Hello form Tyler!

I just thought I'd say Hi to everyone here, and see if there's anyone else here in the Tyler area.

My DS isn't ready right now, so I have to make due with my GL1000!

This is the kind of roads I take the Gold Wing on!

There are a few nice places to ride around here, but you have to look for them!

For you East Texas guys looking to meet some other folks, check out this ongoing thread for meet/greets. It is a mix of street and DS riders.

I'm Gabriel from Houston. Just got back into biking after a long, too long hiatus. Sharpstown or SW Houston to be exact. Bought an 07 1200 GS through this website from a fellow inmate up in Maine and had my baby shipped down here. Getting used to riding longer distances. Looking to learn and ride! "Let's roll!"

I just relocated to Houston from South Mississippi. I live in Katy (cinco ranch) and ride a F800GS. Anytime yall want to ride just let me know. I know it's hot right now, but the cooler weather should be just around the corner. Even if we don't get to ride it would be nice to meet a few peeps in the area. I lived and worked here before, but only on a temporary basis. This time I'm here permanently. I have to start learning the roads and getting out of the traffic jam. I've only been moved into my new home for about three weeks and last weekend I drove to MS and picked up my bike and brought it back. I'm just about 100% settled so I'm ready to ride a little.

If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there.

I'm in Arlington. Don't know a single person here that rides DS bikes. I have a WR250X. Found this link on the web so thinking about doing it to meet up with others. Would like to hit some closer unpaved roads though. Please let me know of rides going on.

Clayton-10th Annual AdvRiderMag Dual Sport Ride October 13-16 in Oklahoma

November 10-14 is the Texas Tenere Big Bend Trip. All bikes are welcome and I want to check that bike out.
