Its a rare beautiful November day here in STL, and before I go out for a ride soon, I thought I'd introduce my self as a new joiner to all the 2 wheeled enthusiasts!

Quick story; I've always loved motorcycles but never had the outlet for them growing up. Recently, while thinking of getting a new car, I thought to myself "self, why not get a bike instead?". So I did! I came home from work travels a week later, bought the 300r on a wed afternoon along with my gear, took the MSF safety course here over that weekend, got my license and the bike delivered Monday... Then I had to go back out of town the very next day and that was very painful hah!
Anyway, I love it every minute of it. I cant wait to take all the opportunities to safely ride that I can. So if you're in STL, hit me up... ill finish a ride with you...

Welcome and congrats on your new purchase.......I have been mostly a Honda dirt bike and quad Honda owner most of my life.......now owning a 300r I've become a huge fan of riding on the street as well. You just can't be Honda . Period.

Welcome to the forum!

So does this mean that you also bought a new car recently?

The bike looks awesome. I'm sure you will have plenty of fun with it.

Cool that you got the bike. Welcome to the forum!

Do you actually have a car or are you just driving the motorcycle now? WOn't you get cold in the winter?

Thanks everyone! Glad to be here & promise to be active and provide quality posts.
I do currently have a car (Honda Accord) but I was gonna get liability on that and get a new car so that I can use the Honda for work commutes and whatnot. But, as I stated, I got the bike instead! Solid decision!

I guess Missouri is warm enough that you have a longer riding season than other places. Especially me since I live in Canada :p Depends on if you are in the north or south of the state i guess.

Will you commute with your bike or your car? Is the bike just for the weekends or something?

sometimes it stays freakishly warm in Nov.but I don't plan on riding below 45 degrees maybe. I don't have any winter gloves or anything yet. So far ive used the bike for getting to friends houses or those days where its nice and you just crave a ride. At this point, I need all the practice I can get. I been driving random paths just to gain experience.

Good call on not riding in the cold. I avoid it as much as I can since the tires don't hold up as best as they can in those temperatures, rather ride in conditions that are optimal.
