What it Dew, MotoHouston

Well, I am new here of course, I am currently living in Michigan, right now. I hate it here. I will be moving home in a couple of months. I can't wait! The only thing good that came out of me being here is I met my good friend Mike here, which he is now living in Houston and he is the one that told me about this site.

Well here is my bike info, I ride a bike that you don't see on the road everyday and if you do see it, you can't really help it but stare or ask is that thing street legal.

My bike is a 2006 X-18, its manfactured by Buyang Group. scratching your head yet. It what most people call a super pocket bike, which I really hate the name. I belong to another forum community called "midbikenation" and that what they really are, mid-size displacement motorcycles. This was my way of getting around when gas was getting expensive and cooler than a scooter

You can acually get the legalized, for only street use, "no highway" or "E-way".

I will eventually buy a bigger bike, but nothing would replace my mid.

Here is a list of mods:
114cc engine honda clone (china made)
Ported and polished big valve head
Race cam
High compression piston
Heavy duty oil pump
Kevlar clutch plates
Modded fork internals
Dual Billet brembo brakes
Upgraded billet master cylinder with matching clutch perch
Rear Brembo caliper
Yoshimura rearsets
Yoshimura exhaust
Pirelli SL26 tires
8 over extended swinger
Nology Race coil
Race CDI
Pig spotter 2 mirrors
L.E.D lights all the way around

Here are some pictures of the bike when I finished it the first-time, now she is getting painted with a Tecate beer race theme, I custom made.
This video is what is look like with stock colors, yall might regonize it or seen one before.

This video is a quick spray job I gave it.

It is currently getting painted again.

I was born and raised in the northside of Houston, Well Northeast. I decided to use that to rep where I'm from, it was going to be TXAN but my car had that one.

Thanks for the welcome

you'll have to come down and introduce yourself at one of the many meet and greets =). thanks, Yeah its perfect for city street riding, I think I get pulled over more than a fullsize bike. Cops hate all the time. No problem I'll be out there when I get there.

what part of town are you going to be on? its a big city. north side is where its at
I was planning on posting up in the Nawfside, I use to live off 59N & Tidwell

look into getting a full fledged mini trackbike too... such as nsr50 or a minimotard like a klx110 or xr100. you may like running around on those.

I have some buddies that race their mids, against NSR's, YSR's, and tards. I plan on doing the same.
