Let me know what you think!
i think your friends are doing something wrong if they're "bored" with a 250.

i think you should've started on a 250, too. you picked the wrong bike to start on...

welcome aboard anyhow...

Man people always jump right to "gear up gear up gear up! Your dumb for starting on a 600" ...

All true statements but when somebody gets a bike they understand going down fcuks them AND most understand 600's are beastly.

How bout a welcome to the forum! The bike looks great especially with those mods for the price. I know you'll love it man be safe and enjoy.

Our community here is, in my opinion, the best in the motorcycle forums so make sure to read up!

I've got 3 friends with 250's. And one of them has an '09 R6 now after riding the 250 for a few weeks. I do not doubt that it would have helped me crisp up the fundamentals before moving onto a bike that can and will kill me if not respected. I just made the decision that extreme caution and a far from over-confident attitude is going to be what keeps me alive. The guy I bought this bike from used it to learn himself.

As I said before, I have a pretty good chunk of time ahead of me before I ever get out on the streets. I've got gear to buy and classes to take. And I'm gonna be spending some more time on my friend's 250's to really make sure I have the fundamentals down.

I do appreciate the concern, and I understand why. This bike can and will kill me.

I'd like to think I'm taking this whole thing more cautiously than most. I'm definitely not one to hop on and act like she's going to be my bitch.

Thanks for the welcome
