For those who haven’t been. Fuego burger was great. Very small seating area but large on flavor.

Sorry that’s a photo off Facebook but y’all get the picture.

P.s. it’s definitely worth doing again next week.

That was one good burger. I am glad we went there to try it out. Next time I am going to have to try some of the other things on their menu.

Hey all, it's been a long time since we've met. How about an Arlington Saturday morning meetup?

A new coffee house opened in downtown Arlington, Urban Alchemy. Some motorcyclists from various FaceBook groups are meeting there from 9-12 on Saturday mornings.

I plan to be there this Sat. if anybody wants to come.

Just found out I have a conflict Saturday morning; I'll be leading a men's devotional from 9:30 to 10. Depending on what time you choose, I can either show up late (probably 10:15) and join in progress, or wish you guys a good time and try again next time.

I'm guessing it would be for Saturday, the 17th. I will try to make that. I work nights during the week so I am only able to do stuff on Thurs, Fri and Sat. Most of the meets seem to be on days I have to to work.

I'm riding a NC700X with a Shinko 705 rear tire. I'd be happy to ride sometime. I'm mostly on the street because there isn't a whole lot else around me. But I'll ride anywhere.

We had a great time this morning, although it was cold and rainy. My Frogg Toggs kept me pretty dry. Glad to meet you Jeremy; hopefully you'll be on the bike next time.

Same time and same place next Saturday 2/24. There is talk of riding over to Eurosport after coffee, to check out the electric motorcycles.

There were Jeremy and I from TWT, and 3 guys from Dallas Bike Night/Third Shift Moto. 3 of us rode our bikes; wet, cold, but a beautiful afternoon.

Anyone got ideas for a meet/eat this coming Sat? (4/28/18)

Weather looks like it should be nice. Post #602 for Fuego Burger in Rendon might be good. Looking at google's street view, it looks like parking is pretty limited. Anyone know if you can park across the street in the gravel on the shoulder?

As far as I know, I'm open for Saturday. I'd have to four-wheel it, as my bike will be at Monkey Wrench for some last-minute maintenance items before I head off to AZ in early May. Are you thinking breakfast, lunch, or brunch?

There's a little gravel area just the other side of Scoot Dog's place that bikes get parked in a lot. Scoot Dog serve's as clothier for the discerning cruiser rider and specializes in micro miniature DOT approved helmets for those that like that kind of thing. He's actually a nice guy, just not my kinda gear.

Just checked Fuego Burger on Google Maps. Looks like it's only a couple of blocks from Jambo's, where this group has met a couple of times previously.

Howdy All,

I'm still around watching this thread and others. These days I have to "pick & choose" what I attend, what with family and other obligations.

It looks like weather is getting better rather than all that yucky cold/wet stuff.

Remember, anyone can set up and host an event here. This thread was started with the mindset of a one-stop place for TWTexans living south of the DFW Metroplex to plan and get together. But anyone is free to join in.

If you have an idea of a place to eat or a ride, post it up and see who wants to join in.

I'll keep watching and join y'all when I can.

I think I am going to try and hit "Jalapenos Lemon Pepper" in Midlothian on Saturday about noon. I stumbled onto it on google maps. There's a link to the menu on Facebook from the google info listing.

oh ya. After I eat, I plan on trying to hit some back country roads (hopefully dirt/gravel) down near Itasca, Carl's Corner and Plum Grove.

Aw man, I wish you'd posted this earlier. I just committed to go to the guitar show with a buddy. Can't let your music buddies down, you know.

How'd it go?
Had fun. I decided because of the recent rain to not be too adventurous just in case I got in trouble. I went around Maypearl hitting Greathouse Rd and a few others. I did find that water crossing you messaged me about, but it was moving pretty quick and at least 6 inches deep so I turned around. Lo Water Rd and Witten were very nice.

Jalapenos Lemon Pepper was okay, but nothing special. I'm thinking of hitting "Branded Burger Co." that's just around the corner (about 2 blocks away) from Jalapenos this coming Saturday (5/12/18) about noon as well.

Sounds like you rode right by my house.

I definitely want to ride somewhere Saturday, but I've got to start earlier.

Our band has a gig at 6pm that night, so I need to get done earlier.

Jarrett, you are going to get me in trouble man. Just read your PM about the roads near Mertens, TX.Now I want to go there instead.

Even found Mama's Place on Google with pretty good reviews (405 W Moseley, Italy, TX 76651) that's in that area. Might be a good spot for breakfast and then a morning ride.

Wray Rd looked pretty much like this. I had no idea if I was going to make it to the other end :)

I really want to ride and explore some roads like Wray Rd on my Dual Sport.
I just don't know where to go look.

If y'all put something together tomorrow, the 12th, I'd like to tag along.
Breakfast in Midlothian? Back roads ride and lunch "wherever"?

Suggestions?

I just ran across this thread http://www.twtex.com/forums/showthread.php?t=117403

There are lots of roads to explore South of the Metroplex. They are using "Ride With GPS" and there are some really cool looking routes posted.

I'll post up whichever route I plan on doing and if anyone wants to go just let me know. I like to cruise along and sight-see, stopping off to take pictures. My goal is Exploring new places.

South O' the Plex - Meet & Eat

I’m free Saturday during the day. Was gonna use that time to put a set of new tires on (nothings wrong with the ones I’ve got on just want more of a street tire for now) but if there’s some people going out I’d like to use that last little bit before changing em

I could be talked into a lunch run.

But I'm not going anywhere near the metro-mess on Memorial Day weekend.

Works for me. Let's see if we can get some others on board. But for that menu, I'll be there no matter what. Just would like to have some company.

The Country Store is located on the west service road of I-35W between Exits' 17 & 21 at the cross street of CR 106 (no exit).

They are supposed to be moving sometime in the near future to downtown Itasca approximately one block east of the main traffic light located at Hwy 81 and FM 66 near the bank.

What a unique place to eat. Perfect for when you're out riding around. I'll be dreaming about all the fun you're having while I'm sleeping in between 12 hours shifts.
