New rider, I-10@Gessner

I just got my license and don't have bike yet.
Since I decided to start small, I will get 250 and then in a year or two move up.
I am motorcycle shopping now, is there anything better???

I will report back once I have a bike

Welcome to MH and yes a 250 is a good starter bike. I did a month worth of research and found this to be true. I was in a position $$ wise to buy a new 300 but a good used 250 would be awesome. Beware of some CL posts ... if in doubt take it to a shop for check before buying. There are some sponsors listed in the forum that will do this for nothing or next to nothing just mention you are from MH. I was even offered by some members here to go with to look if I needed. Very good group of guys/gals here. You found a good place.

Thanks for the advice Rowdy!

I am thrilled we have local Houston forum with so many active users.
Looks like a great asset.

Welcome! The 250 is an excellent choice or if you want just a little bit more power the 300 is also an option.
