New to MotoHouston from H-I

Hey guys and girls! whats up?

I am new here, iv always wanted a bike but parents have always been against it... Now i have finally convinced them to let me get my license and MSF class...
Im planning on taking it at Awesome Cycles sometime this month or next month. I havent really riding a bike before except for my friends ninja 250 around the street a little.
I am a regular on Houston-Imports.com and some of yall might know me from there...
Iv read around a little and i plan on finding a Ninja 250/500 as a beginner biker then moving upto something bigger...
Main reason for going for a bike is because the gas prices are going wayy to high and paying for gas isnt too easy.

Anyways i just wanted to introduce myself and hope to learn alot from motohouston....

oh and my name is Vi
