First Post, First Bike - to the Yeah!

Greetings all. Been stalking the forum for a few months now and finally had enough reason to join up as I just picked up my first bike last night - a 1999 Suzuki SV650. Took the MSF course last month and have been steadily researching on here what to get for my first bike and after scouring craigslist for a month, finally found a killer deal on the sv650. Safe riding to all!

SV = great bike. Ride safe. Once you get comfortable, hit us up at Fastline for a first time rider discount on a track day. MSRH Sept 15th or Oct 27/28 "Track or Treat" at MSRH just before Halloween are both coming up soon. Even if you don't ride, come out for the lunch and parade laps.

Only my second night with the bikes so prolly less than 15 miles at this point. Sticking to parking lots around my place really just until I get comfortable with the bike. I'd be down for a ride here soon though. Just got her up to 30mph tonight for the first time...hey don't laugh, small parking lot and baby steps here and I felt pretty good about that!!
