Where are the Twisties?!

New to the Houston area. Looking for some decent twisties.
Just bought me a 2018 ZX10R and is becoming my daily rider. Looking for more than just long sweeping turns for an on/off ramp and belt way riding.
Haven't rode since Harvey.

Looking through the forums it is mostly meet ups for riding and such, not sure if there is a spot for good locations for twisties and country riding?

Let me know if you know a few spots or if you wanna ride.

Our weekend rides go on all the best curvy roads in the area...they are all northwest and west of Houston out in the country...im off early almost every day of the week if you have time on the weekdays.

Morg's rides are the best. And I can concur that I have not found any better roads than the ones Morg knows.

I would love to join one of the group rides he puts on then, but I work a DuPont shift work schedule. Was hoping to find a couple spots I could ride during my downtime if no group rides were going on.

I've actually never rode with more than 2 or 3 people so it would probably be a fun experience.

When I get home I'll PM you some of my maps/routes. The vast majority of them are probably all the same roads morg rides if not more, including gravel from Houston down to Freeport, as far west as Austin, and as far north as Huntsville/BCS. Out East as well.

Do participate in some of the group rides if you can though. There are some real good folks here on MotoHouston.

I know a pretty good route going from southwest near 99 and 59 up into Brookshire, all twisty back roads. I personally don't like 3090 or the forest anymore, but it's worth checking out if you are near. Definitely join one of Morgstang's rides when you get a chance. Or if you are feeling a bit adventurous, come out here to SA where the REAL hill country and twisties are!

also, nothing wrong with a 3-4 rider group, smaller groups with experienced riders are best IMO

I was a bit skeptical when i saw 33 riders show up Sunday...turned out to be a great day with only 1 radiator leak...
I tend to agree with Gixxerguy about smaller groups but we have had very good luck when we have a large group.
Hats off to all who ride with us.

At least thats what it seems like, but itís just not worth a ride across town for me anymore to only hit those two roads

Yeah its a great route, with a moderate amount of twisties that isnt too demanding and nothing to crazy.

Problem is if your stuck behind a car when you enter the national forest your kinda screwed cause the turns are back to back.
