New on R6, riding advice?

Hey Guys, I just need some advice/tips. I had a GS500F and am in the process of getting a 2007 R6. My first bike had a more upright riding position compared to the r6 which is more leaned over. So my question is, what are the best ways to ride on those bikes? any advice or tips would help! thanks
Looking forward to owning a Yamaha!

Re: New on R6, riding advice?

use your back and abs to stay up right and dont put your whole body weight on the handlebars and you should be good. Also, make sure you search the threads before you ask questions like this. You might get made fun of

Re: New on R6, riding advice?

the r6 likes to have you humping the tank, so when you feel like you are, you're doing it right...

Re: New on R6, riding advice?

Take ur time and ride at ur skill level. Don't be scared on turn ins the r6 is the most flickable of the 600s imo so some people get intimidated. So just keep cool and don't panic or do noob things like hitting the brakes hard during turns. you'll be good though if u ride at ur limit so just go out there and have fun :toocool

Use the left foot to put the kick stand down and walk away and call and schedule a motorcycle course
