I just finished my MSF course today at Awesome Cycles.

I missed a bell by one question on the written portion, I felt pretty dumb as I knew the right answer and really just over thought it to get it wrong.. On top of that I had an issue with the riding test during the U-turn portion and had to put a foot down/not stay in the line so no perfection there either. I guess I need to practice the U-turn figure 8 some more on my cul-de-sac or something. Anyway excited I have my MSF done, and will be licensed on Friday when I can get to the DMV.

No mas riding dirty for me...

I know you are likley joking. But I don't think I will EVER have enough self control for a turbo busa. I tend to top out everything I have ever owned at least once or twice....

Trying to do that on a turbo busa anywhere but the TX Mile or a really long track would just be nuts .

Looking for a nice well priced RC51 SP2 to replace the Ninja here in 6 months or so, or maybe an 07+ CBR600rr.

Thanks for the welcomes guys.

Enjoy the CBR1000RR

Haha I feel like a little kid getting caught in the cookie jar...

Yea I did not do a good job holding out. I only put a few hundred miles 300-400 on that Ninja 250r, and I could not take it any more. I really wanted a newer 600rr 07+ for the new motor and HSDS, but for the price Stubbs was selling the 100rr 08's they still have new I could not pass it up so I got one Saturday night.

I have only about 75 miles on it so far and it is great, I love the clutch and how light it is for a liter bike! It is too much power for me right now, but I would not know as I am not doing any hard accelerating on it or taking to above 6k rpm yet. I want to break it in nice, vary the rpms, and keep them low until 600 miles and the first oil change.

The riding position is pretty harsh, but I will get used to it and get stronger to take the weight off my hands/wrists more.

good for u buddy! im happy for u!

and u sound like ur being responsible about it, which is nice to see!

keep taking it easy and mid season next season...start some track. TWS (Texas World Speedway) will be easiest in my opinion for a newer rider and a 1k at that!
Congrats

^ Thanks, and yes I have a deep fear/respect for the power this bike has for sure. I have never had something with this high of a power/weight ratio before so I will be taking it easy for some time.

I do plan on hitting some track days next season, so thanks for the recommendations on an easier course for a track newbie.

if u decide u want a 600 too for track purposes... let me know. i have a great 07-600rr for sale


600's ofcourse are better for track- there is more room for error on a 600

glad u didnt stick with the 250- so many ppl think everyone should start on a 250... i think its cool for some but not all. i started on a 600, and had no problems (other then a good wreck...like EVERYONE has...it was lack of skill, not bc i had to high of power)

Bummer I just saw your thread I may have bought it instead of the 1000, but I cant do both. Are the ergos of the 600 any better for a taller person if you know?

Yea the 250 was just too small, the 1000 will take some getting used to though.

Ergonomics like the distance from the pegs to the seat or how high/far away the bars are etc.

oh, idk.... my guess would be, if it is different, its not much to make that huge of a difference. i think ur height isnt to bad to make a danger riding, if anything it should help. plenty of TALL guys here could chime in.... but ur def light to tho, dont go to fast and sit up without holding on tight

Yea yea.... I know. I have been trying to put on some weight, but I don't know where it goes. Being taller than most does make it awkward though depending on the bike.

The whole point would be that it is cheaper to fix/replace since a lot of riders do crash. 99.9% of crashes are a lack of skill.
