New Member, First Time Rider

Heard about this site and decided to get into it and learn more stuff before actually getting a bike. I already know about the MSF course and yes I will take it as soon as i Get my work schedule straight.

Experience wise, the only time I rode a bike was when a Friend of mine lend me his practice bike 06 gixxer and another friend of mine who has a zxr600. I never got to higher speeds, only 40 mph. I know there's a lot more to riding than just shifting through the gears. Hence I will start at the very bottom.

I know as most of you will say, start on a 250, some start on a 600. I will take the MSF first then I will definitely be on the market depending on the bike I will decide to get.

I moved here last year around June and Im still getting used to the area. I live by the medical center off of 288.

Sorry for the long post. Just wanted to give everyone a quick background that way it's easier to give advice to me. thanks!

--- mike
