Not yet but looking at Honda Shadow Aero

uh, Hi...

Well, obviously, i'm new around here and i guess i should introduce myself, or at least my interest(s) in being here

My name is Doug, and i've been living in Lake jackson for the past 8 years.

I was lead here from a non motocycle related forum, after asking for leads on a place to ask questions about getting into riding.

I am pretty much a complete newb at all this, don't even have a bike yet. and to be quite honest, while i am sure i will be able to expand my general knowlege here, i'm not yet sure if i'm really in the right place to ask some of the more specific questions i have (more on that below). but i'm definately willing to give it a go and hope you folks will put up with my lack of knowlege.

OK, on to what brought me here and my own personal interest point RE: bikes

Ok first off and this is THE thing that appears to make me a possible minority amoungst the group here, my interests lie in the direction of cruisers and (some may say " forbid") Maxi-scooters, well ok the second part is MAINLY my wife's interest (someone showed her a pic of a piaggio MP3), but right now i'm doing the info gathering for us both.
the above is kinda reason i'm not certain i've really found the right place yet, b/c this forum seems to be mainly comprised sportbike enthusiasts, and the cruiser forum seems a little quiet. But of course i welcome anything that dispells this feeling.

so anyway i'm looking for any and all informations i can get with regard to getting started riding. be it info on when and where to take the MSF course. Since I lack any real expereince with motorcycles i consider this to truly be my first stop along the road to ownership. to what dealerships in teh greater houston area are the better ones to deal with/browse while deciding what i do adn don't want.

well that's me and i welcome any and all info you good folks can give me. thanks for your time.

welcome! you shouldn't have any problem finding info on here. there's pretty much something for everyone as for msf, i took mine with Awesomecycles. they were GREAT!!! but i think there's another school close by you - Longhorn or something like that (they're a site sponser so check out the sponsor's area as most of them give good discounts for MH members). good luck and be safe
