Dont listen to them ... my first bike was and still is a GSXR 600. Yeah, its a lot of bike, but it's not too much bike for a beginner, as long as you are smart and careful about it! and I stress that, because the stupid people that start off with a 600 and fudge it and themselves up are the ones that dont respect the power of the bike!

what part of town do you live/ride at?

If a beginer is smart and careful they can start on any bike, but the power is there, and a 600 can get away from as fast as a 1000,,,,and+ can. Take the MSF it can and WILL save many many times in your riding carreer. Its fun, youll learn alot, and you get an insurance break. I dont see a reason not to take it. Ignore anyone who says otherwise.

I also have Liquid Snow

You won't believe your eyes. Just add water to the mysterious white powder and in seconds the transformation begins. The liquid magically changes into a fluffy white powder that looks just like snow. It's actually a safe, non-toxic polymer that absorbs water and fluffs up to look like snow.
Materials

Insta-Snow Powder
- Measuring cup
- 2 plastic mixing cups
- Water

It's probably Kaleco brand...I'll have to check and make sure. I got the Stage 3 Laguna Seca-approved upgrade package so you know it's the best!

just for the record, I'm not saying that he shouldnt take the MSF ... I am all for it! I think everyone should take it, as a beginner or refresher.

And to answer your questions:
i have ~4,700 miles on my bike, and I've had it for about 6 months.

and I can't say what are the odds he's gonna crash or not ... it doesnt matter if your a beginner or been riding for 20 years, you can't say what the odds of anyone crashing or not, because on the road you are never in 100% control!

I think that you should rotate the air in your tires

oh ya, you guys gotta get some cross drilled brake lines too! the combination of the two is unbeatable!

And for long distance touring, make sure you change to 7speed oil from 6 speed. The extra gear is great for economy

so what, would you rather me not say anything. you ever heard that everyone has something to give to this world?
whats to say that one person might not have experienced something in their first month that someone else riding for 10 yrs has not experienced.
i've met some veteran riders that are on their 5th maybe 6th bike because they still ride like an idiot ... but what, just because he has been riding for a while, i should hear what he has to say. NO! You need to listen to what everyone has to say and then you pick and choose what you want from all of that based on the person that gave the advise.
and just for the record, yeah, i've heard of "the blind leading the blind", but if you read and understand what i said, you would know that that is not what I am doing. I gave a comment based on a personal experience. Blind leading the Blind would be me telling someone how to take turns at the track, yet I have never been on the track.
