Hello Everyone.

Hey guys,

Just bought my first bike and I am brand spanking new to riding. I will be taking my classes at Awesome Cyles this weekend, before I even think about taking my baby out anywhere aside from my neighborhood (or above 20mph for that matter). My friend was/is a member and told me this is a cool site. I have already looked at the "bikes for sale" listing from here before, but did not want to join until i actually owned a bike. After i get more practice I'm sure I will be looking to meet up and ride. I'm sure soon enough I might meet some of you guys personally, until then.


WHAT'S UP!?

Make sure you tell them that you are a MotoHouston member BEFORE they start registering you.

I went to Awesome Cycles for my 2 day course. Great group of Instructors there! We even practiced in the rain, it was sooooo hot, so we loved it. Debbie was my Instuctor. She is great and easy to work with.
