New guy from the far west side

What's up?

I've had the itch for a bike for quite a while even though nobody in my family rides, and only a few of my friends have. Took a MSF course a few months back and found a SV650S on CL 4-5 weeks ago.

I've only been riding it to the gym and back lately to get a feel for it. I want to put a new set of tires on it since I'm pretty sure they are still OE and the rear has a good flat strip causing me some cornering unease as compared to the TU250X for the MSF class.

Are there any good tire shops on the W or NW side of Houston? College Station would be fine also.

I really want to take it by Motorcycles Unlimited or 2 Wheel Toyz but I'm not completely comfortable taking it onto the freeway in Houston just yet.

Hopefully I'll have time to start making some rides and get to know everybody and improve my skills.

Or, plan a route to Motorcycles Unlimited while avoiding hwys.... when heading to magnolia/tomball I generally take fry rd just for a change of scenery. Though, it's still a long ride.
