Ok so I live in the woodlands and I was told about this website by a guy that came into my work. I had been lurking around on here and got some really good info from the site, so i signed up. A little about me I'm 22 always been into cars and liked motorcycles just never owned one. I currently dont own a bike yet but I have been riding a few in closed areas. I plan on buying a Kawasaki Ninja 250r but before doing that I will be taking the MSF course then I will be trying to get insurance that is affordable being that I am not 25 yet my insurance sky rockets. So if anyone knows a good place and agent in my area let me know. My reason for a bike is first off gas is ridiculous right now so thats the major thing but i would like to be able to ride on nice days or during times of stress to relax me. This will be my main mode of transportation ( i know probably not smart to some of you but cant afford to buy a new car at the moment) I live within my means and a bike is something i have wanted for a while, as i will be doing the right thing wit the MSF course, insurance and M licensing. Hope to maybe meet up with some of the people on this forum and possibly make some new friends.

Welcome! you can also if you like not rule out an older 600 or 500. they dont have quite the power of the new ones and are an easier transition, for instance my girlfriend after taking the MSF bought a Ninja 650R and it's power is slower then most 600's and has been doing just fine and this is a year later.

Welcome to the forum!
I was 18 when i bought my first streetbike. It was a 95 Honda CBR 600F3. I financed it from stubb cycles threw Household finance. Thier rule is if your under $10,000 you can run liability insurance! I did that with the added theft insurance. Very affordable!

Welcome to MH. I'm in Spring... Very close to the woods. Come out and ride, we set it up evey weekend just about. Also, check out the site sponsors for you ins. they can hook you up. I believe State Farm is going to have the best rates. If you buy a brand new bike don't skimp on the full coverage IMO.
