There aint too many good backroads out here. Thats proably why you see alot of stretched and lowered bikes.

Welcome to Texas btw

What do I call spirited? How do you define it? We wuz haulin is the way I define it, had you been there I would guess you would have considered it haulin too.
The bike I was on that day was an FZ1, which I realize is not a supersport but me and it can hang well enough that I was surprised at the corning ability of the guys on the stretched bikes.
So what point are you wanting to see hit home? cuz I'm hungry

Welcome to Texas btw
I'm sure being from Michigan has influenced my opinion on some of the trends I see here in Texas. In Michigan, the Royal Oaks bike night every Thursday was huge, It had at least 300 bikes every week. Of those bikes 95% of them were RIDDEN, not cruisers. I go to a bike night here and all I see is lowered stretched bikes, neon lights, and stereos. Oh and don't forget the helmet mohawks but thats another thread. All this money for mods but I guess their account was empty when it was time to order gear. Just a completely different scene for me.

Royal Oaks doesn't look too impressive from this video...are all Michigan people into cruisers?


Are you a member of Detroit Sportbikes?

http://www.detroitsportbikes.com/forums/index.php

You must be going to the wrong "meets" to think everyone in Houston is like that. Just like ricers I have seen all throughout Michigan, but I don't go around assuming the entire city/state is ricer.

Sounds like a different scene. Have you ever thought about riding at a closed course track? There are 6 Tracks in Texas, all within a days drive from Houston. I'm sure you would have a ton of fun there. Plus all the bike there are "ridden".

That avatar might confuse some people. You need to clarify that was outside of a bar and a fat girl was heading your way lickin her lips so you leaned the bike over and threw some rubber her way. She could not escape the smell of the rubber and began eating the pieces flying at her which allowed you the time to get away safely.

Just sayin you know, so people are not confused

I do have some clean azz rims and the truck just happens to look good. It was all the best deal for the setup I wanted. Plus heads roll when I come through and it handles like a motha. Lets race.
Bigger the truck, bigger the blindspot. I know from experience. Sometimes you couldnt even see cars unless you rolled down the window and stuck your head out.

I think you will actually get much more seat time here seeing as how it is only warm enough to ride comfortably in Michigan for about 3 months out of the year. On second thought, maybe not, it's only cool enough to ride comfortably for about 3 months a year here.

Hey bun1t, first welcome to Houston and to MH.... do all 300 bikes get together and ride the twisties at night? or they just ride the highways route gang style? our group mostly meet in the morning and hit some twisties early sunday mornings, nothing compared to what you are used to in Michigan but we try to make it fun every time we hit those roads, and i can assure you on thing...... you will not find a single lowered/stretched bike in our group

here is a link to our ride last sunday:

http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...=140700&page=5

go to #98 to see a video of the roads we ride every sunday morning.
