Texas Roll Call (and anywhere near TX)

Calling all Texas riders. Several Houston/Central TX area WT'ers are talking about meeting up for a ride in the next couple of weeks, and there have been quite a few riders that have chimed in from the area. I was excited to see this much Texas activity, and started wondering about the possibility of a WT Shindig - TX edition. If everyone could post up whether they would be interested or not and add themselves to the WristTwisters Frappr Map we can try to find a central point that would be good for everyone.

If you don't want to add yourself to the Frappr just let us know what area you are near, so we can use that when looking for the central locations.

Ideas are welcome...

Shawn

Any good sources for used parts in austin/houston? I've tried the few places I've found online for the parts I need, but no luck short of going new.

I didn't see this until just now! Of course i'm in for a Tx Edition Shindig! I say Fayetteville, or maybe up towards the La Grange area (that's the 1/2-way point for the MS150).

Tomball's only about 30-40 minutes NW from central Houston.

And you'd be about 1-1/2 hours away from Fayetteville, which is the same as from SA or Austin.

Fayetteville seems to be the best central spot between these 4 areas (Austin/SA/Houston/Tomball), but still far from Dallas.

I can do this on these dates: Jan 12 & 26th, or Feb 9 or 23 (Saturdays).

For some reason I'm procrastinating on buying parts, for some reason I'm under the illusion I can get it done for cheaper than what I can really get it done for hehe

Have you tried watching on Ebay? People keep parting out whole 9'ers fairly often.

I finally bought something! Picked up a set of chrome gauges for about 1/2 of retail! Thank you e-bay! Now if I can find a flywheel and a tank I'll be just about ready to ride again.
