Salut francais! Va prendre la classes chez awesome cycles ou a spring branch. Ok my written french sucks. Better to learn from pro's than friends and family.

take the msf course where ever... just make sure u take it...:-)
and be careful on the roads, i love riding and houston roads should be enough to make all of us quit riding...but its not going to...so just be careful out there.... my msf instructor told me alot of things, but the thing that stuck with me the most and i found to be most valuable.... expect every car u see to pull out in front of u...so be prepared for each and every car u see..

Awesome Cycles was pretty cool...

After that, you just gotta be CAREFUL around here! DPS has no stringent criteria for getting a license, living and breathing is about all thats required
