+1 sterling ranch, but I’d get some protective gear, even if it’s second hand (you can find some deals on eBay & Facebook market) ...
Used gear is a heck of a lot cheaper than X-rays, doctor appts, etc...

There is a spot to ride at 610 and south post oak along the bayou where 610 curves around towards reliant. There is a little driveway off the feeder that leads in there. Good spot if you just want to play around without having to drive out of town.

Legend has it that on Thursday nights some supermoto Hooligans appear out of the bayou and will do all kinds of hooligan .

Hahaha!

Speaking of dirt bikes, keep a lookout and lock your bikes up tight. Rio was hit; they took all the bikes that were in the shop.

So you managed to buy a bike but cant buy the gear? I think you just need to want the gear as much as you want a bike.

No I actually traded my kawi 636 for the dirt bike. I had a baby and don't ride the street much anymore .. especially out here in Baytown area there's to many idiots on there phones not paying attention. I'm planning on buying all my gear after the 1st of the yr but I'm dying to ride now
