Would be interested in doing a forest run. Never done it before though so it would have to be a noob friendly ride for sure. One of the guys I ride with says you forest guy have a pretty fast pace. Plus, most rides recently require track time which I have none of.

My favorite is the Fayetteville run......Forest run is the second best. But now that I am in Tennessee, I'm about to acquire some new favorites.

Oh yeah. There's nothing quite like Houston on a motorcycle at around 3am, when most of the fucknutters are asleep, and you're just dodging cops and through traffic. Ramps like I-10 to BW-8 West loop at about 80-90. Leaning into it at about 50 feet in the air and then seeing the city as you exit the turn. Overpasses are the only thing good about riding in Houston proper, almost makes up for the 'tards that are in your way during the day. I also like the area of I-45 downtown between I-10 and 59, when nobody else is on it. The way it dips down and curves around, and everything about 60mph seems exciting. During the day it, of course, it blows donkey .

That was one of the requirements they recommended on one of the last runs. Either that or having been on previous rides with some of the people going. I'm guessing it was due to the pace they were going to be running.

Yes! This! I10 45 59 downtown is fun even at posted speeds cause of the dips and quick direction changes.

You'll be able to see a decent route on Sunday. One if my favs in the southeast area. It doesn't compare to some others but its close to us so it makes for a nice weekend ride.

Overpasses are not the place to lean a bike over. Too many have died that way

IMO all highways and major roads especially here in Houston are no place to play on 2 wheels, they're for point a to point b and I try to avoid them when I can.

Any road that curves and others stay in there lane/line. Straights are a waste of rubber and bore me to tears.
