Quicksaveme,
Keep the bike man, just take your time and NEVER do more than you are ABSOLUTELY comfortable doing. If that means catching the guys you are ridin with down the road, then don't hesitate to do it. Hopefully the guys you are with are not big enough to know you are new to ridin but still haulin ...if you need some folks to ride with...holler at myself, 1SMAR, A303, 1FastGSXR or a few others out here and I'm sure you'll have a beter, safer time...choose wisely, who it is you ride with...
yea, cajun is telling the truth i ride with him all the time. but for real peeps need to slow down. is just not worth it. one thing you and everyone should remember...dont fing ride over your limit. just bc the guy in front of you is going 120 in a turn doesn't mean you have to. no shame in slowing down and riding in your limit. cajun will tell you, if im not feeling the speed that night i will just chill and catch up with him later on down the road and im still cooler than him! but jorge, u got my number and the ppl that cajun listed are all cool peeps, ive ridden with them all. get with us and all will be good! BUT KEEP THE 1DIZZLE REAL.

yea bro you need to learn to tame that snapping wrist of yours. 180 on public steets is a no no.( so that was you that passed me!!! LOL)

i'll trade ya my R6 for that R1 plus a little something to offset. and i'll even leave on all the extras. forreals though. i'm ready for a 1000cc + bike.

i thought long and hard before i got my bike weather to go with the R1 or the 600. i chosse the R6 because of the turns. pm me if your inerested.

Dude keep the bike and buy a used 250. Your gonna end up losing 3-4k if you sell the r1 and then spend 2k on a 250 then turn aournd and buy a bigger bike and lose money all over again. If you know someone trustworthy lease it to them while you learn to ride the 250. btw most people dont lose money on a used 250, cuz they usually get back what they paid for it.

Maybe you should just meet up with some riders that do just the speed limit and allow them to teach you to control your urges
+1

The left mirror also has a small scratch. It has GreggsCustom Flushmount turn signals and no signals in the back due to the fender elim.

I still owe 13k on the bike so what would you be willing to pay?

p.s. the bike is a 2007 Charcoal R1

lol and don't say 5 thousand dollars
how about some pics? Sounds like you have a of a nice ride.

1. Do some 'effing track days!! (free if you do some corner-work)
2. Get your suspension tuned (its about $25)

I can't begin to tell you how much just one day on the track helped my riding. First, it really teaches you how to corner. Second, and maybe most importantly, track days let you totally rip on your bike, so when you get back on the street, its almost boring. You can't haul like you can on the track, you can't corner like you can on the track, its alot more dangerous than the track, etc... you will be more calm on the street and really let 'er have it on the track!
