New rider...

Well, I just ran into a guy by the name of Aziz (hope I spelled that right) at the gas station by my place, he was riding a blue Ninja ZX-6R and commented on my 250R, so we got to talking and he pointed me over here.

I've only been riding for a few months, but I'm already getting bored with the 250's power and looking to step up to a 600 soon.

I've been itching to get on the track so bad, so you'll definitely be seeing me at future track days.

Thanks for the welcome everyone, I didn't think this place would be as popular as it is, but apparently there are more riders in Houston than I originally thought.

Welcome to MH the bike community in houston is pretty big just stick around a while. I stayed on a 250 for about 4 months would have been longer but I blew the motor, take your time learn all you can and make your mistakes a 250 is alot more forgiving than a 600. Once again Welcome.

250s are great bikes to learn on especially on curvy roads
