  • Hello From Texas

    I'm in the Dallas/Ft Worth area, and looking forward to the new board. It's so nice not to have to be "silent" any longer

          Just wanted to Howdy from a fellow Texan. I'm also a DFW metromess-er (Irving in particular). Looking forward to getting started on a new site, like a breath of fresh air.

            I ride through your fair city every morning, on my commute from North Richland Hills to Dallas. Typically, either the NRH/Hurst/Euless mess will slow me down with the construction and traffic. But if I get through that fast, I can usually count on 183 in Irving to finish the job of making me late. The only positive thing about DFW traffic is that I get to view it on the 'Wing!

              Just saw your reply hparsons, Thanks! I too am an everyday rider as my bike is my chosen mode of primary transportation. Some friends & family think I'm nuts for riding in this DFW traffic every day but it sure beats the heck out of driving a cage every day. And you're so right, you can't beat the view from behind the windshield of a Wing!

                I have a few comments from folks about the traffic (typically, they're from other bikers who feel like they're a constant "target"); but the question I get most is:

                What do you do when it rains?
                I get wet
                Yeah, but then what do you do?
                I dry off

                Then I actually explain to them. If it's just light to normal rain, I just ride on. It really does dry off pretty quickly. If it's heavy, I gear up and stay reasonably dry. If it's a storm, and I'm leaving to go to work, I hop in the truck, drop my wife off at her job, then head out. If I'm coming from work, I ride through, and change clothes when I get home.
