    New to MOA from TX

    Hello from Friendswood, TX. I had an '03 K12RS years ago (RIP) & just got a BMW back in my garage with my recent acquisition of a '13 K16GT locally so I thought I would join MOA to see what it's all about. Looking forward to lurking & maybe attending some events. I am finding this K16 is more conducive to longer treks than my zx10 .

    Welcome to the forum!! Since you're near Houston, you have a lot of country to cover north of you on your new bike. Enjoy! And don't just lurk!

    Thanks Kurt. Yes, lots of great roads to the North East & West of me so looking forward to getting out to them, & I'll contribute, if everybody just lurked it wouldn't be any fun!

    Thanks for the welcome. That photo was taken on the I-45 feeder rd heading north about five miles north of the Galveston causeway, so thatís TX City in the background across the ďbayĒ. Nice clouds that day . Thatís a very large storage tank back there, likely hydrocarbon storage as itís TX City. Anyway, youíre enjoying nicer riding roads in ATX than I am in Friendswood/Pearland, Iíd like to migrate that way one day & try Lime Creek in on this K.

    Have been on those transmission structures in background when we were prepping for hurricane Alecia in '83. Waded to a few, flatbottom boat to more. Had a pole line down the middle that already was leaning from being in water for years on approach to causeway. There is a huge Supefund site nearby that concerned us being in water nearby after it was underwater...yuck

    Anyways, a member here lives on Limecreek. It's still a fun ride I used to do a few times a week when I lived nearby. Has built up more in population and the sheriff's dept has no sense of humor from the hotshoes bad behavior.

    Welcome from down the road in Lake Jackson Texas. You might want to join the local BMW Motorcycle Club of Houston. They have rides often. And they find some twisty roads around here. Usually north of us but still very reachable. Enjoy the bike.
