    Texas is in the hizzouse!

    welcome to your regional forum!

    this is where YOU can start planning your own rides and meet ups with those near you. you will also see club events springing up from time to time in your region, and they will be discussed here.

    look for great things from the MOA, and create great things yourself. it's your club - make it happen!

    "Heat loving" may be a bit overreaching. Let's just say "heat tolerant".

    Big Bend Bash - March 27th to March 29th

    There's a group of BMW Sport Touring riders visiting BB this weekend, some from NM, AZ and from the great country of Texas...just general conviviality and riding.

    Most are staying at the Ramada in Alpine and the others (the Beer lovers???) at the Historic Holland in Alpine
    Check out it out here .

    Big Bend:)

    I just did it last month from CA.. BB is worth the ride indeed. Winter is BETTER there, as I did it in summer one year and it was HOT. I was going to Mexico too, but advise a lot of research first, because they are in a war with drug lords and guns right now, at many border areas from TX to AZ. Juarez especially is HOT right now and "not" advised, along with other crossings. DO your homework, if Mexico is on your agenda. Our Border Patrol has it in hand however and I felt safe knowing they were out there in "large numbers" patroling. West TX is a fine ride. Randy

    Hi folks. I'm returning to the forum after a few years away due to work, life, etc. Anyway, I'm in the process of moving from Iowa to Keller, TX (Ft Worth suburb), and am looking forward to trying out some of the local roads. Any insight on good rides would be most appreciated. I'll have my bike in Tejas some time in the next couple weeks, and hope to use it on my commute as often as possible.

    Lee, don't know if you remember, but a few of my music-loving buddies and I had a beer with you at The Gingerman in Austin a few years back during SXSW.

    Regards to all,

    Just joined MOA recently but this seems like the right place to say hello.

    Would like to meet some of you guys in the Houston area for rides, moved down here from CT for work about a year ago and my riding buddies are pretty far away now!
