Less than an hour away, you’ll find miles of sunny beaches at the Gulf of Mexico. Take a day trip to Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth to catch NASCAR racing.

Houston, TX 77073-5515

Like i said.. Talk to Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited. He could teach you this in a very short time, especially if you already know your way around a motorcycle.

Don't waste your time at UTI..MMI. how do i know.. I went for 2 years in Phoenix.
The majority of what they teach is basics. We actually spent a week and got tested on basic tools... screw driver, pliers, wrench it was embarassing.

Where is China, Tx? Do you have a mechanic background? I wish you luck in your endeavors!
