Texas Riders' Thread V2.0

Ride in Texas? Post here! There's a lot of riders in the state and it's stupid not to get to know each other

Post about group ride dates/areas, good places to ride, bike nights, track days, or any other random stuff we come up with here on GDC!

Make sure to introduce yourself and your ride(s). Feel free to give a little background info. (i.e. "I like to ride track", "into stunting", "hit me up on a sunday for some spirited Hill Country riding", etc)

2008 Hyosung GT250R
2002 Suzuki SV650S

I'll be at the track soon with the SV. I ride daily on my two-fiddy and occasionally a weekend Hill Country ride.

Re: Texas Riders' Thread V2.0

Well - tried to get DoF to sneak me on the list without having to post here - - but he didn't.

I ride North Dallas and Collin County on my K5 750. If you see me and I don't wave I'm probably extremely focused on the road - or I just don't like your kind.

Anyway - If you're in the area (or not TOO far from it) and looking to ride - shoot me a note.

Re: Texas Riders' Thread V2.0

Nothing like callin' me out

I was gonna get you on bro, don't worry! I'd just rather have people post it so that when I run through the list for the next update and thread, I can organize them all at once. Makes it a little easier. As you can see, I put a decent bit of time into organizing the thread.

If y'all want to post what you think of the original post (i.e. Info provided, things you would like to see, was it helpful, etc) I'd like to see it. No point in a thread if it doesn't do what I set out for it to do

Thanks to all!
DoF

Re: Texas Riders' Thread V2.0

Dallas guys, well will be riding around town on sunday if it's not too wet. It's suppose to be nice out. We usually meet up at sonic in lewisville near vista ridge mall. Then we head out from there. The guys that I ride with don't get on here. It's usually 5 of us.

If anyone is down to ride hit me up, pm, email- onefastlude01@yahoo.com or you can shoot me a text at 214-364-3877. Anytime is good with me. I ride daily, rain, shine, sleet or snow so I'm always down to ride.

I'll hopefully be hitting Texas world speedway when it gets warmer. Gotta get some frame sliders, a RC-1 one piece, some race plastics and some race rubber. Then I'm good to go. :-D

Re: Texas Riders' Thread V2.0

Thanks dude..

Well it's up to the guys who show. We can go ride some twisties but it's about a 70 mile ride through the twisties. We usually ride down 35 south up through downtown. Then jump on to 45 then go 75 head north back onto 635 west then north Dallas toll north. Onto George bush south then back to 35 north. Basically a huge circle.

Like I said it's usually up to the guys who show. I don't really care, riding is riding.

Re: Texas Riders' Thread V2.0

I'm sorry you're the only one posting I wish the Southwest Forum had more traffic. I don't think there's ever been much going on in this thread so no one ever comes around... If I was in Dallas I'd come

Re: Texas Riders' Thread V2.0
