Welcome, although the last thing we need is ANOTHER TEXAN.

I know where New Braunfels is: just outside La Grange.

Welcome. Last time I was in Texas, I think I had some pretty good BBQ in New Braunfels.

You aren’t too far from Hill Country and the FJR makes quick work of most anything else. A certain person on this forum named Pants likes the East Texas national forests as well.

Send us some pictures of your new ride!
I often have found myself when I was not looking, nor did that discovery take place where I thought it would!

1. No one is welcome here. Put on your thick skin if you intend to hang out here. Management here is pretty good though.
2. Not sure why someone would send you here, doesn't sound like someone I'd call a friend for sure.

Glad you made it over here, you'll find we have a few Texans here. Lots of good info and good people, enjoy and be ready for some fantastic ride reports and meet ups. Get ready to start expanding your FJR distance. New Braunfels to Dallas ain't nuttin. :mrgreen:

Watch out for the :bustinlove:

This is funny for sure. I have to wonder if the beginning of the warm season in Texas is giving Mr. Gixxerjasen more opportunity to post as it does for us northerners in the winter! :D

To the rest here it is pig pile time. However in honor of Bust here it could be sheep pile time.

Welcome. If you can make it ride over to EOM this fall. Fun gathering and a good place to meet some of the creepy folks who hang out here.

Except Tyler, she's not creepy.

I tell you, working from home assigned to a project that's been put on hold for a while gives you some free time. However, just this week the green light is illuminating. Bout to be super busy. But I'm sure I'll find a way to keep posting.

I have done several rides that could have been documented for a 1000 mile in 24 hour certificate, but honestly, I ride for pleasure and enjoyment and adding more paperwork and documentation to prove what my odometer and a** already know I have not felt the need to do.

That being said, I would like to go to one of their rallies and see some of the mods they do to prepare their bikes for the rides
