I don't really work in the MC industry anymore outside of coaching, but from what I know, used bike sales are off the charts still and classes stay booked up several months out. Motorcycling isn't going anywhere in Houston.

My riding slowed down this year. Lost my job and my health insurance along with it back in Feb, as well as a bunch of other family/personal stuff going on, so my riding slowed waaaayyyyyy down for this year. Like, going from riding daily for the last 5 years to I've touched my bike once this month so far. Life happens.

I lurk...
I used to love going to the monthly meets. Things change, life, kids, busy etc. I do still ride a lot. Mostly solo rides on the weekends. I currently own 5 bikes, but only 2 are in the front line fleet. 2 projects, and one living room art exhibit. LOL

Additionally, has the market not been favorable for used bikes? Are bikes not affordable anymore for the young and budget savvy adrenaline junkies? How are you seeing the culture nowadays? What has changed so much, that people aren't riding/meeting like they use to?

The car/truck culture is strong in Houston. Street racing is still popular and car meets have always been (and still is) a popular tradition for Houston. I am pretty puzzled why the forum is dead? Since I've been living in California performing contract work, I joined a local motorcycle forum here. Their motorcycle community is very active, almost as active as MH used to be! Which leads me to believe there's still a chance MH can come back... It just needs a breath of fresh air.

Btw, I'm doing a poll above.

What forum in Cali??
I used to do the MotoLoco in ventura but I started just riding solo.

I'm north of SF, so they call the general area the Bay Area. The forum out here is called BARF (Bay Area Riders Forum). Pretty catchy name
