Hopefully you'll get into a class. I'm sure if you read up, there's plenty of good info for a new person riding.

Stuff, like, don't stop in the center of the lane at a light in all the oil. Stop in the tire tracks.

Body position is crucial to limiting the lean angle of the bike in turns.

Front braking for the vast majority of times, etc.

There's tons of posts you'll find helpful and plenty of people to help you with that carbureted bike.

I think i'll stick around, you guys seem pretty cool . My path has 210k miles and is still running pretty good, especially for a 93.
