new to forum

used to riding my friends dirt bikes out in the desert, but finally took the plunge and got a street bike. 2006 R6S, black.

took the 3 day saftey class, got my license yesterday, practicing riding around parking lots and having a blast, learning a lot. cant wait to hit the streets.

any tips are helpful. =]
