    Hey anyone know who politely drives a dark grey or light black dodge truck up Toll 130 at 5:00 with an ADV sticker on the right rear windshield? Passed me today, and it was the first ADV sticker I'd ever seen on a 4 wheel vehicle. Good for him for saying hello!

    Hola Guys, newish to the forum, and new to adv bikes... I'm just south of Austin and don't know many riders in the area, so if anyone has any suggestions for meets/sites/groups etc I'd be much obliged!

    There are several ADV guys and gals in the Austin area. There is a meet and greet coming up.

    Awesome! Thanks for that. I just joined the Group, but can't reply to the thread yet. I'll be down for riding and lunch for sure, and maybe camping. Gotta make sure I can get away Saturday.

    Just checking in.

    I'm not dead and my head is finally getting above the high water mark again. Mostly in part to a new job and the twins getting old enough to pee in a bucket.

    I'm about to replace my Arai xd4 due to age and almost daily use. I'm thinking about the Scorpion modular DS helmet. https://www.motorcyclehouse.com/scorpion-exo-at950-dual-sport-helmet

    Any recommendations? Thoughts on the Scorpion?

    I've been looking at the Scorpion too. All the features I want. Mod's the way to go. I have a street one but really need a bill.

    Finally got a chance to ride over the holiday but ended up mostly swimming. Go figure. It was HOT!

    If you ride on the slimy stuff much, you're going swimming whether you want to or not. :dirtdog

    I'll try to work on some art ideas. I should also be able to be there. I'll save the date.

    Is there a tag line for this one?
