As of June 9th, 2019, the State of Texas and motorcycle clubs associated with the Texas Confederation of Clubs and Independents is officially no longer affiliated with AIM and by default has disassociated with NCOM, and further, will no longer be known as a Confederation of Clubs. This is not a decision that came easy but one that is necessary as we narrow our focus on Texas bikers, Texas legislative matters, and strengthening the Texas motorcycling community. Moving forward, we will operate under the name, Texas Council of Clubs and Independents. Our mission to you, the motorcycling community, is to operate as an organization that serves with transparency, tenacity, and efficiency; without the interference of outside individuals. Texas Council of Clubs and Independents will continue dedicating our time fighting the ever increasing epidemic of motorcycle profiling in the State of Texas while educating the public and our legislators of this constant attack on our Constitutional rights. We will continue to foster relationships with organizations and groups within the State of Texas that share our common interests.

UPDATE: The motorcycle community, both club members and independents, are showing that these sneaky, not so subtle attacks on freedom will not be tolerated. AS OF THIS AFTERNOON, HB 4017 WAS REMOVED FROM THE HOUSE COMMITTEE HEARING SCHEDULED FOR WEDNESDAY, APRIL 10, 2019. Sources in the Capitol reported a high volume of registered objections, enough to warrant pulling it from the hearing. This is because of YOUR efforts. BUT, this is no time to start celebrating. There is still time to resubmit this amendment for hearing so we are watching and waiting. For now, there will be no reason to come to the Capitol to register an objection to the amendment but as we have seen, that can change at the drop of the hat.

We are still watching HB 4236, the Body Cam amendment, and have calls in to get further clarification on the intent of the bill. This will remain a hot item to watch pending the answers we receive tomorrow.

Great job reminding that the stripping of Constitutional rights with out the benefit of due process will not be stood for by the patriots here in Texas.

All respect and don't forget,

Ride. Record. Report.

2020 Moto Guzzi V85 TT Adventure MC Commute Review

Information Liaison 0 0 Article rating: No rating

Moto Guzzi returns to the motorcycle adventure riding scene in a pleasing medium-size package with its all-new V85 TT. Designed as a retro-themed but modern-featured ADV bike, the V85 TT is for riders looking to be able to travel farther, while experiencing the classic heartbeat of Guzzi's signature transverse-mounted air-cooled V-twin.

The V85 is powered by an overhauled 853cc twin. Yes, its cylinders still poke out from both sides of the machine, but the dynamic and character of the engine are more refined than ever. Still it retains that trademark Guzzi feel that makes it feel like, well, no other motorcycle on the road.

For the first time ever, Moto Guzzi stars in this week's <em>MC Commute</em> with its all-new 2020 V85 TT Adventure.

The engine hangs inside a steel trellis-type chassis with road-competent suspension that delivers a good balance between sport and comfort. Of course, styling is a big selling point, and this Guzzi, certainly is a head turner with its throwback lines to the Italian company’s Paris-Dakar racing days.

But don’t just take our word for it; see how the V85 TT Adventure performs on the road as we negotiate mean SoCal traffic during our work week commute.
