Up and Almost Ready

Hi everyone. Joined ya'lls forum last month when my bf told me about you guys. Been reading on your forums more than participating but now that I've completed my MSF class decided I should finally say hello.

--On the sw side of town near Alief.
--Bought an 07 Ninja 250 on Fri but shall definitely upgrade to something prettier and flashier when Im more confident in my riding.
--Completed the MSF Sunday at Awesome.
--In the process of getting all my gear but man, I have to order everything online. What the heck, the stores barely have any female jackets/gloves/boots!!!
--Not yet ready for the mean streets of Houston. Well, maybe a not-so-busy-neighborhood street.

Yea, I liked two wheel toyz; got my helmet there. I've been to cycle gear on 59 and 45/west rd but haven't been to the one on edgebrook yet. U hear Honda of Houston on 290 has a big selection too. Got me going all over Houston! Lol
I'm particularly interested in alpinestars

I've had the same problem with stores not having the gear I need in inventory.
All of them can special order everything you need, and you don't have to pay for it if it doesn't fit or if you change your mind

Heyyy, I just took a ride in a neighborhood in between westheimer n briar forest. Practiced switching gear and downshifting. Also had some loops so I was able to practice turning/cornering.

This is what Ive been doing: Go to their store and try on what they have then order online. If their price is cheaper or the same as online, then I ordered there. If not......all online. Sorry local businesses...everything adds up and $20 makes a difference.
