new to the forum...

newb here... so HELLOOOO

Well, my name is Tom and I go by a different handle on other car forums. Figure get a fresh start here.

Joined MotoHouston because i just bought a new Ducati 848evo and started riding again.

I havent ridden since maybe 1998-99? That was when i owned a 98' Kawasaki ZX7-R. Before that I owned a 93' ZX7 and a 93' CBR600 F2. I maybe have 3-5yrs of total riding experience back then... just street stuff and that was at least 15yrs ago!

After riding the 848 for the first time last weekend, I classify myself as a born again newb! That 15yr hiatus mustve been long LOL!
Hopefully I get more comfortable riding it during this break in period.
Anyways, my goals are to learn how to ride my bike at the track and hopefully become decent enough to have some fun while doing it.

thanks guys for the warm welcome!
Wow, you guys have some really nice bikes too!

unfortunately, I don't have any old pics of those bikes. As for the new 848 I think I have just one pic the dealer took when i took delivery of the bike, LOL.
I'll try to post it later or take a better pic.

I did swing by briefly to a MotoHouston bike/car wash meet for one of your members last weekend. Got the invite from Joshua and Wacas.
