New Rider, Downtown Area, KTM RC 390

Hey everyone, my name is Arthur, I'm a new street rider living in the downtown area, originally from France, been here in Houston for quite some time now, and I'm in the physical commodities trading business. I did my BRC (AwesomeCycles big +1, had an awesome time) and got my license about a year ago but couldn't pull the trigger on a bike because I still wasn't completely confident yet. Ended up taking another BRC recently, realized my fear of other people on the road is essentially a good thing, and bought a 2015 KTM RC 390 last week. I also drive a Subaru BRZ.

Looking forward to meeting members, group rides, etc. and am always ears open for advice, tips, etc. Here to learn!

Was this the group ride listed for yesterday the 24th? I assume these are regularly scheduled type events? Definitely looking forward to trying this, would like to get a few more miles in first though maybe.
