New Rider...checking in (R1)

I am officially the owner of a 2008 Yamaha R1.
Today I spent the morning getting it insured, new plate, tags, titled in my name, etc... It's all legit now - she's mine.

1st impression...HOLY ...this thing hates cruising under 50 mph. She really wants to go, go, go all the time. I'm not used to the riding position...been riding Harleys mostly the last several years. I guess it goes without saying the power difference is a bit noticable as well.

Now I have to go gather up some gear so I can really ride safely. I'm sure I'll be on here daily asking stupid questions and eventually arguing with ppl just for the sake of seeing myself type. Hey - it's what I do...don't say I didn't warn you.

No - not the 1st bike I've owned.
I've been riding since I was 6 yrs old.

Over the last 10 years I've owned 7-8 street bikes. Closest thing to a "sport bike" though would be a Katana...and Lord knows that BARELY qualifies. 90% of my bikes owned are various Harleys.
