Pete gave us a place where we can talk our own brand of b.s. - no interpretation needed.  Post up.... good roads, Aggie jokes, recommended choke-n-pukes, what ever rotates your spurs.

If you are ever in the Grand Saline area be sure to check out the Saline Soda Shop.  Great big juicy burgers and old fashion malts at their finest.  About 15 riders (two from this board) showed up there last Saturday and had lunch and some great riding!!   :motorsmile:

Wow!  Cool place...   :banana:

Thanks Pete for setting this forum up....   :thanks:  

Now we need gtbandit (Craig), Vee Dub Nut, many other "bandits" in TX.  

Might as well make an announcement....

Some of us bandit guys/gals are riding on April 16 and 17 in NE Texas.  Post-up if you're interested.

Postin Up!
May be interested in a a ride  in NE Texas later in the summer (as i have nothing to ride right now).  I ride with a few people that come in from Houston, and we normally ride North of here.  Sometimes into Arkansas.  Please post any ride in the future.  Thanks.

Dave, I'm not sure I'll be able to get off from my second job yet, but I'm going to try to make it. I have to be back at work Sunday morning at the FD, but if I can, I'll ride up there Fri. evening and return home Sat. afternoon after lunch.

I'm planning a fall ride in Arkansas if any of you other Texans are interested. There are a few members from Max-Zuke that are planning to make it (most of whom Dave and I can vouch for) and a couple from this board. I will be re-posting the thread on here again soon.

I'm in on the Arkansas ride for sure, so long as my work schedule does not conflict.  Sept 11-15 and October 1-2 are bad for me, so far.

I have been reading this forum for a while and posting occassionally.  This will be a good spot for organizing rides.  It would be good if everyone from Texas put the city they live in on their info as Texas is so large.  As an aside my nephew drove to LA last week from Houston.  The halfway point is El Paso.  

I recognize a couple of names from the Two Wheel Texans forum.

Welcome Terry... glad to see you made the trip.  Most folks here so far are east of I-35 but run nearly the entire "height" of the State.   :motorsmile:

:banghead:  Still workin on the ol' carbs in the DFW area. So, technically, I'm not a Texas rider....yet!

Nevertheless....here I am!

BTW...carb cleaner on your hands WILL begin to dissolve your mouse!

Welcome to the forum Tribal... good to see West Texas here too.  Grab some photos at the Iraan rally and have a safe ride.  What model Bandit are you riding??

Hey VeeDub....Was wondering what took you so long to post.  We have not had a lot of TX traffic but I hope the warmer weather might inspire some ride days.  A few of us from Tyler area are headed south tomorrow but I don't really know the route yet.  We are planning on lunch in Jacksonville about 1:00 pm.

It'd be cool to hook up some weekend 'tween your place & mine.... think about it for some future weekend.

A Bandit ride planned for the 16th is getting iffy at this point but still on AFAIK.   :banana:  :beers:
