Welcome to MH

Best prevention of falls is to attend some trackdays.

Trackdays save lives

Crash cage. They have a few different styles, race,stunt ect...
Check out 905 cages.
http://www.haibikeshop.com/index.php...7s7karuj1qr0e3

or get a set of frame sliders
Best bet is to practice on a used bike or dirt bike then hop on the R6.

Crash cages and frame sliders will only AID in preventing scratches.

Cages are meant to protect the engine, not plastics. Frame sliders...well, the frame.

Just get frame sliders. If you need a crash cage just to ride a bike normally you shouldn't be on a bike. Go to Awesome Cycle and take their safety course.

And most of the time, installing either means cutting into your plastics.

Welcome to the forum.
Quote:
To go right push on the right bar, to go left push the on left bar. This called counter steering and you learned how to do it when you learned how to ride a bicycle. Use your front brake mainly and use the rear brake lightly. Look where want to go, not where you are going. Always look far ahead and when in traffic behind a car, ride to one side of then lane or the other so you look around the car and see whats going on up ahead. Take your advice from riders who have been riding a long time, the older/wiser the better.

You will crash eventually so get geared up. And remember this, there two kinds of motorcycle riders. Those who have crashed and those that are going to.

There are old riders and there are bold riders but there are no old and bold riders.
Buying a brand new bike to learn is not the way to go IMO, but on the other hand, what's money for right?

I believe the frame slider caused this crack in my frame when I went down at the track. Apparently the bike was going backwards when it landed on the left side by the bent bolt where the slider used to be. I believe that stress is what cracked the frame. I'd rather have had some broken plastics. No more frame sliders for me.

Welcome to the forum! Get some frame sliders and sign up for a ride safe class... their bikes are meant to be dropped on accident, but you more-than-likely won't drop one under close watch and instructions.

When Im not dropping my bike by the roadside it stays protected in the garage. It's so much more enjoyable when you are not worried about every knick or chip in the plastics.

Hahahaha, but really though. You did not give a single remote when I saw you drop yours.
