Any Houston Area MV Owners?

Just trying to get togther a list of Houston, Texas area MV owners that might be interested in getting together and riding occasionally. So far I know of two; lorenzotx (Larry), and b42day (Carlos). I met and rode with Larry last Saturday, along with my Mille-riding friend Buddy, and we rode out to Fayetteville. Of course, we took all the nice, twisty back roads we could along the way - a distance of about 90 miles each way. We left early and kept it short to try to get back before the worst of the midday heat. I neglected to bring my camera, but fortunately, Larry had his along and got a few pix when we arrived in Fayetteville (see the related thread "Texas Breakfast Run"). I'm the 'older' guy behind the F4.

So if you live in the area and would like to join in on the fun, PM or email me and I'll get a list going.

Ciao,
John

Not in Houston often, but may get down there (family in the area). Let me know when something is forming, and I will try to get down there.

Larry tried to get me out when he was up in Austin but I was not able to get out that time.

Steve,
I went riding with John the other day for a breakfast run out to Fayetteville and we did some pretty nice roads from Houston out west, (see the Texas Breakfast Run on the MV sightings forum). I probably will be back in Austin sometime in a couple of weeks. I will let you know when. If you are in Houston get a hold of John (Falcopilot) and maybe yall could get together on some Saturday morning. We like to leave early to bet both the heat and the traffic. I definetely look forward to getting the Texas MV riders together for some rides, especially in the Hill Country.

Larry, I'm free to ride most weekends, and usually don't plan much for these short summer BTH rides. There's just so many places you can go, and get back by noon. I'll be glad wne the weather starts to cool some, around November or so. If you're going to be in town this weekend call me.

Ciao

If it's a big to-do Amer and I could probably manage to get down there from DFW.

JamesC/Amer, my son goes to school in Abilene - that is not far from you folks, right? Perhaps I can swing East, when I move him back up, at the end of August?

Wait, it is not that close.... 180 miles from Abilene to Dallas....

I am in Houston and willing to go riding some time. I am still under the 600 mile-mark on the bike so maybe a good idea to take it for service first, or not ....

Anyways, I leave west of Houston, so let's keep in touch.

Think I saw you getting your bike out of the shop the day you were getting your from the 600 mile service and I was buying mine.

I assume that you are referring to Larry. Ironically, I think Larry saw me infor my 600 mile service, as he was buying his bike.

How are you liking the bike so far?
