New to town, not new to bikes.

Hey,

Just moved to the Houston area, Katy to be specific. I'm 32, and an engineer for BP. I've been racing motocross since I was 5, and riding street bikes for over 10 yrs. I am joining motohouston after being a member of the Utah Sport Bike Association for the last 5 years. I already miss the mountains and all the canyons back home, so I hope some of this crew can show me some good places to ride (not a nooby). I am currently on the BMW S1000 RR and barely just back on a bike after a nasty crash, Sept 2010. See the pics in my profile, if your interested. Typical cager story; cager mysteriously does not see bright orange bike (2009 Repsol) on a clear sunny day and pulls out in front of him. T boned the car doing 70...that hurt, or more like, that's still hurting. Well, looking forward to meeting some of you.

Duston

Welcome to the board dude. Roads here kinda suck. There's a weekly Wednesday Katy meet, just take a look in the Meets and Rides section.

I have a friend that works in IT at BP.

Maria Castillo. Curly hair, big .
Sound familiar?

Welcome to the boards.

There are vey few good twistie roads in the region, but we are lucky enough to have 3 tracks within ~100 miles of the houston metroplex, and 6-7 within a 5 hour drive.
