Hello from Chicago

So ive been riding for about 10 years now. I mostly street ride but i just did my first track day a few weeks ago on my S1000rr and I fell in love all over agin with motorcycling. After i did my first track day i went out and bought my self a dedicated track bike. I purchased 2007 Triumph Daytona 675 (the BMW is a bit too much for me on the track).

I work as a Helicopter mechanic (Blackhawks). Ive been doing that for about 5 years now and I love it!

Like i said Im from Chicago and Im looking into a job opportunity in Houston and I was wondering if you guys can give me a little guidance on where I should be looking for an apartment. Im 28 and I have no wife/kids and Houston will be completely new to me. Im looking to move around a cool "hip" area where I can potentially meet new people since once again I dont know anyone in Houston.

Well thanks for helping and I hope to be riding in Houston soon.

Thing about Houston is that you have to drive/ride everywhereee. "Midtown" sounds like what you are looking for, its inside the city. Bikes do get stolen though, I'd be nervous about that 1000 at an apartment

EDIT:
This may help you lolololol

Welcome. My fiance used to stay int he 610 Post Oak area. There's an apartment called Gables Post Oak, really nice place and it's locked down like Ft. Knox. Never had my bike or anyone else's stolen.

re: "old" houses. Old house in Houston means its more than 30 years old.

When moving to Houston its important you select an area to live in that is not too far away from where you work. That map represented a two hour commute from north to south of the map and west to east during rush hour. Maybe even more.
