@craigntx Doesn't have to stay in BFE :p I just want to get out without being alone.

@Cyon Im still looking for people to ride with, I found a guy up in brenham i've ridden with, but he likes to stunt on the freeway, and do tripple digits about 90% of the time. Im more of a 5 over the limit kinda guy. If you are ever up for a run let me know, shoot me a pm.

I generally don't like to be on the freeway at all. I mean, im a 5 over kinda guy, but that doesn't mean I don't do it. If im crusing on the freeway i generally just stay with traffic, I just don't enjoy it as much I guess.

We'd get ran over if we only did 5 over on Houston freeways.

I get your point, not looking to hooligan it up. Works for me. I'll be in touch.

Hey man,

I'm the same way, I only do triple digits rarely on back BACK country roads like 549 out in Hockley, and I don't stunt at all.

I'm in the mindset that A.) I'm still learning, B.) I'm breaking in a BRAND NEW bike, C). I know my limits and D.) I'd like to be in one piece to continue to enjoy my current GF if you know what I mean .

I"m out here in Cypress, moved here 3/4 weeks ago and need someone to ride with who isn't crazy. Hit me up man, I'd love to ride with you sometime.


Cheers,
Zx

I'm down with a missing rear brake caliper bolt. I know, who needs it...Waiting on it to get shipped in and then I'm down to ride almost anytime. The "Kenny Loop" on 36 is fun as well as 1456 if you want do some "high speed" curves and max it out on long open clear straight aways. 529 is always a nice ride as well. Sometimes when bored I go down 529 to 359, the cut over on 3346 which looks straight on the map but really isnt, then haul down 159 to 1456, ride it out to bellville, up 36 to kenny, do the kenny loop a few times in both directions, then back home. Seems to give you a little of everything. Some clear open straights to open the bike to the wall, some good sweepers, a few chicanes. Good fun.
