Hey everybody.

Hello everyone,

I'm a new rider, and new to MH! I registered a long time ago when I thought I was ready to ride, but obviously there were delays in life. I've been riding for almost 3 months now after taking my MSF at Awesome Cycles and buying some sweet gear, mostly just a couple days a week to work and in the evenings whenever I have an excuse. I picked up a 2009 GS500 off CL a couple months ago. I know it's an often hated upon bike, but I love it. I love riding so far, and as I've gotten older, wrenching on the car is not as fun, and I think wrenching on the bike can replace that hobby.

Looking forward to meeting up other riders, and who knows, maybe some intermediate riding classes and track days after a long while. I live in the westchase area, around gessner and westheimer. Here's my steed:

Nice to meet y'all.

Sorry for the size of the pictures... not sure how to downsize using BB code.

Thanks for the welcome! Will do. I see you're in the Woodlands... I have yet to ride on a highway, perhaps in time! Unfortunately most of my riding has been limited to commuting, definitely down to ride for fun.

Just whatever remnants are floating around in my head from high school. Which is little to none. I'm an accountant by day. However, it's getting a refresher as I try to figure out the physics behind counter steering and a motorcycle's suspension geometry. Why do you ask?

I'm currently working on a sticky throttle issue if anyone can help with that. I think it's either a gummed up carb slide or a kinked/unlubricated throttle return cable. After that I intend to ride the out of it, especially with Fall coming!

Don't worry, maxgs is just a big ol' troll. He's referencing this thread:

I saw that thread right after I replied, I figured that's why haha. I skimmed that Wired article. Way over my head. I'm content with the fact that it does lean, I won't ask why, lest the motorcycle gods revoke newtonian physics from us and we all start falling off our bikes tomorrow.

There are many more skilled riders than I, but I seem to see people get this wrong often... You don't lean to turn the bike. You give the handlebars input and the bike leans and turns. Changing your body position can affect the lean angle of the bike, yes, but you don't just lean over to enter a turn--it's about your input on the bars. I see Bevo mention this all the time. Thats about all the physics that actually matters I think.
