New Guy - Gump

Hey MH, new guy here. Iíve lived in Houston for a few years now. I raced motocross for a long time growing up. Unfortunately, I lost my bikes to a tornado about five years ago. I filled the gap with the occasional Harley road trip with Dad (Tail of the Dragon on a Deuce was interestingÖ), but that wasnít quite filling the void. So, a few months ago I did the only sensible thing, and went out and bought a 2015 Ducati 899 Panigale (pic attached). I havenít had a whole lot of time to ride it, but I hope to change that soon.

I look forward to meeting some of you on here, and getting tips on adapting to the concrete (didnít translate from dirt quite as well as I was thinking). Iím near the Upper Kirby area, if anyone that wants to ride sometime is nearby.

(Morgstang, I definitely plan on making it out your way sooner rather than later.)

While I'm at it, I'll dust off some of my old dirt pictures, assuming I attached it right.



Roll Tide,

Gump

Awesome, we're not too far from each other and I plan on doing a Morgstang ride in the near future as well, we can group ride out to the start location. Little6 might also have some group ride details for you.

I'm in Downtown/Medical area.

+1 on the Morgstang ride. I haven't been out yet, but I plan on it. Also, nice Panigale! Those dirt pics are sick too. Welcome to MH.
