Welcome to MotoHouston. Lots to see and do.

Great place to ask lotsa questions. Watch out for the smart-, they are our resident idiots, you'll get 3x more (useless) responses from them, but plenty of good people to make up for them otherwise.
I have a bike similar to yours and that blue has slowly grown on me over time.
Gixxer douchebags rule bro.

Don't be a stranger... join the rides, make the meets, visit the sponsors, wear your gear, don't become a douche and make sure to contribute info when you can!

Enjoy!
