First time riding a 600

My last 600 was lowered. I never found myself needing more lean angle than was available on the street. You will however find yourself wishing you had better footing plenty of the time

Don't lower the bike, just practice until you are a boss.

There are lowering links for the rear suspension. Jimrad can take care of the rest.

ROFL! That's awesome.

Also, recognize ahead of time when you'll be parking on a slope, and park pointing uphill whenever possible. Back it into the spot if need be, so you can ride out later.

First time riding a 600

First time I topped out my 600 I had to stop and catch my breath. That was probably 6 months into riding. Been riding about 5 years now and still love it. Wait till you hit the track. AWESOME.
