Been lurking long enough

Just thought I'd finally introduce myself. My name is Fred and have lurking here for a few months. I am 44 and have been riding since i was 11. Currently I have a 96 CBR900RR, 03 VTX1800R, 81 KZ1100, and an old CR250 that my son and i ride. I just picked up the CBR a few months ago. I had an RF900 that I bought new back in 95 and only kept about a year. This is my first sport bike since then but have had around 35 bikes since i was a kid.
I live in Texas City

all right then. I will get some taken and posted. Mine is nothing special. Bronze color with a windshield, saddlebags, Mustang seat, louder pipes, open type air filter, desmogged, and a power commander. Oh yeah, I have a 200 on the back.

I have to admit, it is fun to open the garage and go "eenie, meenie". The VTX I can ride all day without any aches. It is like getting in the recliner after getting off of the CBR
