New to MotoHouston

Hello everybody:
I have been riding motorcycles for about 5 years. I ride a Candy Red 2008 Yamaha FZ1.

My first bike was a 1982 Kawasaki KZ650 CSR. I rode that bike from Houston to California, with a group of 8 others motorcycles. Did the PCH1, and 101 from Malibu to San Francisco, then to Napa Valley, and back to Texas. 4,400 miles in 9 days. Wanted more power, so got the FZ1, but still have the Kawasaki. Have also owned a 1984 Honda Nighthawk 650, and a 1977 Honda CB750F Supersport four.

Rode the Yamaha to Tennessee - Did the Tail of the Dragon; Cherohala Highway; Moonshiner 28; Blueridge parkway; Foothills Parkway; Bridal Veil Falls; etc. Stopped in the Barber Motorsport Museum in Birmingham, AL. Highly recommended for motorcycle enthusiasts.

I recently rented a Kawasaki Concours 14 out in Seattle, WA. Rode all around the area, around Mt. Ranier, etc.

I ride to work a few days per week, and like to ride on the weekends with others who have naked sport bikes, or similar.

That sounds awesome! Always wanted to find some time and do the Texas-California trip! Hope I get to do it sometime.

Anyways, welcome!
