New(ish) to Houston

What up everyone?
Here's my quick introduction:

I've been living in Houston for 6 months now. I moved down here by myself to start a new job. It's a great city with one exception: traffic. I used to ride a silver Kawasaki ZX12R until last month when I got rear ended sitting at a stop light. Here's the carnage:
After being thrown through someones rear window I was lucky to walk away from it; I owe it all to my gear - Helmet, jacket, gloves and boots. The bike is a complete loss.

My new ride is also a Kawasaki ZX-12R; a red one this time. See it here. I'm looking forward to getting it out on the streets. Maybe people will see me this time...
I'm always up for a ride - any time, any place. Always looking to meet some cool people in the area.

That's about it for me - see you out there. Ride safe; rubber side down.

Welcome. Glad you are OK after that incident. The poor bike looks like you took a hard hit!

Where did you move from?

That meet and greet sounds good - unfortunately i don't think I can get my ride inspected, registered, and licensed by then - not to mention I need all new gear. When will the next one be?
