Galveston Newb

Hey guys
I read about this site in a newpaper article today about riders being given bad names but the stunters and stuff in houston. I read it and couldnt wait to come to the site. I am in the process of getting a bike. Rode dirtbikes since I was about 7 and now want to fully hit the streets. When I lived in Massachusetts I rode my friends CBR 600 F3 around quite a bit and now I want a bike of my own. Im waiting to find time to take MSF and get my bike. Hope to be riding with you guys soon!

It was two weeks ago (June 18th), we had a good time but very hot. What bike are you wanting to get? Ninja 250, 500?

Re: Galveston Newb

well as I stated before, the first streetbike that I took out on my own was a CBR 600 F3. I had a motorcycle license in Massachusetts and now I have to get one here in Texas (different rules/regulations) I rode my friends F3 for about 2 months when he bought his R6. I was thinkin about a Ninja 500 but I think I may just go with the 600 since I have experience and it is what I will want right away anyways. I know you guys are going to say its a bad idea but I have riding experience under my belt, yet I never owned a bike. Just had it on loan for 100 bucks a month from my buddy until he found a buyer. No spills, went quite fine. I am still gonna take the MSF course......any good locations in houston?

Re: Galveston Newb

well if your in the Galveston area, let me know of some good deals u come across with 600s. I would really like a GSX-R or CBR 600F4i. Hit me up if you ever see anything. I need about another grand and then my girl is gonna co-sign on a loan for me....or so she says haha.
