Austin Foks...

Ok, so.... If all goes well, I'll probably be moving to Austin pretty soon. I'd say within the next few months or so. Who wants to show me around?

I will be back from Iraq in about a month. There are alot of roads around there. Once my roady gets his 600rr back together I will PM you. Shoot me a message so I can save it. We are talking about a Ridesmart track day also. If you get up to Fort Hood/Killeen area, we chase corners every saturday morning for a couple hours if you are intrested.

Count me in. I'd be up for a nice group ride on some twisty roads.

Throw out a few weeks notice and my son and I will be glad to come.
We're new into streetbikes but have talked about heading to central Texas for some rides.
Hopefully we won't make you guys look like your riding with a couple of stupid riders who haven't got up to speed yet.
I hadn't ridden a crotch rocket since '88 when my wife found out we were expecting twins. My wife said the Slingshot had to go because she didn't want to be a widow with orphaned children.
I still have yet to ride my new bikes as viciously as I did back then.
I don't know if I grew a few brain cells since then or if I've become pussyfied.
My 10's have mind boggling power compared to my old scooter.
If y'all know of some good off road riding I can bring dirt bikes too for some cross over riding.
As long as I don't have a weekend gunite scheduled we can make any ride within a few hundred miles of Houston.

See ya,
Kelly

That's awesome, Go ahead and subscribe to this thread and I'll let ya'll know something soon. It all depends on this weekend when I go check out the place I'm going to school at. If it's what I expect, count me in.

@ Ol dog big balls: Once I get there and get settled in, I'll be explorin, so I'll be sure to send a message ur way. Also, I've always wanted to do a track day so, so that'll be great.

@ danger443 & Gilbert: Sounds great, I heard that area had some great riding spots which I'm eager to learn. Theres nothing but straight road here.

@ Huskyrider: Don't sweat it, I usually ride with friends who just got their bikes to make sure they don't do anything stupid and keep an eye out for them, and other people who made the crossover to the sportbike world, if your anything like them, there wont be any problems and it'll be alright. That's a compliment, not an insult seeing as how most of them are level headed and mature enough to get on one in the first place, incase you were wondering.

I am in SW Austin... Near where 45 and 1826 intersect....

I've found a few roads that I ride once in a while, but it would be cool see where the good roads are.

Not quite sure, all I know is that Austin is huge. I'll find out around which area I'll be when I go this weekend.
