New Guy in Ft Worth TX
« on: September 03, 2018, 07:29:53 AM »
I still consider my self as a newish rider. Only about 7K miles on the clock, but going up. I am here because I am trying to see the different aspects of riding. I love to travel and the Tiger gets me there with a smile. I am still working things out with the travel, gear and packing. I learn something new each trip. What I like and what I don't like.
Hope to see ya'll on the road.
Carl

Welcome from Kentucky!   Make sure to check out the Event Schedule and specifically the Texas Hill Country Rally in late October.  Great area to ride and a fun event!

Welcome from New York, though it's looking like I may be back in DFW by the end of the year.   :)

Thanks for the warm welcome.
It was the Hill country ride that led me to this place. I am still unsure about making it, but God willing and with my Lovely Brides permission I will make it.

I hope you make it safe and sound. The winters are not a show stopper down here for riding. Part of the summer can be depending on your heat tolerance.
Keep the shiny side up.

After a pretty good bunch of miles, I'm still struggling with packing. I still pack more than necessary and invariably forget something I need

A great spread of states, thanks for the welcome. I am sure that you all have some great roads to see.
Marty, I have Kerrville on my calendar but won't be able to make the call till closer to go time.
Ohio is on my to do list, I have a buddy that has been telling me about the riding up there. Awesome.
Packing is always an issue. I have basically gotten all of the camping gear down to using the panniers and the topbox for clothes and electronics. I would like to get it down to no top box. A work in progress.
Always wanted to do some Kentucky riding, camping, hunting.
Strait up 35, and less than 1000 miles. Thats getting in iron butt territory. Minnesota looks closer than I thought.

I first got licensed in Texas and I rode all through the heat of summer in 2017. I will say that rush hour on 635 was a new and interesting experience on my NC700X. I just moved here in October and I'll be really happy when I get back to Texas.

Which is worse.....the heat of a Texas summer or the cold of a N.Y. winter?

At least you’re not living in the snow belt of upstate NY!   But then again, anywhere within 100 miles of the city should be avoided if possible!  :).

I'm not sure which is worse, to be honest. Though, I will say that my boyfriend and I have ridden everything from 20°F to 120°F...
