I haven't had an issue with the bike being "to much" all I'm doing is using it to putt around in. If I want to drive crazy I'll take my WRX. I know this bike can be wild so for a while I'll just stick to cruising.

You seem to have a level head.

1. Buy your own helmet and gloves. Look for Snell rating as a min.
2. Practice the exersises at the end of this booklet on your bike until everything is second nature.
http://www.msf-usa.org/downloads/Str...cycle_Tips.pdf
3. First 6 months / 3000 miles no more than half throttle.
4. Avoid going on group rides. Too much pressure for falling behind and getting in over your head.

Thanks a lot man. I really appreciate the info. And I do have my own helmet and hand me down gloves. I'll definitely be reading over that booklet. I totally agree with you on the half throttle. I did once ride with 2 of my friends that have been riding for 20+ years and they were very respectful of my noobness. But I sereally what your saying.
