North Houston NOOB

Hey all, long time gear head; first time for bikes though.

I am signing up for the BRC and will take an Expert rider's course as well WHILE WEARING PLENTY of gear. No squid here.

Im in Spring/North Houston Area. Havent purchased a bike yet, want to wait to see what's comfortable. But have narrowed it to:

GXSR600
ZX6R
R6

Thanks for the welcomes that will come and hope to contribute as much as I learn from the forums.

Welcome to the site, im in your area. Those are some fast first bikes be careful. Also from what hear its better to just take your bike to the track than to take the expert rider course.

Spring Area riders, maybe we can meet up sometime so I can gather some of your expertise and shoot the shet.

Once it becomes a consistent temp outside there will be plenty of meets everywhere.

OK, completed my BRC (had to reschedule to Apr10-11) at Awesome Cycles.

Been "whoring" around sitting on a bunch of bikes.

Undecided between-
GXSR600
Kawasaki ZX-6r or 650 (like the riding position better)

Really liked the cruiser position. Im sure it's like finding your next car, as soon as you'll sit on it, you'll know.

If I went cruiser_
Honda VTX 1300 or stateline
Suzuki Bolt r spec

Weird, I know...but having a hard time.

I like the gsx-r600 and vtx1300. I'm a sport bike rider first, but sure wouldn't mind having both types in the garage. You looking at new or used?
