I'm down in Mansfield---just south of Arlington, so I'm able to hit some back country roads when I want to get out of the traffic, but you guys are right, it can get pretty hairy sometimes. Corsair---I've been to Cowboys a few times...not a regular, but Friday nights there's no cover and there's always live music! I got the Strat from American Motorcycle Trading Co. in Grand Prairie, TX....I think I got a pretty good deal, it's an 08' and has a little over 16,000 miles on it. It's been well cared for and the ride is great.
Wheels---what part of Bama? I lived in Mobile for 4 or 5 years, Evergreen for 4 years and went to college in Livingston. Used to love riding my old Honda on the back roads of Alabama and Mississippi.
