Red face New to positively everything - Chris from Katy!

Howdy!

I'm Chris! I'm a twenty year old who's currently a full time student at Texas A&M (Computer Engineering). I'm from Katy, TX, (Cinco actually! Hope I don't offend any "Old Katy" people !) and I've lived in Texas all of my life. I'm extremely intrigued by motorcycles, and I always have been. I love to go fishing (saltwater only)! I also love traveling, specifically to Japan (Osaka).

Up until just last month, I had never ridden a motorcycle. I once doubled up on my friend's Honda NSR250R, but never actually operated one. So, I decided to take the MSF course at Awesome Cycles. My instructor was David, and I had a lot of fun! I passed, and just got my license at the DPS last week. I really hope to start riding sometime soon, but my parents are EXTREMELY against all and any forms of motorcycling.

I really want a Kawasaki Ninja 250R, but I want to buy up ALL (helmet, jacket, pants, gloves, boots, and amour) of my gear before I even think about purchasing a bike.

I've been lurking here for a while. I went to the Houston Auto Show today and saw a track bike that had a MotoHouston.com forum sticker on it. So, I've decided to come out of the darkness and into the light!

Hope to meet and ride with some of you soon!

Chris
