Smile DFW night ride - 9/19 on your 919

I just got a 919. Love cruising on it. Anyone want to meetup on 9/19 for a midweek cruise? 9/19 is a wednesday.

I live in North Plano, near Allen. Maybe we could pick a central location to meet up once we get an idea of where everyone that can ride that night will be coming from. I'm pretty new to the DFW area, I'd be up for meeting almost anywhere I don't need a GPS to get to... Irving, Frisco, Uptown, Grapevine, Addison, McKinney...

Anyone want to ride?

Just to clarify, you don't have to have a 919 to meetup for the ride. Bring what you got and run what you brung.

Could be interesting. Need to see if I have to work that evening, though.

I used to live in Commerce Texas and at that time I rode a 71 cb750 ( a new one). At that time there was a twenty mile separation between Dallas and Fort Worth. I used to ride back home to Syracuse NY 1,507miles in 23 hours but not on my bike. Damn I miss Texas. Hope you find some people to ride with you

I should be moving back to Texas next year - I hope 919 on 9/19 becomes a "thing."

I am still planning on riding this Wednesday night.

Anyone have any suggestions on where to meet?

I live in Plano, and know some good routes around here, but am aware that Plano may be a bit far for some of you.

I see a few Fort Worth riders here, we could meet somewhere more centrally located and one or more of you Fort Worth riders could take the lead and we could ride around FW. I am always up for seeing new sites.

Any nominations on where and when to meet? I am probably available for some riding from about 9pm until midnight-ish. I have Thursday off at work but I do have an early dental appointment on Thursday so I don't want to stay out too late.

Due to low response on this site, I posted over on DFW sportbikes forum for a ride tonight, and got some responses.

The lowdown is that this is now a "Collin County" ride covering the areas of Plano, Allen, McKinney and Frisco from 8pm to midnight or so. We have a definite start time, but an open ended finish time, so anyone can leave when they want.

We are meeting at the gas station at the southeast corner of Alma and Legacy, in Plano, not far from 75.

Meeting around 8pm ish, KSU at 8:15pm.

Come one come all!

DUDE this kills me. I grew up about one mile from Alma and Legacy. Christ, I used to take a .22 rifle and go shooting in the creeks out there about, oh, a million years ago or so.

How did the ride go, anyway?

Man it was a lot of fun. Since I didn't post this ride info on the other website until Tuesday (the day before the ride) I wasn't sure if I would get much response or not. Pretty much figured I'd be riding solo, which is fine, but I was in the mood to hang with some other people.

Anyways, 3 other riders showed up! They were really cool guys and we rode around for a couple hours then stopped at a nightspot in Allen and had a cool beverage in an outside seating section.

I left and rode home around 11pm or so, got stopped by the cops for doing 30 over in a 40 zone (didn't mean to go so fast) and the cop was really cool and after running my info to make sure I didn't have any warrants he let me go with a warning. Thanking my lucky stars on that one.

So it turned out to be a success, though I was the only one on a 919. Kinda wanted to meet some other 919 owners and ride in an area I wasn't familiar with, like the mid cities or Fort Worth, but cruising around my neck of the woods was really fun too.

Thanks for asking!

Hey Joker, I am so sorry man! I just now saw this post of yours. Wasn't meaning to ditch you, I just saw your earlier post that you were out so I went with plan b. I must have been typing up my post when you were posting yours that you were available. I would have been happy to ride with you!

Lets do it again, I'll keep you posted when I have some free time and you guys do the same. I'd love to ride around FW with some "natives" that could lead the way.

Not a problem, my wife and I took a nice ride to downtown Fort Worth but didn't stop anywhere; just rode around the city for a bit then hit the mid
Cities untill we got lost then found our way back. Was nice to be on the 919 on 9/19. Yeah we will all end up together at one point or another with our 9ers. I look forward to that day. Keep DFW 919 strong.
