I'm assuming Texas would be considered "Central" or should we be posting in the "Redneck" section!?! Didn't see that one listed! Ride safe, Ya'll.

While I don't live in the Central area, I have roots in Oklahoma and kin in Texas. I also finished my Bachelors at A&M. So "HOWDY" Gary!

HOWDY back

A warm Texas "Howdy" back at ya, Old Bike Guy. Not sure when you received your degree, but I'll bet it hasn't changed much. The people are still friendly and the ground is still flat here in the Panhandle. We have a few twisties out here, razorbacksrule, but we have to travel farther to find them. Looks like its warm enough to ride the custom to work this morning, so I'd better get packin'. Ya'll take care, now.

Howdy! I was born and raised in Texas, graduated from Texas A&M in `04, and then joined the Navy. I haven't been back to Texas in over a year and I miss it.

It took 9 years and three colleges but I finally finished up at Aggie land in '76. I got a degree, a brand spankin' new Caterpiller cap and a six pack of Lone Star. I still have the cap.

I'm not a native but I got here as fast as I could. :)

Live near Lubbock and ride whenever I can get the chance (except when it's too windy, I hate the wind!)

I'm with you on the wind, BikerBill, especially on two wheels. Read an article in the Amarillo paper this weekend, an unexpected gust of wind blew a biker off I-27 last week, caused some head injuries.

I'm not a native either. I came down here 1992 to Sheppard AFB and retired in 1999 and just stayed, got a job with the city and am working on my 2nd retirement now. I like it here, the better half wants to go back to Missouri after I retire again, but it's less riding time I tell her. I'm going to lose this one I have a feeling LOL.

I'm a native Texan and I love it here. Any kind of riding you want. I live on a local manmade lake on what is known as the "twisties" in this flat land. I ride year round and am not above heading for Llano to get a cup of coffee. My wife likes to ride. She's from Wisconsin and she loves Texas. I'm glad our winters are short. Guardian, maybe we'll run into each other one day.......:D

Off topic Gary, but would you happen to be the Gary Wright who drives sprint car for ASCS?

hello ppl i live in central texas an yeah the wind is pretty strong here been here my whole 36 years of life. been trying to find someone to ride with ere where i am i am new to riding so it would be cool to ride with a veteran ever now an then. that way they can tell me what i am doing wrong if i do. havent been on any highways as of yet guess i am trying to get it through my head that its gunna happen sooner or later. like i said i am new been riding for only 4 weeks now an it is mainly to work an back but i go for short rides around town but i really want o make it out of town sometime, an i guess i think it would be better to go with someone other than myself you know to keep an eye on me lol. but anyways hello again an welcome to TEXAS lol

hello from north Austin! newbie rider and Texan here: 2.5 years from California. sounds like that ride to Llano is fairly easy. i wonder if i-35 is a little too much for a beginner.

Why would you want to waste good riding time on I35 anyway!!:D:D

Head west and south!
Fredericksburg is great bike destination just a couple hours from Austin.
Go a little further southwest to Kerrville, Medina and Leakey for the best motorcycle roads in TX.
