Re: So you wanna get a sportbike?

instead of telling people what they cant ride, we should make them aware of how to properly use their bike and how to ride safely

Of course if you have a bike I'm sure everyone will help and give pointers.

This is meant for people thinking about getting their first bike.

RIP Matt (Ghost R6). You will be greatly missed. Be smooth and the rubber turning till we meet again.
