New to MH in the Heights

Hey everyone - I met Gary (mekrew) at the TDD MSRH event this past Saturday, and decided that I'd join the forum and introduce myself. I lived in Houston a few years ago, and just moved back this past January. For anyone that was at that event, I was on the red & black GSXR with white number plates #34. I'm currently living in the Heights, but plan on moving to NW Houston in the next 3-4 months or so. Although I'm used to having lots of riding buddies, being new to the area (and the fact that most of my old street riding buddies got married...you know what that usualy means!) I don't know another soul with a street bike.

Although I've taken a bit of time off of racing, I'm looking forward to getting a few more track days under my belt so that I can jump back in the fray as a WERA expert and do some damage (still got a couple of seconds to go before I can do some damage)!

That's about it...I noticed that there are a couple of MH members in the Heights...pm me if you wanna go ride around, or are heading to the track. :-)

Stop by ScooterSmith on Yale in the heights (around 5th or 6th street) and say Hi to Mr. Smith. He races CMRA on his 636 and occasionally TMGP on his scooter. He's kinda old school, and races some vintage MX. He'll know about rides / riders in the area, and he's a cool guy as well. Just be sure to go after 12 noon so he's open. Tell him Peter with the Zuma 70 from TMGP sent ya. I think he can also hook you up on catalog parts at a decent discount. And he's local.

Then try Metric on 25th or 26th just east of N Shepherd. He races CMRA and dirt track and his wife also races on an all female endurance team. He's not as talkative, but knows what's up and is rumored to be a good wrench and tuner.

There's a shop on Durham at 20th or so. They seem to just want free money by gouging prices on used 80's and 90's stuff. 3/4 of the showroom is the owner's and it's not for sale. I'd skip it.

Hey Shademan..thanks for the heads up! I know about the shop on Durham...I'll check out ScooterSmith and Metric also. I'm down with meeting CMRA guys around the Heights, as I started racing with CMRA a while ago!

Did I say Gary? It is Greg - Da Thrilla to the end - on da killa KTM!

You like those Durrani rims? They are pretty sweet - I should have mentioned that! Those are the FIRST set on the track (as I'm the designated tester..although out of a temporary "retirement," stumbling around the first two sessions at MSRH you'd never have guessed that!) That's the second track day I've used them on, and frankly, I am more impressed than I thought I was gonna be. I understand they're shipping out right now, we should see more of them on the track soon I hope.

There's been a lot of scuttlebutt on the web about the new Durrani injection molded magnesium wheels...if anyone wants to see them on the track (or just on the bike), lemme know and I'll tell ya when I'm out next!
