Tell us a little about yourself and say hello to the gang. We would like to hear about who, what, and why you ride as well as how you found us.

Hey everyone, I'm Dalton, a 26 year old software engineer at Lockheed Martin and I've been riding for how do you say, 4 months.

Besides the training class, I had never ridden any kind of motorcycle or dirt bike before April. I'm so addicted to it already and am looking forward to going on rides and learning with you guys.

I actually just took my bike up to Crossville, TN recently to visit family and besides a sore knee it was an awesome trip!

2016 Honda CBR300R - tried to buy a used bike buy fell in love with the color of this one and no other bike would do.

Welcome

Road trips are awesome.

I wasn't aware Honda was making a 300, I guess that's the new market segment.

My pleasure. I'm on the 2nd floor of 197, near p2 if you ever want to stop by or need anything. Cube has several motorcycle and car related things hanging so hard to miss. :)
