New '07 R6, my first bike ;D

Hey to everyone reading,
My name is Jozey, I'm 19, i moved to Portland from Australia about 6 months ago..
Last week i passed my motorcycle BRT(basic rider training) course with Team Oregon and today i bought my first road bike, a Yamaha YZF-R6.
The bike is super dooper clean with only 3,300 miles on the clock and i payed $5,600 for it. I'll try and upload photos from my phone here but i'm not sure if it'll work,
Like i've already said, twice. This is my first bike and i was really anxious to buy it since i've read over and over and over(and over) again that the r6's(or similar) are far too silly fast and crazy for a first learner's bike.
I rode it slowly around the streets near my house after i got it and i was surprised as to how smooth it felt.
i didn't buy this bike because i thought it looked the best, i bought it because the way i see it is if i buy a gutless bike that is small then i will get far less attention from drivers than this bright red, big, loud and fast bike so that was a +. sure, there are many good unique things about each and every other bike out there on the market, there's no doubt that a less powerful bike is usually easier to control in most situations, but i know what to do with power when it's given to me and for a beginner i know how to treat a bike like this.

i'm loving it, and sure, i might be dead in a week but i'll try to make sure i don't die on this bike

For sure, there's no point in spending lots of money protective gear if you don't wear it.
I will never ride this bike without my gear, even if it's just a short trip to the shops
