Re: New member in La first sport bike

Well this is what i have learned. Since purchasing this beast. I love it... yet the pegs are bs if u are really trying to do more then cruise around town. The mirrors are useless for anything more then looking at my elbows. A must change. turning ur head on the freeway at high speeds is no good. Also glendale ca has more retard drivers then anywhere. Fast in a straight line is fun but gets old. I have been focusing on trying to get confident and faster through corners as well as working on rev matching down shifts, the throtle is touchy. Ooh and at being 160 she is heavy in the rain dropped it last week in the rain when some one decided to go the wrong way around a roundabout on a side street. Foot slipped out and that was it. Minor damage bent clip on busted tank side cover bent frame slider. Busted ego was the worst.

Welcome and congrats. Good looking bike, but my god that exhaust is hideous. The stock one looks better than that.
