Yet another Newbie

Hi, everyone!

New rider, though lived in SW Houston for about three years now. I started off with way too much motorcycle (Katana B12), but having a blast and riding as conservatively as possible. No highway miles yet, and I'm pretty much constantly reminding myself not to race the vettes that rev their engines at me. So far I've resisted temptation. :-)

I'm mid-30's, going through a divorce, two young kids. I needed a new hobby, and it has been fantastic. Something I've always wanted to do - finally getting my chance.

Here's a pic....

One odd thing about having such a unique motorcycle (Katana 750f with a B12 engine, wide swingarm to support a beefier rear tire, holeshot stage 2, etc...) is that even though it's insured, I'm crazy paranoid about it getting stolen. Sure, I can buy another bike with the insurance money - but there basically aren't any others like this one. Oh well. :-(
