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.
