And some of us cannot physically ride anymore but still are here because MH is family. I do miss a lot of my old TSBA folks as well. Too bad they don't have the presence they once did as well as HSN and others.

I just recently (within the last 2 months) purchased my first Street/sport bike, found MH and started joining in the fun. I really enjoy the group rides and have learned a lot in just the month or so I've been meeting up with the great folks of MH. I too am "older" at 43 and can't ride as much as I want. I do break away when ever possible and get some seat time in.

I'm still here, although I admit to not being as active. Partly because I stay in SA for school and I'm only back during the winter and summer and some weekends in between. Also partly due to facebook basically taking over meet ups. Its kind of depressing really, I miss seeing meets and hangouts here on a normal occasion and bike nights. I feel like the bike scene in Houston in general has dwindled down quite a bit, to the point where its only small groups of friends around town who know each other and not common, weekly meet up points. And if there are any, please let me know and I'll show up and hang out next time I'm in town with a bike and some free time (bombshells 45 south doesn't count, lol)

MH for life or until it stops loading one day. I have met so many great people, learned so much information and bought and sold so much stuff from this site the last ten years. Social media is definitely hurting this platform. I couldn't even count the people or insane things that have happened here that impacted my life. I seem to remember a few threads that brought so much traffic the site shut down, one specifically involving a police chase...

Word. This site is my community. Ive made real and e-friends through MH. Ive had great time, good times and annoying times here. I too have learned so much, starting with my joining in 2006 and quickly learning that I didnt know about !

Like you, Ill keep logging on until that day the page won't load.

Still rock my MH eat/sleep/ride shirt!

All my MH gear needs to be replaced... Someone should put an order in for new when this whole pandemic thing blows over.

I'm in for shirts but can we upgrade the quality from the thick, wide gilden variety? Maybe get some athletic material ones?

I pledge to start posting more moto threads starting today

I might be up for a shirt if you do sleeveless. Not a wife beater though, sleeveless muscle or gym shirt with a regular neck.

Been riding some type of M/C since I was 7. I am now 53. I joined MH around 2005. I always wanted a spare trackbike but that never worked out. I did many local MH (HAK) outings and forest runs. Then one of my last MH rides some of the group started doing wheelies in traffic on I-45 near the woodlands mall. I love wheelies but in the middle of traffic not so much. Soon after I sold my GSXR and bought a Hardley. The GF loves it and we can ride comfortably for hours. I can't ride in that sportbike position for very long anymore. I don't really miss it too much. I still attend MotoGP COTA and watch Motoamerica etc.. And I spend time taking her kid to ride/ race motocross. So pretty much a cruiser rider these days.

I could still ride but racing and track days are likely just a fond memory...
I moved out of downtown about 4, almost 5 years ago so I would not likely come into town for meets, but I did enjoy going to them and meeting to watch the races at the different sports bars ... some of the old heads that I used to have so much fun are arguing with (good natured) are no longer around...I really miss old Bill embarrassing me when we were on the same side of an argument....
not people post on here who would even know me anymore... but I still have a look everyday
TMGP is waiting, you could always just go out with a bang!

Buy the way Obed, my 2nd boy is now riding and I have a 2 year old daughter as well who cant wait to get out there and crash.
