Hello....

Another newbie from the great state of Texas.....

Just picked up an 03 919 and saw sooo much info here.

I have been riding for 35 years both street and dirt. Currently own an'89 CR500 and the 919. I have owned many bikes over those years and love motorcycles in general.

First Bike I rode: 1976 (I think) Yamaha GT80

First Street Bike: 1973 Honda CB350

Fastest Bike Owned: 2002 Kawasaki ZX12, or maybe my CR500, its crazy!

Slowest Bike Owned: Penton 125 (lots of fun though)

Favorite Bike: Love em all but when I was 12 and the CBX came out , wow. I will own one someday. Passed a few opportunities but the right one is out there.

I started riding because of my father. His first big street bike was a 1976 CB750F Super Sport (which I rode later quite a bit and loved).

I look forward to some great info and discussion here.

Welcome!

Those old, open class, two-stroke mx'ers were nuts. Wasn't '89 the year little Jeff Ward won the Outdoor AMA series on his KX 500? I remember seeing him flying around Broome-Tioga or Unidilla and wondering how he was holding on to the thing. I used to race 125's back then.

Btw - my first street bike was a Honda mid-70's CJ360!

You think we are warm (yes, we're fuzzy) until we start razzing you for the first mistake you make in your mod frenzy that will inevitably occur because of frequenting this site.
