    Matt - we're going to miss you up here in Syracuse, however, this time of year, the only thing you'll be riding are snowmobiles. I'm guessing you have a year round riding season in Temple.

    Its a great Idea to all meet up and ride. If I could have everyone send me there names, email add, what year bike you have, and phone number I will organize a list and send it out to you all. Send to slykeopath@gmail.com

    I did see a black 02-07 VFR on my street at about 5:15pm. I was in my car driving home from work. Nice ride. you where right next to my apartment.

    Unless you're moving to Austin, check your brains at the state border, unless you're from Missippi, in which case, don't bother!!

    a couple of weeks ago, a friend of mine and I went down hwy 67 through cleburne, and found that it merged with 377 and ran straight to Dublin, TX (if you havent been to dublin, not only is it a gorgeous ride down, but its a GREAT stop...espically if your a dr pepper addict like me!). from there, we rode further down 67 to Comanche, and hit this little stretch of road called hwy 16....no cops, no cars hardly, and LOTS of open space....you can really ride it like a sportbike out on 16. after that, we made it to 183 which took us straight to austin.

    2.5 hours down 35 to austin, or 10.5 hours using the central texas back roads....gee, thats a hard choice >:)

    anytime that folks want to schedule a ride, im in SW DFW and im up for it anytime!
