Great to hear you have taken the plunge. My rig is down for service at the moment so my riding is non-existent. I was exchanging emails with another rider in the Arlington area back before christmas and we were thinking about trying to get a group of riders who live west of Dallas together and then approaching A+ Motorcycle School and trying to get them to hold their sidecar class in the fort worth area, right now they only hold it in mesquite tx and I really don't want to be driving over there if I can avoid it. Especially since I would have to take my rig over there two days in a row.
Let me know how you are making out with your rig, they are a blast to ride but its a heck of a lot different that 2 wheel riding and you do get a lot of second looks from those poor folks riding around in their 4 wheel prisons.
Btw. I live just south of your area, straight down grapevine hwy about 6 miles.

I wanted to let you know that I live in Krum (West of Denton). I have had a several rigs since 1973. Over the last 50 years if I wasn't on my rig I was on one of my two wheelers. I had an accident in 2002 that laid me up for awhile and then a fight with cancer. I am doing great now and have just recently purchased a new rig. It is coming from Washington and is supposed to be here in another couple of weeks. I would love to chat and ride together. Grapevine is not to far from me. If there is an interest e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 940-482-7266
