intro from a newbie

just wanted to say hello... so... hello.

for the longest time i was into import tuner cars, but my little brother invited me to take the motorcycle safety course with him. now import tuners are a thing of the past and motorcycles are my future.

i am leaning more to the sports bike side and have recently spent 200 miles riding a '06 Honda F4i. i loved the bike and think it might be a good fit for a first bike, but i would like to hear your thoughts.

i am looking forward to joining the cohorts of motohouston.

a shout out to JonEric0430 who just shook his head and smiled when i stood in his office and told him i was taking the safety course! Whats up bro!

What up Aaron, glad you made it. Welcome to the MH community.

Jet, he used to work with us but left to a different employer so now he can see the board. I still cannot view it from work but oh well.

thanks for the welcome

thanks everyone for the warm reception...

yep JonEric... i get to see the board at work!

interesting how Honda's are a love or hate thing... if the bikes are anything like the Honda cars I have had in the past, then those things are worth the extra $$

all I have been told is to stay away from Kawasaki... is this true?

others say just find a good used GSX-R 600 and you will be completely satisfied.

the trick is trying to find someone or some place to let your ride different bikes. how can I honestly know what I like if I can't take the bike around the block. All I have known is my brothers F4i and the GS250 from the safety course.

does anyone know of a sports bike rental company here in town?
