That bike is brutal and unforgiving. I've ridden for 16 years on everything imaginable from minis to 200hp bikes and the new zx10r still keeps me on my toes.

Watch your throttle ESPECIALLY on cold tires anything over 1/2 will kick the rear right out from under you. And watch the turns, the bike will want to turn at much higher speeds than you're ready for.

hi.

Consider borrowing someone else bike first. I have a Ninja 250 that you can borrow for a few rides to actually learn how to ride.

Welcome. Things will happen real fast on a bike of that caliber. Watch the throttle at low speeds, you can loose the back end in a hurry.
