Finally decided to try a motorcycle again after some 30 plus years. Bought a KLR and have been slowly building it out and relearning to ride a motorcycle again. I live between Dickinson and Alvin, TX. Now that I have got a little time in saddle I thought I would see who and what kind of riding is out there. I signed up for the Hill Country Ride this coming weekend. Saw that it should be good for beginners and I have hunted and ridden near Fredericksburg so thought I’d take a first step into some group riding.

Welcome. Long time since Daktari was on the tube. But I watched it. This is a great place to start or restart. Lots of folks will help and try to keep you safe. Enjoy your ride this weekend.

Welcome back to riding. There are a lot of us retreads out there, who gave up the sport in our child raising years and are back to it now that we're at or near retirement. Don't stress too much about relearning; just take it slow and stay within your skills, and you'll be fine. It all comes back to you. It's like -- well, riding a bike.

Welcome from central Texas. We have a bunch of members with KLRs here at TWT. Looks like you are all set up to camp off the Kawasaki. We do that here weather permitting. Ride safe. KP

I worked in Africa for about 5 years. At one point came back to the US to do some special training and had a group of Navy Pilots in the same class. Since I was living in Northern Kenya at the time, in basically a hut, they determined that my Call Sign should be “DakTari”.

We usually meet up around 8:00 am. When you walk in the door, turn right and head for the back wall. Look for motorcycle gear :rider:

Cool story, and I bet there's more to that story as well. :trust:

Thanks for the support and encouragement. Looking forward to the weekend and trying something new. I have been riding alone for the past two years. Did have a great ride on my brothers BMW in Wyoming this past May.
