Thumbs up 2012 motohouston highlights

In light of Lucars thread about the 2012 top street riders of mh how about discussing some of the highlights and such of the year.


First off- The SOUTHEAST MEETS! I started them earlier this year and they've came a long way. Such a great way to meet other riders close to us. I've meet alot of people this year and have came to call alot of them friends now. Not only motorcycle related stuff but hanging out, football parties, many a drunken nights etc... Great people and glad to have met them.

Discovering the track- what fun! Been riding a few years now and this was my first year on the track. Thanks to all those who got me out there and the help along the way. I've had alot of great advice from instructors and other experienced track riders. Especially Rykoson, bluepine, and joeybaila. All halffast guys coincidentally, and a great group they are!

Getting involved with the forum- its been a great experience getting to meet alot of you folks this year and I'm glad to be a part of the community. I've met alot of great people around the Houston area. Had fun hanging out and riding with those I've been able to.

Those are just a few of the things I'm appreciative of and have made this year so great. I'm sure I'll be adding a few more things as i think of them. Looking forward to more memories and great times in the future.

So what has made this year memorable for you guys? What are some highlights and things worth mentioning?

Here....is a quick vid of 2012....will probably add some more to it from this weekend!! Still one have time to get some more track time in before end of 2012...then its on to street rides...lets do this!!! Love riding in the cold.. Thank for Texas Year Round Riding!


Also thanks to Dave and RideSmart for all their time.. The other schools are great, but Dave, Brandt, Randy, and Thomas have taught me so much...All of us that have taken ridden together know how much we have learned together, and how much fun we have had!! Great memories!! Thanks for those guys!!! We should have a great schedule for 2013 too!

I am extremely glad and fortunate that our community has people like you all that can we as riders can benefit from our shared knowledge. We hone in our craft, enjoy friends, family, and fast riding...some slow riding too... Now that we have a solid direction for HF, it's going to be a fruitful 2013!!!....I'm also glad to know the leaders of all the other local Houston community ..members here.... that are members there... are thankful for MH!!

Thank goodness and good riddance.

There are wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy too many highlights for me. From threads to rides to meets to track and the people. 2012 has been a Badass year.

Hill country trip is really high up there.

You've been doing a of a job with the SE meets dude. I try to make them when I can but 90% of the time work prevents me. I plan on making a lot more of them in 2013, and on a bike dammit. Lol
