I'll try to help, fire away & welcome. 

thanks friend.  My most pressing question has to do with waste disposal.  Is there a good spot near downtown Austin for unloading out toilet?  

Hope you managed to find a place,  especially in downtown. Some Love's fuel stops have dump facilities. Good luck

I'm sorry but if you paid for this site you got robbed! It's the most difficult and not user-friendly site that I've seen in years. Please try to simplify answering comments for starters. I get an email notification that so & so made some comment pertinent to me, but when I log into the site I can never find that comment. Now I may be doing something wrong but this isn't my first rodeo. 😡

Hi we have had a RV for about 10 years but always kept it parked on our land. We lived in it while building our forever home in  the Blue Hills of Northern WI. We recently bought a brand new one so that we can start traveling and enjoying life. Our children are grown and gone and we are anxious for the next chapter of our life and meeting new friends!

I probably am the odd man out here, I ride a vintage 1995 Honda CB750 Nighthawk. I have never personally wanted a Harley, and the inline four Hondas are pretty much reliable as a stone.

Hi Herb, I'm  Mike.  I started in 1976 with a Honda 550, in 1978 I went with a Kawasaki 650. Long story short in 1987 I rode my brother's FXRT.  In 1988 I bought a leftover 1986 Aspencade. Then I saw a 1976 Kawasaki 9oo and bought it too. My brother wanted a BMW  so I bought his FXRT ans found I liked all 3 for different reasons.  I crashed the Goldwing, sold the Kawasaki and rode the FXRT till it needed work but $ was tight. Parked for 13 years I'm having it fixed and it's for sale at 6k. Only 1250 made but we want some travel $ to fund us with our 20' travel trailer behind my 2016 Explorer.  You are not an odd man out. Be safe, stay well brother. 

Sorry guys, double posted, thought the first one got dumped.

Thank you, Herb.

Hi Mike, I started riding in 1972 at the age of 12 on a Honda Trail 70, by 1974 when we moved back to AL I got my motorcycle permit and was riding a 550 Suzuki to school every day. Rode pretty much all the time until I joined the Navy in 1984. My ex bought a Nighthawk 550 in 1991 while I was on patrol, surprised me with it when I got home. I rode until 1995 and sold the Nighthawk. Didn't sit on a seat again until I bought the 750 on December 24, 2023. I love the bluetooth helmet microphone and speakers. Praying that you sell the FXRT for top dollar, and enjoy your travel money. A guy I have been helping with an electrical project just got his Honda Valkyrie shipped down here from NJ. I think the best bike on the street you can buy new is the Triumph Rocket Triple. I love to ride, wish it was safer. Anyway, I am heading out on a cruise in March with a Navy buddy. First cruise since 2012. Looking forward to it. I did 12 patrols on boomers (balistic missile submarines) for our rich Uncle Sam, but cruising on Royal Caribbean is just way different. Thank you for the well wishes, maybe one day we can meet up somewhere.

Thank you, Herb.

Hello,

 

My name is Chris. I live in Central Florida. I just purchased my second camper after 15 years with a Jayco 1206 Pop-Up. Our family of 8 (6 kids) outgrew it and we just purchased a Rockwood 233S.

Mostly here to identify large family friend camping as it is a challenge to camp with 6 as a lot of campgrounds will not accommodate us.
