    Another reason why Texas needs its own forum ...

    I just clicked the Southeast forum and couldn't find a blessed thing on this great state and then I wondered if I was in the wrong area and sure enough, a few clicks later I realized Texas was grouped with the Southwest. Its really Southcentral or just South but I think it is better to just call it Texas.

    Who are the two ******* who voted 'No'. We must deal with dissenters harshly. Especially since we have overwhelming majority. This is a fine case where mob rule will work to perfection.


    ooops...I should read the whole thread first. Looks like the naysayers were strung up.

    I vote to rename the Southwest to "Texas, etc."

    I'm not always IN Texas, but I'm near enough to pretend.

    okay

    Since I've just stumbled across this thread & there seems to be a lot of interest (relatively speaking), go ahead and advocate for one

    Would this mean that riding info, sharing experience about the peculiarly Texan cycling adventures would be more easily found? Would anyone care what cycling opportunities there were in Bryan-College Station?

    On the other hand, you folks seem to have reasonably dominant presence in the Southwest BF forum which is better for keeping our neighbors under control...

    Yeah - I just think it would be better to organize rides and TX social events in a TX specific forum - esp. after seeing the S. California forum in action. Heck - even a TX forum might be too generalized as events in N. Texas are probably too far to be of concern for folks in S. Texas or E. Texas, ect.....

    I would say there needs to be more activity before we deserve our own forum...one to two posts a day I don't think cuts it.

    I'm a-gin-it.I an't for givin up Airezona and New Mexico to them Hippies out in Calaforina.I know we could cut Texas up into several sections--piney woods--coastal plans--hill country--tran pacos--etc and each one would be a great site---each has it's own idenity---but so does the rest of the areas in the SW forum---guess living all my life in Tx just taught me to think big--Calaforinia just needed to cut it's self down to the size they think in,that's why they needed two fourms.So I vote for BIG --the hole enchilada---sam

    Lotek and I are leaning on Joe a bit more. Hopefully we'll have some action on this soon. To be fair Joe's had his hands full recently with the server move. But never fear, we've got 2 Lone Star Mods.

    whoo hoo - thanks Cuda. I think there will be more activity once one is created and folks start talking to one another.

    I for one need to plan another trip up to Big D. And Cuda - you still need to come down here for some fun on the hills.

    Houston_Biker - You, Waterrockets and I need to go for a ride also sometime. My fitness level is at a yearly low right now so I think you guys would ride me into the ground.

    D@mn skippy - my great great great (maybe a couple more greats in there) grandfather died at the Alamo. It's how my family got to Texas. Our bloods in the soil. Least I can do to honor them is fight for our own forum!!!!!

    (k-that was overly dramatic)

    Ravenmore - come on up any time (though this weekend doesn't look to good for riding. ) and I certainly plan on heading down that direction some time soon.

    armpit

    Dear Forum Master,
    please give Texas it's own regional forum. Texas is not in the southwest. It is also not in the south. It is more like a big armpit between the two.

    I have been to multiple places in NM, and it has a few spots that are nice. But, that is pretty funny, that someone in NM would call TX an armpit. If you ever even get to TX in Summer, go sit by the Guadalupe river near Gruene until you change your mind. And yes, you will,,,,BD
