How far is that from sherman? Do you ride solo or with a group?

I am not from here and have only been here 2 years so I dont know many people.(my husband is from here and knows a few people but they dont go out much)

Inbox me at yamachicken@rocketmail.com if you ever wanna go for a ride somewhere in the middle... Do any of the buffalo wild wings here do bikenights?

Cool

Sherman is a bit north of DFW and Addison, but there are some good backroads not far from you in the Bonham and Whitewright areas.

Check out some of the local riding groups. I ride some with TSBA and one of the long time members lives in your area.

Go here: http://bbs.tsba.org/

Also check out the "squadron" section on this board. I believe the Ghostrider squadron has a DFW group.

Thanks Huck, I work in Bonham and ride in when the weather permits. I generally stay too busy to check the forums too often but ill look and see if anything is going on locally. Thanks!

I just saw this post. Like R1nStang said, we have a group which is affiliated with our "Ghostrider Squadron" in the Squadron section of the forum. Our first meet and greet on April 3rd was a success and within the next week or two I will be posting a date for our next ride/get together.

Look forward to meeting you and riding in the future!

There is a bike night/gathering comprised of a mix of bikes at the Blue Goose on Midway (a block south of Beltline Rd.). They meet every Tues night.

The meet on the 3rd was at a Schlotzky's Deli located at 1801 S. Main St, Grapevine, TX (near SH 121 and HWY 114). It was a central location for us coming from the areas of Denton, Dallas, Ft Worth, Arlington, Ft Worth, etc. We had lunch and went for a nice ride. Here is a pic (cell phone quality):

Nice! i guess my 98 would be the senior citizen in that group!! haha. I really like the White R1's though.

I know where 121 is so maybe I could make it. I posted my email address so you can inbox me when y'all get together or I can PM you my number, I work nights so i'm free most days.

No problem. You and your husband should look into joining us for next months ride. We have another female (R1nStang's girlfriend) who meets with us and was riding two up with him, but I believe she may be getting her own bike for the future. Great group of friendly and safe people.

Sounds great, just let me know when and where and I will let him know. Ive been riding for about 13 years now(I taught my husband) So I dont do any backseat riding. I have another girlfriend who has a cbr600rr that I meet up with some but she is in Texarkana so its a long way for us to meet. So is this group strictly yamaha's or do you guys let in the outsiders too(haha)

LOL! I didn't think you rode back when you have your own R1. That's cool that you taught your husband. We definately let other bikes in and encourage friends of the group members to come join us. We keep it safe and ride at a safe pace for all to enjoy so even if your fairly new to the sportbike world you can enjoy our rides. There is a time to be aggressive, stunt, etc, but for us it is not when were on our group rides because we don't want anyone hurt or bringing a bad name to our "Ghostrider Squadron" or being another "squid" group in N. Texas.

haha! Well.. I did want to clarify, I am from TN and there alot of females put a claim on the mans bike, ya know.. even at work I am asked "is that your husbands bike?" lmao. He has been riding for 4-5 years now too ..... he started out on the 98R1. For lack of a smaller bike to learn on but it was pretty beat up cosmetically back then so no biggie.
