Stephanie in Conroe

I am relatively new to motorcycling. I bought my first bike when I was 29 and it took my dad and I about 4 months of Sunday's to get her running. I currently ride a 2008 Triumph Bonneville T100 and I'm smitten with cafe racers. I work from home so I can go on rides whenever the weather is permitting.

That would be nice. I also wouldn't complain about taking a ride to current meetings. I am still figuring out how to navigate and get the most out of this site.

Welcome! There's a Thursday night meet at Shepherd Park Draught House (34th and Shepherd) that's primarily composed of the BMOA guys, if you're interested in meeting up with other British bike owners. Of course, everyone is welcome, regardless of their bike, but it is a good group to know if you ever need any Triumph-specific help.

If you like group rides, there are a few of us in the Conroe / Huntsville area that ride up thru the forest most weekends. There is also a ride to Chappel Hill on the 28th that may be of interest to you.

I was looking at the forum and page for this group and could not decide if it was still happening or not. Thanks for the info!
