New to Houston

Hello everyone,

I am new to Houston, recently moved from Chicago. I am looking forward to this all year around riding weather, as soon as I get a bike first. I got rid of my bikes prior moving, thinking I was done with it. (Un)fortunately the silly itch came back and now I am dying to get a bike.

Other than craigslist and the "for sale" section, can anyone recommend a stealerhsip or 2 around the Houston area? It seems like there are not many bike stealerships according to the google map.

Are there any track day org? I used to ride with Nesba and STT, I think I will be going back to the tracks as soon as I get used to this heat!!!!

Sorry for all the questions, I feel like a newbie who just got his first bike again!

Thanks for the link, the 1098s caught my eye, the R1 is pretty as well.
