Bought a bike

So I just bought my first bike, and am registering for a msf this week at my school.
I bought a 2000 cbr f4 for 2000, clear title runs real smoothe, and in pretty good a shape.

Its a lot of bike though. Very fast, kinda scary.

If anyone knows any problems these bikes have let me know.

That's cool, I was in the same position when I got my first bike. I bought it and had a few days to ride/practice before MSF started. This was before my MH days, I knew nothing of 250's as starter bikes and taking the MSF. Luckily a friend suggested the MSF so I took it and all turned out well. You will be glad you took the course.

Anyways, once you complete the course, it should put a ton of confidence in you, it did for me at least. Enjoy!

Welcome, officially.

When your comfortable I'd recommend getting a look over and suspension set up on the bike while its new to you. Ask about general maintenance to prolong your investment

We have sponsors available all over town to help
