just moved to Houston with my KLR

Welcome to TWT. You'll find pretty much year around riding weather in Houston, as long as you don't mind the humidity and an occasional hurricane.

Re: Just moved to Houston with my KLR

Welcome to TWT from central Texas! I've been on other motorcycle forums but this one is the best. Unfortunately we have already hit the limit for KLR bikes so you're going to have to be put on the waiting list and hope some KLR's move out of Texas. I'm just kiddin'!!! I don't have a KLR but something similar and the Suzuki is my favorite bike to ride every day. Stick around, you'll find local people to ride with and if you have weekends available check out the pie runs and the meet & greet & eat gatherings.

Re: Just moved to Houston with my KLR

Since you live in League City you should hook up with the fine fellows in the Clear Lake Bike Night thread. Ride safe.
