I was told about the site by Rob-Houston at Cycle Gear, but couldn't remember the URL. The next time I was at Cylce Gear, I asked Rob the name of the site and in walks Mr TWT himself before Rob could respond. Rob introduces me to Scott who gave me a card with the site URL which I promptly misplaced, but remembered enough of the site name to google it.

I was at a Texas A&M Motorcycle Club meeting at the Taco C here in College Station (maybe a year ago?), and Scott dropped in on the Beemer. :rider:

The rest, as they say, is history!:clap:

I found it from Squeaky on the Int'l Strom forum. Probably Chuck, too.

Remember when you put a TWT business card on every Freakin' bike in the parking lot at the Dallas Cycle World MC Show a few years ago?

Well, one of them was mine. :rider:

:rider: The school teacher guy that I forgot his name again but rides w/ the Miata Guy to the big feeds. I meet him @ brookshire Bros in Huntsburg:eat: rh
:tab That would probably be Pkiser (Phil the Teacher) and JacknTexas (Miata guy).

:tab So how many people have told someone else about the site?

:tab How many of you have a link to it on a personal site or blog site?

:tab We have been averaging about 100 new registrations per month for the last 1-1/2 years or so. Originally, most came because I either chased them down, approached them whenever I saw them somewhere, or as Bud mentioned, the cards at the DFW bike show. My recruiting efforts have slowed down tremendously in the last year or so and yet people keep coming. I was just curious what might be driving that?

:tab Thanks for the kind words from those that liked the place enough to stick around! I know I can't please everyone all the time, but I try ;-)

Well, I know at least a handful of us that still chase people down with TWT cards. It's a conversation starter, means of communication, and a way to "spread the wealth".

Until reading a lot of these posts, I wasn't aware of how many of us heard about it through web searches alone. I was under the impression more of us were sent here by word of mouth.

Howdy,

:tab ... : What's your story?
My name is Hemibee and I'm a dirty bikeaholic..........wait a minute, wrong meeting.

Saw a posting on another website, probably KTMTalk or thumpertalk (it was a weak moment and I was in need of a fix). If I remember correctly, the person was looking for some kinky folks that do strange things like ride motorsickles on the street and he was told to look up Two Wheeled Texans cause those folks were REAL kinky, they rode on the street from pie shop to pie shop. Well I never did look up the website or follow the link I seem to remember was posted there. Several months later I was trying to find the link with no success so I Yahooed or Goggled to find the address.

Ok that's my story and I'm sticking to it.............for now at least.

Success breeds more success. You created a site for people to learn from and to find people who share the same interests. While at the time you set up structure and rules to keep the site that way and not tumble into something else. Thank you for that. :thumb:

The admin & his wife of course. :mrgreen: They got tired of me riding on the back (or rather packing too much stuff). They were very persuasive in suggesting I take the MSF class & get my own bike. :trust: Signed up on the site a month before I did all that -- guess I was optomistic. Going strong ever since then. :rider:

I've got a link on my site, but the hit counts are really low on my site.

I've told few people. I can think of 3 or 4 that have showed up cause I kept pestering them :trust:
