New guy here.

Hey all. Just found out about this place from a guy on H-I.com. Just got a 2002 CBR600 F4i. First sport bike, but I've had Harley's and scooters before (Yamaha and an Aprilia). Taking it easy right now and trying to get comfortable on the bike. Hopefully taking the safety course in a couple weeks. I'll get some picks of the bike tonight and try to post 'em up. It's got about 2300 miles on it, about 200 of which i put on it. Needless to say, it's in pretty good shape. Looked nicer once I washed it and got all the cobwebs off.

Anyways, thought I'd say hello and introduce myself. I'm a bit out of the way from Houston, living about 2.5 hours away, up near Lufkin. I come down to Houston every so often though, and I do plan on taking the bike down there one of these days.

I'm fixing to make a post (as soon as I can find out the appropriate forum) to ask for gear advice. I've got a KBC helmet, but I need a new one, and probably pick up a leather jacket soon. Anyway, more info will be in the post.

Hi!

Thanks guys!

Yeah, the guy I got it from bought it and rode it off and on. He works at a Harley shop up here in Nacogdoches, and I think he just never got into it. Traded him an old Harley FXR we had sitting here in our shop building. My wife is the Harley girl, but I've always been more a fan of speed (hence the STi and other imports I've owned). It's got a few scratches on the paint, but look to be just slow or stop drops, very minimal. Runs like a dream so far, just need to get it in the shop this week and change the oil and re-lube the chain. Oh, and I need a new bar end. lol Right side one came unscrewed in mid-flight somewhere.

Good luck finding the gear you mentioned. Lots of for sale items and good advice about where to find what you need is on the board.

Ooops! And girl!

Thanks. I made a post in the gear section, and I've been doing a little searching in there. Seems the popular opinion is that Icon is junk, but I was kinda leaning towards them mainly because the cheap KBC I have right now fogs up bad, and that breath deflector seems like it'd help. I'll keep researching though.

ROFL. I was trying to remember if that was you or not. Aaaahahahaha!

Is that laptop still around? lol I've got a bigger collection of vids now, and the wife seems to enjoy 'em too.

Ah man, brings back memories.

BTW, when are some decent meets in Houston? I'm planning to come down one day this week. We were planning on driving down on a weekday, but if there's gonna be a decent meet this weekend we may just come down then. Then I have to figure out if I'm going to ride and the wife drives the truck, or figure out how to get the bike ON the truck and bring it that way.

We shall see!


P.S. Judging by your avatar, my vids helped you a bit!

Thanks Chris. Glad I found this spot. Looks like lots of friendly people and good info.

We'll definitely have to go ride soon. I just checked the calendar and it looks like there's nothing much going on this weekend. We were wanting to come down during the week though, and it looks like there's the MH meet (at Vito's?) next Tuesday. Might just wait until then and come down. Only problem is the 2.5 hour drive back late at night. Might have to check out hotel rooms in the area and make a night of it. lol We'll see what the wife has to say, but I'll make it down there one of these days soon.

Looks like I might be riding the bike down there Thursday. Gonna call Motorcycles Unlimited tomorrow and make sure, but hoping to get in there that day and get an oil change and hopefully get the seals redone on my front forks, and shop for some gear.

Anything going on that day? Might crash in town and hang out Friday too, just depends on my buddy Chris and what he's got going on.
