Welcome to the club. Take time to get to know your bike and horn your skills. This way when you move to a bigger bike it will be a lot easier!!!!

Yea welcome

Be careful, if you piss it off, your R6 will bite you

I agree... take the MSF course if you haven't already. Other than that, one of the biggest mistakes you can make is showing off and goofing off. It will kill you, it almost did me. Respect it, b/c it will bite you like Jasamb said... and that's no understatement. I just got my '03 about a month ago, put 1200 miles on it so far (within the month), and have had many experiences in which that MSF course has saved my life - multiple times I might add. I'm 18, and it's my first bike also, you should be alright, but just be careful and respectful. And don't think about wheelies to like next year... or anything of that manner.

Wow 17 huh? You must be a senior in high school right? do you ride to school? get jocked up the ass?

I just met another 17 year old last week who told me how lucky he was to be 17 with an R6.

Kids just keep getting luckier and luckier.

I should talk though i'm only 20 started when i was 18 but hey i payed for it myself.

Who cares how old you are? Its all about having fun. I can't lie though, I wish I had one when I was 17 or even 21 for that matter.
