A good place to see what's going on in Houston is http://www.houstonmotocross.com . Other tracks you may be interested in are Highlands, 290 Cycle World, and Splendora. All of the tracks are listed on the HMX.com site. There are several motorcycle shops around town that also carry gear; but, you'll probably find the most variety at the Cycle Gear stores as already mentioned. Do you know what part of Houston you'll be staying/working? I don't have a spare MX bike that I could let you use (they are all CR500s set up for my weight) but if you're interested in hitting some trails one weekend, I have a XR400R you could use. We've got a good trail system in the Sam Houston National Forest you'd probably have a great time at. Only thing is it's still summer here and I don't know how you might do in our heat. http://www.fs.fed.us/r8/texas/recreation/orv_info_ang_dc_sab.shtml

It would be a pleasure if I could but unfortunately, short of a miracle happening my shoulder won't be better. But thanks for the offer:applause: .:) .:D . Suffered a level 3 seperation last week. The heat would be fine though been working in the middle east for the past 3 and a bit months throught the night when the humidity is usually above 80% and in the 100's like houston.

A few of the guys that were working with me were from your neck of the woods and they were telling me all about the humidity you guys have most of the year.

Thanks for the reply guys.

Regards Kevin.
