More Texas Air Marshals!
I've recently learned that Texas is twice as big as California ( http://letmegooglethat.com/?q=what%27s+bigger+texas+or+california%3F), yet we have only a single air marshal located in (I think) Dallas/Fort Worth. I've never met him! I've been a dues-paying member for 15+ years and still never been to a local or semi-local tech day nor barley therapy. The distances between cities make riding and meetups prohibitive and unenjoyable (think post-apocalyptic wasteland), and serve to separate Airheads into distinctly urban camps: El Paso, Austin, Dallas, San Antonio, Houston.
Why not several Air Marshals? I see that California has a similar program and California is a teeny tiny state!
Old posting Im noticing, but completely agree. Im out here in Marfa, and know several folks nearby with Airheads , but nobody is gathering or wrenching together, and as a new BMW owner I wish I had some help from locals with knowledge!
I'm in Lubbock, and there are a couple of us here. I went to a tech day in Oklahoma a few years ago and met the Air Marshal from DFW there (he came up in his car).
I agree that Texas could support East and West ABC chapters, with their own Air Marshals!
MOA, ABC, IBA# 522
Well... we are Texas after all! Maybe we should secede? Or set up a parallel shadow government? ?
I just bought a R60/2 and live just outside of Austin. Does anyone know who repairs airheads in the Austin area? If not Austin, someone great near Austin?
