      Just accepted a job in Dallas. Moving there next month.

      Hoping to save some of my relocation bonus for a drop + downpipe!

      Any Dallas A3s want to do a GTG next month?

      What what! Welcome to Big D. Where are you going to be living, or do you know yet? If you have any questions about good places to be or anything, shoot me a PM. I'd definitely be up for a meet sometime!

      Yeah I've seen several A3s around DFW, but I don't know who of them are enthusiasts and who just happen to drive an A3. There are 2 in my neighborhood actually.

      Congrats on getting your car though! That will be a fun day You want to orchestrate a DFW A3 meet?

      Preemptive "Welcome" to Texas! I lived in Dallas for 5 yrs. back in the 80's. I get up there frequently and will even more so now, as my GF's family all lives in Rowlette (suburb east of Dallas). Get ready to enjoy summer tires year round.

      If you start missing hills\terrain, get on 35 South and head to San Antonio.

      Welcome to Dallas!
      I would be in for one.
      The other thing is Cars and Coffee is every first Saturday of the month. There are very few cars that represent Audi. We could always get ours together to have a good A3 turnout.

      Well at least there are other A3s/ Audi enthusiasts in the area. There are only a handfull of guys on the regional forums and the one or two A3 owners are only mild enthusiasts. Never actually got to meet any of them......

      I am suppose to be in Dallas by April 9th, but that probably isn't realistic. Expect some PMs from me asking about areas to live, places to hangout/ drink, and places to road bike.

      LOL good luck. I guess it depends on where you end up living. You can ride around White Rock Lake which is near downtown Dallas, but it is a flustercluck on weekend mornings. Super crowded with lots of idiots. There are a few group rides that leave from different local shops, but it's tough to get out of the city without driving somewhere first. Maybe if I can get my ass back in shape we can go ride sometime

      Maybe not "road" bike, but Plano has **** tons of long-ass, paved bike trails you could ride for HOURS through their badass park system. Hell, I think that's the best idea a municipality has ever come up with. Keeps the bikes off the ****ing roads. No offense to those of you that bike, but most of the asshats around here, and there are A LOT of road bicyclists down here, need to GTFO the roads. They expect EVERYONE to obey traffic laws but don't feel ANY need to obey themselves.

      OP, get on Google maps and scroll around Plano and check it out. "Chisholm Trail" is one you want to look for. There's also the "Santa Fe Trail" there. That will give you a good start on how to identify them on Google maps so you can see all of the trails the city offers. They are ****ing awesome.

      Yeah, there are a lot of cyclists in the Austin/New Braunfels/San Antonio area...it is prime riding terrain. Unfortunately, there are a lot of idiots that make the rest of us who obey the traffic laws look bad. It can cause a lot of animosity between drivers and cyclists, which is unfortunate. But yeah, if you can't ride your bike on the roads and obey the same laws that other people on the road have to obey, you don't belong on the road.


      In other news...we had talked about this before but never did it...we need to have a "Texas A3 Meet" and meet up in Austin one weekend. I know there are some epic roads around there to drive, and plenty of fun places for night-time entertainment

      Yah, I we had those same D-bags here in Cinci that think they rule the road. I mostly trail cycle. We have a similar trail that goes from Cincinnati to Dayton which is about 70 ish miles. I take my bike to that trail often.

      I approve a Texas meet!

      Yeah and, as I heard on the radio this morning, we now have laws that force motorists to give these asshat bicyclists 3 ft. of room when we pass them. The commercial was totally targeted at blaming motorists, too. ****ing pissed me off.

      I am a member of NTAG and this is a very active group of Audi lovers.

      I would suggest you introduce yourself and check out the calendar of events.

      LOL! Welcome to Texas! Good thing is that we have WAY higher speed limits here than you're used to. The state just raised them across the board.

      They raised it here, too. Literally just outside the San Antonio city limits on I-10 it changes to 75 MPH now.

      You talking Dallas only for now? Assuming so...I can't do 4/21. I could do 4/27 if we want to do a Friday, but probably not 4/28 or 5/5. Wedding season has my Saturdays booked up

      We can start with Dallas, but looks like there is plenty of interest to do a regional meet. Doesn't really matter what day for me, haha, I wont be busy!

      4/27 sounds pretty good. Anyone else have scheduling issues?

      Should be ok for me, I should have the car cleaned up and the summer wheels back on by then.
