Make sure you have a full tank of fuel before we leave!
Please make sure you have the required gear: Helmet, gloves, boots, riding jacket (preferably with armor), riding pants or jeans.
Also experience and MSF would be helpful.
Check your tire pressure also

Sounds good Brad.

We hit some nice back roads, definintely need to setup an exploration ride. Look for that around december (1st week).

Group (eight of us) did good ,some first timers and people new to the roads over there.

I thought we would never get through that light at Brookshire.

Just got home. Nice ride, thanks for setting it up!

Now to look through GoPro and see if I got any good footage (hopefully the water crossing ). I'll probably pull some stills too.

Great ride! Thanks for hosting it grsa. and jimrad for sweeping.



Guy on the green 250 (forgot your name) A track day would help you. Stuff like the of your feet on the pegs and using your legs to help you support your upper body when braking.Stuff I noticed Plus those stock tires IRC's I would really only use for commuting.Try looking into better tires. The Pirelli Diablo Rosso II is what I currently have and rock in the track. Here is a ninja 250 forum with everything you could possibly want to know.

YO!! grsa what was that place you mention by downtown to go see.
