This section of the forum is pretty dead, but it is our own fault. All one needs to do is post up a ride or RTE to get it started . I am guilty of this.

I think most of all the motorcycle riders around here are candy asses, and can't take the heat. Now that the temps have dropped below the 80s I've seen a lot more bike out. But, of course never a Tenere to be seen. I remember it getting flatter on I-20 westbound from Ft. Worth. Now, TX-281 to the south isn't a bad ride.

Yeah, FM 4 used to be a very fun road. The congestion has killed it. And, although I still live "in the country" west of Joshua, Joshua is technically metro Ft. Worth. It's city limit to city limit all the way from Ft. Worth to Rio Vista.

And, if you've ever been to Cleburne State Park, you know it's a diamond in a goat's ass. Great campground surrounded by ordinary.

Yeah you have to get on fm4 on the other side of granbury to enjoy it. There’s alot of back roads to completely bypass granbury. If a fella knows em.

Hey Fellas. Be sure and keep wearing that full face out on the hwy. Totalled my Madstad shield and chipped helmet,headlight lens, and paint today on hwy 337 between Graford and Graham. Met 2 rock trucks at 75 mph speed limit. Immediately pulled over on the shoulder. Was on my 2012 Wing. Started to turn around and try to chase em down but I didn’t. Hate they gonna get away with that shit. Just glad I had full face on. Coulda been bloody.

. . . . Met 2 rock trucks at 75 mph speed limit. . . .
Brandon has caused all of the DPS Troopers to be sent to the border. (not an opinion, my son works with/knows several of them, and that's where/why they've been sent) And apparently, the truckers know it. I get passed daily on US 67, by rock, and tank trucks. They're traveling in excess of 80mph, in a 65 zone.
