New to Houston/Katy

I just moved here about a week ago. I have had the bike out a couple of times but I can't find a good place to open it up a little.

I have a TL1000R. She is kinda heavy but she has soul and torque on tap.

I gotta find some places to play down here.

Here are a couple of pics...

Thanks. *searching map now*

I can't wait to get out a little more. My wife broke her shifting foot so she won't be riding soon. We might check things out 2-up though.

Welcome.
Yep. She actually did pretty well up at Hallet. It has some serious drive out of the corners. I have gotten used to the weight so I hardly notice it anymore. The newer 1k inlines would walk me in the straight but others had trouble. It comes out of the corner strong. I have driven that course more than I have ridden it.

We just moved from OKC. We lived up there for 6yrs. Bleh...

There are plenty of rides and events. Keep an eye out in the Rides, events section below.
Welcome to the site. Thats a really nice bike, man. There are trackdays coming up so look for those posts as well.
Good luck and careful who you ride with. It seems your riding style and experience doesnt lend itself to squidliness but there is a lot of it on the roads here.

Good luck and Again, Welcome!

sup mang! I live in Katy too. Not much in the way of fun roads out here. FM1463 south is okay if you want something close. It's just past Katy Mills Mall.
