Hello from the Galleria area

Hey there everyone. To start off, my name is Mike, and I am 32 yrs. old (DOB: 12/25/1975)...yes, I'm an X-Mas baby. :P For those of you into Astrology, that want to know my personality traits, I was born at 1:01 am in Houston, TX. I've lived most of my life in Pasadena, but spent about 5 yrs. in Vermont when my dad got remarried for the 4th or 5th time (he was a man- --heh). I consider myself an easy-going person, but I do have a tendency to use a lot of profanity...force of bad habit. heh

As for my correlation with motorcycles, I've pretty much wanted to own one since I was in 3rd grade (the first time I ever saw one...it was a Kawasaki Ninja --I don't remember which type-- when my dad moved us to Vermont). As time progressed, I found myself leaning more towards wanting a "low-rider" as opposed to sport bikes. Until recently, I had never really riden a motorcycle (once when I was 17 for about 5 min., and once about 2 weeks ago in a parking garage for about 20 min.). I say recently, as I just took the MSF Course at AWESOME Cycles this past weekend...IT WAS THE MOST F#@KING FUN I'VE EVER HAD!! The Rider Coaches (as they are referred to) there definitely make learning to ride an enjoyable experience (Kim, David (D3), David "Landing Strip", and Debbie -- Sorry about not mentioning the other instructors as I did not meet them). If you are looking to take a course, I highly recommend AWESOME Cycles.

I've wanted a Honda Magna for awhile, but they stopped selling them in 2005...I may still get one just cause I like them a lot. As for brand new, I've been looking at the Honda Shadow Spirit 750 (the VT750C2 one).
