newbie here

hey guys and gals, my name is Kyle and I'm a first timer to the sight and motorcycling. I happen to work for Tim Ellis at Ellis performance. i've been w/ him for about a month and he got me infected w/ the sport bike bug. He happend to have a nice '2000 Honda F4 just sitting there waiting for me so I splurged a little and bought it. I havn't ridden a bike in 5 years and it was a ZX-9 which scared the out of me. This one seems to suite me just fine. I'm sure being w/ Tim I'll meet most of you soon and look forward to many rides in the future after I get used to it. Thanks, Kyle

Today I bought a real nice bike matching Joe Rocket jacket and a good used KBC helmet also bike matching. Getting there. Just put puting around the street close to home. I recently and for a while rode dirt bikes so I have some experience in riding, not saying dirt and street are the same but i think it helps.

I was in there the day you came and interviewed Kyle, also the week after that and the week after that with my red/black F4

I've ridden that F4 before, sweet bike. Congrats man

Tim's a really good friend to have too, if you ever need help with the bike he's not far from you either!
