What it is? ;) New to forum

Hey MotoH!

New to the site and looking to get involved with the biking scene here in houston, whatever that might be..

I'm actually new to 2 wheels but have been riding and racing 4 wheels since college. Motocross, QUADS and the like.. Getting ready to sign up for the MRH Riding courses and I guess I'll see if anybody has some good used bikes for sale or as i make friends, I'm sure I can get the hookup from somebody who might be selling..

I know not to buy a new from the start but so hard not to!! Been trolling the site for a while now since my friend out at MSR has been giving me advice on bikes.. She's got a nice CBR.. thinkin on that..

nice to meet the clan...

Hey welcome! You have experience in motox and quads so buying new man not be bad for you. A lot of people will tell you not to because you WILL drop it, but some will say that they have never dropped their bikes. My first bike was new and I HAVE dropped it only because I was not used to the weight characteristics and lean angle (also forgot to put the kickstand down once ((once)) but those are things that you might not have to worry about). Good luck with your purchase and look forward to seeing you on the road. I'm in the copperfield area and will soon be in the Katy area about 12 minutes away from where I am now. Look for the Katy/Cypress meet&greets that NewRider posts up every Wednesday to plug in.

There are meets every Wed night around 8pm at Brother's Pizza on I-10 and Hwy 6.

10% of the meet is pizza.
10% of the meet is trying to figure out which direction to ride.
80% of the meet is smoking outside lol..

Don't worry about not having a bike, I always drive and bring my kid with me.

Yeah, I have really good sense of throttle control, braking, and have good motor skills but sport bikes are to really be respected.. I think Murphy's law really will be at work, and i'm sure I will eventually make a mistake and drop it but that is how owning something goes.. same goes with nice cars and door dings and pull to close to a curb..

I've really been thinking a CBR Honda would be a good fit since it sits well an low.. I tried sitting on a Yamaha and don't like it.. Need more experience but I'm not sure I like to be leaning so far forward and you sit so high.. Def. need some suggestions on what the possible best starter bike would be NEW and then what a starter bike i might look for Used.

Welcome. You will find alot of information on this site, and if you don't , just ask. My first bike was a Honda CBR, and it was great, no regrets.

SV650 is a popular starter bike and one you will be happy with for a long time. CBR's are good too but a bit more on the performance side of the scale. I started on a ZX6R for my first street bike but the first street bike I ever rode was a ZX11. I'd start with what is comfortable used or new, you really can't go wrong these days and you can always upgrade! Or modify
