Hows it going. I have been lurking around the site since I got my bike (you know what it is) and decided to join. Seems like a lot of nice people on here. Kind of spread out, maybe someone from the houston/galveston TX area would want to meet up and go for a ride. I have been riding since 2002 and have owned several different bikes. All were Yamahas except the new Ninja. Decided to give it a try and it is awesome. I have had an R1 and 2 R6s, plus 2 FZ6s and YZF600r. Just to give you a hint at some of the bikes I have owned. Decided to go with this cause I wanted something really good for tearin up the back roads and not making my wife want to kill me for doin 170mph. Anyway, enough with the rant. Glad to be here and look forward to reading some good threads. Take care and be safe!
