Noob in Iraq, introducing myself

Whats up everyone. This is a great site I found. I am currently deployed in Southern Iraq with 1 BCT 82nd Airborne, and as soon as I get back my present to myself goes like this:

1. MSF course
2. 250 "sportbike"
3. Gear
4. Time to get to know the bike

Eventually my goal is to upgrade to a cbr600rr or similar and become a track junkie. I've only rode a bike once, it was a buddies katana and it was just in a parking lot. So I am definitely not going to go crazy at first, nor on the streets, I figured if I survived a year of being shot at I don't want to eat it on the streets of Houston doing something dumb.

Anyway if anyone has any links to info on what to look for when buying a used bike that would be awesome. I look forward to posting here and getting into the scene and on to the track.

welcome and come home safely and soon! I am glad that you are thinking maturely about riding. Oh and btw, there was a guy in the MSF class with me from army and he said that they paid for his MSF- it could be a general military safety policy - find out - it may save you ~$200
