Call to all dual sport bikes of MotoHouston

Hello everybody,
Fellow riders of dual sport bikes (European, Japanese, etc) in the MotoHouston community, introduce yourself! I know you are out there. Lets see how many we are and maybe organize a meet&ride

I am Stromtrooper, have been riding my Suzuki flat black DL650K8 V-Strom (aka WeeStrom) since May 2008. Bought it used with 2k miles. It's already grown to 13k miles. I live on the west side of Houston.

Call to all dual sport bikes of MotoHouston

What do you ride, which side of Houston are you located? Who's interested in a meet?

I had a KTM 625 SMC, but sold it a couple years ago.

I am known to flog my Dad's Kawasaki KLR 650 from time to time, though. Fun bike!
