Howdy, y'all! Nah just playin'. I don't say "howdy." I'm Mike. 26 years old in Katy, Texas. Don't yet have a bike but I'm looking to get one SOON, VERY VERY SOON. Hoping to find a nice '01-'02 F4i.
Took the MSF basic course couple of weeks ago and it was friggin' fun!

Cheers!

There's some great info around here. The archives and stickies in the new members and new riders sections have a ton of good advice.

Good luck finding a bike.

Congrats on taking the MSF course...

Good luck in finding a bike!! Do you already have your protective gear?

Protective gear!? Sunglasses and an mp3 player isn't enough?

i'm currently looking into a helmet, jacket, and gloves. I'll probably get a pair of riding boots too just b/c of the one time i was on a friends bike and my laces got tangled up in the shifter...

I went to the local Honda dealership today and tried on some gear. I like the Arai Signet helmet; just might need to get some thinner cheek pads for it.

Don't forget pants or atleast overpants.

Howdy, I ain't kidding. I had an f4i as my second bike. You will love that bike. It is a little to much for a beginner, but to each his own. Just be careful and that thing will treat you really good. That is one of the best all around bikes ever, IMO. Wish I didn't wreck mine. Peace.
