Ignore anyone that has made any rude/hateful comments. They may think that you are a Troll. In other words, people think you are just messing with them.

Then again many people here are posting some good stuff, filter it in.



One thing that I can say that you should definitely imbed into that brain of yours, is gear up. Im not even sure if you wear the gear or not, Im only stressing the importance of.

Wear your gear. ATGATT- All The Gear, All The Time. It can be the decision of whether or not you make it out of a hospital one day after crashing. I'm not saying this will happen, but does.

It is to many, but I didn't have an overly excessive amount of fun. I'm not a very competitive person to begin with, and don't particularly care for insane street speeds, so I don't mind street riding. I've been told I should give the track another shot because it can take a time or two before you get hooked, I just haven't gone again.

If you love your ride then keep it. Getting a new one because you cant keep up with people who are being totally retarded isn't exactly the best financial choice you'll ever make. Besides, if you had liked a liter bike more, you'd have bought one in the first place, right? Not like there's a ginormous difference in price.

Flame away, but it's the truth. No amount of highway riding or off ramps can make you a "good" rider. All it does is lull you into a false sense of security.

Going to the track was the best thing I've ever done in any sport or hobby I've had in my entire life hands down.
Depends on what you ride for.....define "good".
