Thumbs up Sugar Land hello

Hi all, found this forum while surfing for a MC mechanic near Sugar Land. My background: rode in Jr. High and high school and college (late 60s-mid 70s). Couldn't find the time/cash/permission from wife to ride until this spring. My buddy Ed took me on a ride on his BMW RS1200, and the memories came back. Took the Awesome Cycles basic class last March, passed, concluded I still have the drive to ride, got my M endorsement, went shopping and decided on a 2007 Kawa EX 500 with 5000 miles on it. I have been easing into street riding, gaining confidence, and yes I wear and use full safety gear. Riding again is a blast!! Watch for a yellow EX500 in Sugar Land. Dream bike to come maybe next spring, we will see what that is.
Cheers to all and be safe out there!
