    Welcome to the forum. There have been a number of new MOA members from up your way and I'm sure they'll shout out a welcome to you also. There's always something interesting or informative happening around here. If you get a chance, we're always interested in seeing bike pictures.

    Seems we have several new state members.



    Welcome navy_grape...any story to the screen name? As mentioned post a pic under the K-Bike Flying Brick section when you can. Check out the regional forums and meet up with some of the other members in the state.

    There is also the Lone Star BMW Riders ( lonestarbmwriders.org ). If you are in the DFW area you could be like many of us and belong to both. Gives you more riding options!!!

    Wow

    There seems to be a good number of folks in the area. We live down in Athens.

    About the screen name. I recently retired from the Navy. If you have ever seen the movies about aircraft carriers, you know we are identified by the job we do by the color of jersey we have. I was a purple shirt (AKA Fuelie) So the nickname Navy Grape has just kinda stuck.

    Looking forward to getting to know some of ya'll

    Cheers,
    The Grape

    I am amused when I watch "Dangerous Catch", a cakewalk when compared to carrier duty.
    Thank you for your service and let us know what you doing and when and like that.
    There are a growing number of members in Texas, I hope you get a chance to meet them all.
