WOW After watching this I have discovered I am a TEXAN! I have been to nearly all the places mentioned in the video. I have been to some places not mentioned, also.

Orange to Brownsville on the coast, Lumberton wasn't mentioned. Although I havent been to Muleshoe yet.

Ya, you think of Muleshoe as that big, fancy, glamorous town it is now. When I was 18 I went with a bud out there to visit his grandparents. Why, Muleshoe was just a dot on the map. When we were leaving, his grandpa told us to stop at the (only) gas station and fill up, his treat. All we had to tell the gas station attendant that Ed said to fill up on him. They put it on his account.

Pretty good video, there was one last year same theme, same song done by a Harley rider.


I'm proud to say I've been to and recognize quite a few of those places,
and I've just seen a couple I need to go and find

I do have one minor "bitch" about Texas.

I like to ride those deserted farm roads out there in west Texas,
several times I've rode 20-40 miles down a road and suddenly the pavement just ends,

would y'all get it together and post some pavement ends in xxx miles signs
for us tourists please.

Hey, Hans... yeah... that would be nice.. then again, most folks hardly notice in their F350DDL's (Ford F-350 model, Diesel dual-lee's...) For them it's either "hard surfaced" or the Gulf of Mexico.
