Just take it easy for your first run. The turns arent super technical or anything but the road is kind of chewed up in places.

It was good time and ill be back up there next weekend for sure... hopefully a little warmer though my ride home got a little chilly

yeah Tian, if you haven't ridden the road before, take it easy your first time. 50-60% of your ability. once you know what the turns are like then push yourself a little harder. i got decent lean but we weren't going fast enough to need to lean very far.

It'll definitely be more fun once the weather warms up.

FM-4 is an okay road if you want to make the journey to Cleburne.

How hard is it to live in Dallas minus a car? I might be relocating in June, about a 50% chance. I am cageless for now, but I'm hoping to delay getting a car for as long as possible. I'll be working near Love Field and plan on living nearby.

Im pretty new to the area(october 1) but the winter has been mild... only 2 days of winter weather so far. Rains been average.

Cant speak to being cageless as I have my truck too. But I see bikes on the road all day long going by my office.

That's encouraging. I'll be cold as I have been living in FL for two years now, but my goal is to buy a beater truck/suv in cash at the end of the year.

How do you like it so far? I'm assuming 757 means you are from the VA beach area. I lived there for and Richmond most of my life. How does it compare?

I went to ODU and lived in VA Beach for 8 years and Richmond on and off for 2. I enjoy it, DFW is a much larger city/metroplex than the 757/804 so there is no shortage of shit to do.
