I've been trolling the forum for about a month now. Just got my 02 R6 on Monday. Its my First Bike. Been out with a buddy(in an empty parking lot) and gotten the hang of the clutch and throttle and am spending time in my neighborhood practicing. I'm having a blast. Ill be taking the MSF course in a week and a half and I've picked up helmet, jacket, gloves, and boots to ride in.
