How goes it?

Hey everyone,

I'm 25 years old and I haven't started riding yet. I took MSF in January of this year and I'm still looking for my first bike. I need a bike by August to help with my commute to UofH and a friend of mine mentioned that this would be a great forum to look for bikes and gain some more knowledge.

I've posted a WTB thread and I've also responded to a few classifieds on here and hopefully I'll be picking up a Ninja 500 or GS500 within the coming weeks. I look forward to meeting some of you soon!

-Josh W.

Nice, got any favorite spots, or know of any places with good prices? I'm not to fond of happy hours in this area since I work in Houston. I enjoy the 1$ beers at Loggia's, or ill hit up Baker St every once in awhile.

What up! There are a ton on here... better listings then CL I think mainly due to being able to read the entire thread, but not so many 'beginner bikes.' What kind of bike are you looking for?

Loggia is where it's at man. We also do Sam's boat some Thursday nights. They have that special where you buy the glass and any drink you want is like $2 bucks... Scenery is not as nice though...
