Smile Hey MotoHouston!!


Hey guys, I am a new member as of 7 a.m. this morning!

I am new to motorcycles, and have only been riding for about 9 months now. I started off with a 2008 Ninja 250r; bought it the next day I took my MSF at Awesome Cycles. They are an awesome team of great instructors and really helpful people in general.

I grew out of my 250r pretty quickly and upgraded to a 2007 650r. I do miss the 250r because of the way it handled. And, I just sold my 650r today as well. So now needing another MC.

I am looking for a ZX6r, cbr600, R6 (06 and up) or a GSXR, basically all the 600 CCs. I don't want a very aggressive riding position, at the same time, don't want something like the 650r (almost upright). So I need your opinions as well.

Thanks for such a warm welcome guys!!

I actually got to check out a gixxer and a cbr today. I like the CBR's position, but was wondering if the seat gets too hot cuz of the exhaust?
