Like most of you have to say motohouston people are really the biggest family you will hear about around town. I think he is just blowing off some steam on some of the other people he rides with. I think it is messed up that he is working on someones bike and they are not there helping. As for me if I get me lazy a$$ over to his house which beer ussually does it. I am there with him cooking and working on the bikes. Oh yea drinking also, maybe we can do some sort of meet and greet over in this area. I think it is time for a new crowd for this boy to meet. I would like to get some of the other people over on that side of town to meet up maybe we can do a stunt day and bbq afterwards? Well nick dawg I am about to finish some more beer and watch superbike

I totally agree with Htownz, that being said, I am 52 and am not viewed as a punk kid by Banditos/Cruisers. This I feel is a misconception based solely on age. If you act like a punk, you will most likely be treated as such. I have lived a blissful life, I never met many men I could not associate with based on whatever their age. We all have something in common based on our own life and the love for motorcycles no matter what kind we may currently be riding. Granted, some lives are shorter than others. Bottom line is, if a motorcycle rider needs help, I will do whatever I can to help that person. And I hope all riders will feel the same. Now that I have totally bored you, I bid you good night.

They haven't lived life yet and don't understand the whole brotherhood thing. I know what you are talking about and I haven't been riding long but it doesn't take a genious to figure out there is not a whole lot of loyalty. that's what you get with us young 20 somethings and teens riding. I have met a couple of guys who seem to be true and even then time will tell. I didn't get on a bike to be a part of a club or a group. I'll get together with the guys for a good cause but that's about it. I wasn't raised to be a follower and be in a group/club/gang. whatever it is called.
I love the quote.......and I agree with you

man my dad raced motocross and rode street bikes at the same time and still does. he workede at a suzuki and kawasaki dealership. he raised me around motorcycles. and at 9 i got my first dirtbike. by 10 i was racing motocross. now at 18 i am still riding and racing moto and have had a streetbike since 15. i know that that is not alot of time on bikes compared to some people on this forum. but just cause i am young doesnt mean i dont understand the brotherhood thing. i have a group of about 3 to 6 people i can count on riding with anyday of the week. whether it be moto or street. i grew up with these people and we grew up around motorcycles. motorcycles are what i do. i dont do school sports, i dont do extra curricular activities of any kind. i work with my dads construction company, go to school, and ride every chance i get on anything i can and all my friends are the same way. we work on bikes together ride together and chill together when it rains.motorcycles are our life.

difference being in a club or gang is the smaller sect will fill the needs of the individuals and the larger group will still get together and have their rides. Same around here... I ride alot by myself, have the smaller groups I get together with, then the northside groups and even the larger cross town groups as well...

singling yourself to one group will make a closer bond but that closes you out to so much more available... Did you know at any given time there is someone setting up a track day, drag day, ride at one side of town or the other... the options are endless... vs a small group getting together to ride on a particular time, then knowingly twice a year alot will get together on a planned ride...

I think its awesome that five days before a ride 60 some bikes can assemble from all over houston to get together and ride twice in a row to Galveston... As for loyalty, we all have our separate lives and ambitions and riding is something we share in common.

I have been in church groups less supportive then MH, sadly to say... What MH does promise is a fellowship from people of different opinions and backgrounds that may clash but at least you come out with an answer for a question, support from peers and open invitations from strangers that will support and help at a single notice.

Just my two cents but I have only benefited from riding with the MH group
Very well put.

True. There really is something inherent in ALL riders. We can all connect on at least SOME level, regardless of age, , color, etc, or bike for that matter...

Yea well I am sorry for that one gu who is at work. Yea the beer was cold great and superbikes was a good show. I have to agree motohouston does make event worth going to when word gets around on here. The bike night at applebees for the other guy sounds great but sundays I tend to be busy getting stuff done. If it isn't working or school during the day night time is being a dad. I was just backing up my friend since most of the people he has met never seem to strike me as a true rider. really from that last crew he got with. I been on here for a while myself and motohouston is the best way to get with other riders and meet people on here that want to ride. To me even before I started riding I used to hang with Mr.Butts over at coney island and been to holmes and other places. That is what really got me into the scene for bikes and wanting to ride.

You have a picture of yourself doing a wheelie on a public road as your avatar

As far as young riders, I think it's great. I'm 19 and I love motorcycles. I have met plenty of other young riders throughout my time on here and as a biker in general. We are the future, please embrace us No, but in all seriousness, judge someone by their character not age.

Although the lines of Sportbiker vs. HD/Cruiser rider are very noticable the closer you get to civilization (Large metro areas). On the open road every one waves regardless of what your on. I have had more Cruiser riders stop and see if everything was alright while I rested on the side of the road, then sportbike riders, perhaps cause they know I am not broke down (ha ha)... Anyhow I really don't need a club or a hangout. My hangout is any twisty road within 500 miles. If you see a Dark Red ZX1100 on some back county road going well over the speed limit... Try to keep up...

Peace

15 would be like 2 and 1/2 mile every minute....that's still pretty fast...

Never heard of those races but , that's insane....
maps.google.com says that the 610 loop is about 38 miles around. According to an online calculator, doing that in 15 minutes would be an avg speed of 152 mph, believable with a powerful sportbike but pretty dangerous. 8 minutes would be 285 mph so I'm not buying that. Cali's 35 minute run would avg about 65 mph.

Back on topic though... I've met some cool people on here going on rides. FlipSideUp, Caligonetx, northhoustoncbr, hellfroze, etc. I wish I could know them better and meet more people in general. I just don't get out as much as I'd like.

I agree with what was posted earlier about the age of the rider and how they act. I think that part of the problem of the image of sportbikes is due to the larger percentage of younger less responsible people riding them. I'm not saying that everyone riding a sportbike is irresponsible, but your average cager or cop isn't going to remember a rider for riding responsibly. They are going to remember that squid doing a high speed standup on the frontage road or the guy that crashed and died while street racing.

I guess what I'm getting at is this, there are going to be people that are out there just for themselves. If there are some SB riders that are bad apples, that's no reason to judge all of us the same way.

I spend more time lurking than posting, but I'm sure that I could pm a bunch of people on here and ask for help if I needed it and they'd step up. If someone pm'd me out of the blue, I'd do what I could to help them. MH has a lot of good members and I'm glad to be a part of this board.
