Welcome guys-As per our meeting we have this subforum set up for our use. Now is the time to post up. This is open to any rider in the Houston area. Again welcome all. This will give the Houston area an extra option to the Northeast riders group. The folks over there are bunch of great guys also! :D

Thanks for checking us out-just got this setup this weekend. Not trying to compete with the Northside since I like riding with them also. We have some RAT members on the westside that needed a home and since they were utilizing 2 different sites, had a meeting and went to one site so that anyone that wanted to ride could postup. We will be posting up a ride here shortly as soon as I get the rest of the guys on this board. And the aim was to setup a group ride every other week.

Hi Chris, good to see something going on this side of town. Now if we can get Charlie and Frank to come pass Route 290 every once in awhile for a ride. I do enjoy going up to Pork Chops with them. Hope to see everyone soon.

Found it. Personally I think that Houston and surrounding cities/areas should just be one big group. There aren't enough Triumphs around to split up into areas.

Anyhow, I found y'all and I have subscribed.

Letting everyone here know that HE WHO SHALL NOT BE NAMED and I are trying to round up some riders for a Hill Country road trip in May....

Reason for setting up this site was to move the RAT group that I normally ride off of the meetup.com site and that anyone could post a ride or a comment. Other site was somewhat limited. Not trying to compete with Charlie just needed to find the guys a new home.

Frank and I are meeting at the Pourhouse Saturday May 8th to discuss and map out a plan for a Hill Country Ride on the 21st.

I would say meet us there around 6 ish for anyone who wants to go to Austin or for some good 'ol BS.

Who do we have going so far? Do I understand that SG and Bonneville are in with us? I'll probably be at the Pourhouse by 3 to reserve a table.lol (and warm up my glass)
I figured Ken would want to go.
You know, working nights gets to be a drag. Not much chance to BS and talk. Just work, go home, sleep, and go back to work. Get up early Saturday, feel lousy and have only one good day a week. That's Sunday.
Therefore, I kind of look forward to getting off of work and posting up my words of wisdom. At least it feels like I'm talking to someone before I go to bed. Be yelling at you all real soon. :Devil3

Possible Route

Think we blew it last time. We should stay in San Marcus again, I'll pick the hotel.
Leave out early on hwy 12 west and pick up 32 (el espenoza de diablo) thru Fischer and on to Blanco and Blanco State Park. Short Break and smoke, then, 1888 along the Blanco River to Luckenbach for some photo ops and maybe a cold one.
From there, a shot hop over to Fredricksburg with some bike shots in fromt of the Admiral Nimitz Hotel and Museum, maybe a German lunch and a cold one along with a few cigarettes.
Leave out on 16 going sw to Kerrville. Go west on 39 following the Guadelupe River to Ingram and then to Hunt. Continue on to 83, then south to Leakey for the 336 ride again.( Three Sisters) Leave Leakey going east on 337 to Vanderpool, Medina and pick up 16 back past Bandera 46 east and head to Boerne. Continue on to New Braunfels, 306 N to 12 and back to San Marcus.
Well, Check it out on a map and give me some feedback. It's all great riding, plenty of stopping places for pics, food and drinks. Should take a good days ride to get it in, but, very doable.
Just a thought and we'll all get together and agree on the ride.
Later

We can't get together and agree on if we are going to talk smack or not, how are we going to agree on a route??
I say lets go streaking thru the quad with Frank the Tank-really nobody wants to see that :eek: There's some smack talk for ya :D
Will be there for the route meeting on the 8th
