Just Retired And Ready To Ride.

I retired a while back and my wife told me to get the out of the house and do something, so I decided to buy a bike. I live in Tomball and have several friends tell me the only way to see the sights is on the back of a big 2 wheeler.
I look forward to some rides with some wonderful people!

Welcome to MH. Although were mostly sportbikes, there are some cruisers around here. And you should look into some noob rides. The pace of noob rides (speed limit) will allow you to keep up and you'll get to see some of the routes we ride.

Welcome! You might consider a sport touring bike, something that will actually accelerate, turn and stop well. Yamaha FJR, Kawasaki concours 14, Bmw K1600 or just go full touring Honda Gold Wing.
