I actually know that road from my last few visits down there. Im hoping to be moving to the Joshua area this late summer/fall. Have yet to find a house down there and get this one sold up in Nebraska. Is there any small groups that ride down there?

There is a local track day junkie site. Motodfw.com. I don't ride enough. A lot of work. Would love to more.

I live in Aledo. Just go West on I-20, about 15 minutes outside of FtWorth. It takes me about 20-25 min to get to Crowley. FM 5 is good, but short. FM4 (Palo Pinto) is 30-40 miles of slab to get to, but about the best we have around here. Im heading to Northern Arkansas sometime in October, for the real fun stuff...

If you do ever make it down to the Austin area we've got some fun roads to hit up. There's one you'll probably hear about called Lime Creek Road. When people come from out of town LCR seems to be the road most have heard of and it's on their list to ride. It looks a little something like this. It's one of those roads that if you don't know it it's easy to get called out, and if you do know it it's still pretty easy to get called out.

IMHO there's better roads than this one, but this is the one most people seem to have heard about.

Looks awesome! I hope one day to make it to the state capitol.

Since you're in Dallas, if you've got a trailer or you're one of those guys who just LOVES to ride lots of miles before you get to the twisties, I cannot recommend NW Arkansas enough. It's wonderful stuff, no bad roads.

Hey guys, I just got down here a couple weeks ago. Im southwest of Fort Worth. Whats the protocol on getting a bike inspected to plate it here? We never had inspections in Nebraska. I dont have any warning lights on. And my bike has a Power Commander on it I hope wont interfere with the test. Also, I should probably get my actual motorcycle endorsement on my license. What does it take for that here as well?

Texas motorcycle inspections are basically a safety inspection. No emmissions test. Google "sticker station" and find one of these tiny garages that just crank out inspections. You roll up, show them your lo/hi beam, turn signals, and brake lights. They check your tires for tread. There is some very specific verbage on brake testing, but most of these places don't have people that ride bikes and they assume that since you arrived safely, your brakes probably work. I've never even heard of someone getting turned down for inspection because they have a stupid loud race exhaust. They usually leave that to the discretion of the local law enforcement.

Don't even bother with motorcycle shops for state inspections. Some are cool, but some nitpick to try and talk you into a service (ask me how I know... ).

Anyhow, you do that, they give you a sheet of paper and you take that along with your proof of insurance to the local tax office (not DMV) and fill out the appropriate forms. I don't know what the process for out of state titles is, or if they even require you to change it. Just google it and it should take you to the correct forms.

Question:
Will it matter that I put a kit in my headlights to have the dual low / dual high beams ?
Just curious if I needed to wire them back to stock?
