Howdy!

I finally joined TWT after recently coming across the site. I graduated from college in May and moved to Houston for work.

I currently drive a 2001 Yamaha VMAX. It's a bit dinged up from previous owners but runs strong. I do a bit of riding west of Brookshire when I'm able to.

My previous ride was a 2002 KLR650 in college.

I plan on trying to meet up with the Katy group out at the Empenada house sometime.

Re: New Member from West Houston Area

Aloha and welcome to TWT. A pre-dinged bike is fine. Cory check out the upcoming ride forum for rides and meets in your area as well as all over Texas. TWT has a pie run every month and there are local events as well as ride to eat and meet and greets. Come sign up and do one. Good chance to meet people in Texas that are the TWT family. KP

Welcome to the site!

There are a mess load of dual sport riders here on TWT, especially KLR riders. Don't be surprised if you start getting an itch to add one back your stable

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
