New from PA.

I am new to sport bikes but have been around cruisers and old junkers for years. But never been a HD. guy. I have been looking for something with a bit more prefomance rather than the kick back and relax style.
I WILL not be getting rid of my VTX 1300 just looking for a new style of ride.
A bit about me I am married with four boys ages 5-14. I got my wife her first bike a honda rebel for vallentines day last year and took the safety course with her.
I also am planning on starting YTI for Motorcycle tech in April if all goes well. I have an 1800 sq foot garage that I plan on opening and working on all makes and modles. I have a very mechanical back ground and the hardest part for me I think will be figuring out what bike is what.

How about some plans for what you want to do with it. Ride it around town, mainly? Reasonably long road trips? Ride it at the track? Drag strip? Stunt?
