Dude I just saw you on MotoHouston and I saw your profile pic and I was like **** yeah r3's in houston! I came here and saw you here now! I also have a raven r3 I'm in Sugar Land but don't really have too much time to ride cause school. I'll probably be able to go out more often around January or Feb so we might be able to meet up then. If you're looking for other people to ride with I heard there's a group that meets up at La Madeleine in Sugar Land and then go out to Crabb River on Sundays, haven't seen them yet though.

Welcome! I also had a zx6r, among other bikes, before this one. How are you liking it compared to the 636?

Could you explain why you went with the r3 in the first place and whether you will be going back soon to the 600 super sport bikes soon?


General Question for all: Also, I realize bikes get blown around on the highway, each to a different extent, but at what level above a 300cc class does it get noticeably tolerable on the highway?

There's multiple track options in the general area, and I wouldn't recommend COTA as a first time rider. MSR is very local and if it's your first time it's half off at $75 to go out with Ridesmart.

I agree with Homyality MSR is local and it's a nice track. I've seen a lot of r3's and rc390s over there
