New Rider

Hey All,

Introducing myself, I'm Juan, 26, from the KLEIN area, and I have a Honda CRF250L which is my daily commuter now (62 mile round trips) 230 miles logged so far. I have no prior riding experience and I am still a newb at this. I did however take the MSF course. Any tips on riding in Houston traffic is appreciated.

Welcome to the forum. I second riding like everyone is trying to kill you.

But seriously pay attention out there. I like to ride far left lane so no cars are on my left. Make sure you keep an eye ahead of the car in front of you for road conditions and if you have to slam on your brakes try to position yourself where you wouldn't be squashed between two cars if the car behind you is on their phone.

I actually try to watch 2 cars ahead. That way you can anticipate anything before the girl on facebook looks up from her wall feed.
