New License, New Bike

Hi ! My name is Stuart and I am a bikeaholic !!

But seriously, I live in Katy had a busy weekend at the end of August.

Sat/Sun MSF class
Mon Trip to the DPS for license
Tue Yamaha Dealer (why aren't they opened on a Monday ??)

Bought a 2009 Raven black FZ6 and have spent 2000 miles or so since just getting used to the bike. I am still extremely cautious when riding, but I don't think that is a bad thing. My instructor told me that my bike will lean far further than my brain will allow and I am slowly beginning to believe him.

Grabbed too much front brake at a stop light with about 300 miles on the bike and dropped it on the pavement so I have my first scratches on my bike and gloves, but other than that I am having a blast.

PS Don't tell my mum that I bought a bike. She'll kill me !!
PPS I am 47 years old, but that won't stop my mum !!
