New Rider, New to forums

Hey all!

Been riding now for about 2 months. Picked up a used 05 CBR 600rr in Jan. of this year. Took my MSF course at Awesome Cycles! immediately following and have been riding daily ever since(as Houston weather permits).

I live in the Spring/Woodlands area. Let me know if any of you are interested in riding. I ride whenever, weekdays/weekends, preferably when traffic is low-moderate.

As for my bike, it needs some TLC, and since I'm a more of a DIY man, I may ask mechanical questions from those of you that are more experienced. I've already changed out sprockets and chain, successfully Planning on fluid flushes in the coming weeks and some deep cleaning all over.

Thanks!
Trev

I'm currently equipped with Full helmet, gloves, and full leather jacket(pads as well) I went with all Scorpion brand for now. Will probably mix/match or change it up later.

I'll post some pics later when I get home.

Wish I could, but I work from 5am to 5:30pm... I work 7 days at a time, so, on work days, I get maybe 1 hour to ride in the evenings, not including to/from work, but then I get 7 days off... maybe next weekend if the weather is nice

Here's some quick Pics. Bike is almost exactly as it was when i got it. Previous owner (friend of friend) had low-sided on the left side, but replaced fairings, and when doing so, decided to just spray it flat-black and put 1 coat of clear on it. Not a bad look really.

Chain and sprockets are new, unfortunately I ordered a gold/black chain instead of black/black.
