Just moved from Nebraska

Hey

I just moved to Houston from Lincoln, NE. My bike is still up there (a V-Star 650). I'll be riding it down in a couple of weeks.

I'm selling my V-Star and will be shopping for a new bike, something more suited for Houston. The top speed on my V-star is disappointing, and probably makes riding in Houston unsafe. I'd like to get something faster but still appropriate for daily commuting and an occasional freeway trip up to Nebraska to see family. The SV650 is at the top of my list at the moment.

Anyways, hope to ride with some of you folks sometime.
