Hello everyone, I finally got my Yamaha after so, so, so many years of desiring one. I just turned 39 and to be honest I was a bit nervous when I rode my 2008 R6x after many years without ridding a bike. My past riding experience (15+ yrs ago) was on a 400cc dirt bike, so you get the idea. It is a totally different world from from that experience to ridding an R6. The R6x might not be the first option for a beginner but when I saw the 2008, I just had to take it home. I have only ridden the bike around my community and have not exceeded 60 mph. It is very sensitive, responsive and fast, I will definitely ride it with respect. I am going over ridding technincs literature and will enroll in the MSF course. Any suggestions are welcome and appreciated.
