Newbie from Nacogdoches, Texas

Hello,

Pentonrider is Ferris Fain and I'm from Nacogdoches, Texas. Charter member of Cycleland Family Park and raced motocross over 40 years ago. Then started racing enduros in the late 70's. Worked at the Penton/Yamaha shop in college and had several Penton's 125's, 175 and 250. Currently have a KTM 200 EXC 2008 and a KTM 450 EXC 2007. Looking to ride DS events and trail rides, no more racing, too slow. Cheers. I do have a website for pictures that I have taken over the years. ferrisfain.com. Enjoy.

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: Newbie from Nacogdoches, Texas

Hay there Ferris !!!!
Glad to see you found the TWT forum.
There is a pretty good group of us that ride DS from Nac. And around east texas. We have been making some rides to Oklahoma and Arkanasas. We don't even try to be as fast as McNight for us it's more about seeing the countryside and doing some camping off the bikes.
I am an old rider also, never messed with the Penton's I was busy keeping my Ossa's Bultaco's Jawa ect. Running.

Hi, Ferris. Good to have you here. Had no idea you were a rider. Hope our paths cross.

Re: Newbie from Nacogdoches, Texas

Welcome Ferris. Many fond memories racing at Cycleland, thanks for the work I'm sure you put in. I've done hundreds of hours of trail work myself. Come ride the East Tex 450 in October with us!
