Hi everyone. Iam new to the forum, and also new to riding. I have roughly a year and abit, going for my full license in the spring. I currently own a 2004 r6. Its Also my first bike and had never ridin or sat on a bike prior to purchasing it. I did however go through all the required testing and rider training before i hit the street. I havent dumped my bike yet but i know it comes with the territory. So yea i just wanted to drop a post. Thanks everyone

be careful and attend as much training as you can; the r6 is NOT a starter bike...

i totally agree its not a starter bike. But i could not pass up the offer. I met alot experienced riders throuhout the year, and gone down to the local track to absorb as much knowledge as i can. Iam 26 with a wife and one child. And for the record when i go riding i wear as much gear as possible. I have a Bell rs-1 helmet, an icon contra with armor jacket, for boots i use astars smx2, and icon super duty or overlord gloves. I have seen kids go down only wearing that stryker vest and let me tell you it aint pretty. I know people say this all the time that they are ressponisble, but i truely dont push my self, i have to stick around for my family. I did however get life insurance and the highest level of coverage here in my town. Insuring a bike here where i live is not cheap at all, i paid 3200 for the 6 month riding season.

Uhh...


Anyway, good luck to you sir. If I were you I'd sell off that Icon gear and buy something with some quality. Stay away from Alpinestars.
