I'm a new rider, 40 yrs old and I finally got my first bike, which I looking forward to ride next weekend when I get all the required paperwork. I have a lot of negative comments from everyone though, about how dangerous is driving a bike in Houston. I moved from NY 10 years ago, and drivers were not as bad as they are here, even more surprising is to know that even though Texas has the second largest number of bikers, there is no respect for motorcycles in the highways.
So, I would like to hear it from you guys.

Welcome to MH! The negative comments are usually from those who don't even ride bikes. My old neighbor went on and on about how dangerous it is to own a bike and ride it, but he never owned or rode one in his entire life... then you'll have the aggressive disrespectful motorcyclist who are always claiming they were almost killed because a cager switches lanes and cut them off... only to discover they were doing 90-100 mph lane splitting and zipping through traffic with complete disregard to others.
If you keep your lane, drive in your comfort level, and respect the roads... you'll be good
