Thanks again for everyone's input.
bro, a 600cc will still eat your alive if you dont watch out lol

As others mentioned, watch your six and never stop directly behind a car; always on the side. Also make sure you leave a bit of room between the car in front of you in case some douche behind you "forgets" to slow down

Stay out of first...600 can be twitchy and 2nd gear will be just fine.

Don't worry about speed, just worry about the feel of the bike. If you feel uncomfortable or you start drifting wide, then slow down or look more through the turn.

Maybe practice the turn when there is less trafic.

Good luck and stay safe...

Haha, it's okay. I practiced my throttle control. Very cautious with it, but I give enough to get away from a car if needed.

No thanks on trade
