New and cruisin

Hi all,

First post on motohouston, feel like I should introduce myself.

My name is Matt, I'm attending Sam Houston State University for Mass Communications (I know, I'll be jobless for the rest of my life...)

I got into motorcycling about 6 months ago after my uncle's wife passed away. I wanted to find a hobby that he enjoyed doing so that I could find a reason to spend more time with him. He's been riding since he was a kid and he is now 50+ so he's got more than enough experience under his belt.

I mentioned to him that I was interested in riding and soon after he lent me his ninja 250r. Shortly after, I totalled it (Stupid story, I'll post some other time). He was more than cool with me destroying his bike, as insurance paid for it all. He's on a Buell 1125r now and a Ducati st4. Meanwhile, I'm on a 1986 Honda cb450, I call it the Blue Bomber.

I have other hobbies also. I play guitar, and I am told that I'm very good, however, I'm my own worst critic. So I'll let you guys be the judge if I get around to shamelessly self-promoting later on. Regardless, I play blues and Stevie Ray Vaughan is my inspiration.

I also am an entreprenuer: I own a sno-cone stand in Huntsville, called Eat 'Em Kones. Check us out sometime if y'all get to this neck of the woods.

I also am interested in making commercials/jingles if anyone has their own business. I promise to give a biker discount!

In addition to all of that, I build my own tube amps for guitar and bass. Its more of a hobby, but I love to nerd out on that stuff.

--------------------

So there's a little bit about me, I heard about this site from a customer at the snocone stand today and figured I outta check it out. I look forward to corresponding with all of you guys soon.

Keep the rubber side down boys!
-Matt
