New rider from Cypress

Hey everyone, I just got my license and my SV650 just days ago. I'm new to riding and still learning a lot of things.

I'm looking to hook up with some other riders from the area to ride with on evenings/weekends. I'm new to the area so it would be great to find some good roads to ride on around here.

How many of you are from the NW area? Is there a spot where everyone from the area goes to meet up?

Welcome to MH! There are good roads out there, just need to be careful. Two of us are riding tomorrow if you want to explore. Meeting at 10am at the Buckees off of 290 and Muschke. Safety is the most important thing.

Thats good news because it's close to my house! I'm just a few exits down off huffmeister. The bad news is I'm still such a rookie, I doubt I could hang with you guys. Especially in this cold. I went for a short ride today and in spite of being layered to the point of looking like the stay puff marshmellow man, I was still freezing after about 20-30 minutes.
But yeah safety is my number one concern of mine and as much as I'd like to just jump right in to meeting riders from here, I'm thinking I should get a little more.practice in before I attempt to keep up with more experienced riders.

Is buckees where you normally meet at?

Ok, no worries. Yes Buckees is the normal meet spot for north west rides. Come by, and say hello tomorrow if you have time.

There are also track days that can help you learn your bike and teach you body position. They helped me a lot, and I have a lot to learn. Just keep in mind that the street is not the track and you will be good. Take your time, and have fun.

As long as the roads aren't still damp I may just do that. I haven't ridden on the interstate yet so it would be a nice little practice run. I could meet you guys, get some coffee and then head back and have the whole day ahead of me haha...so yeah there's a good chance I'll stop by. Look for a tall guy, red SV650, black helmet.

I can meet you at Huffmeister on the way there if you like. I can be there around 0930 at the Chevron station.

Lets do that. Thats easy because my i live in the neighborhood right behind there. From there i could follow you to buckees and meet the other person. Since it's so close I could imagine I'd like to meet up often, so it'd be nice to meet a few of you. I had a couple things on my bike I wasn't sure about, so it would be cool to get your opinion also.

Sounds like a plan. See you @ the Chevron. Both Jimrad and I can change/balance tires also. Basic chain maintenance and oil changes too. Here to help the motorcycle community when we can.
