Welcome to the community.

Be sure to check the events section for rides, meets and such. I'm sure we could all feed you loads of advice, but ultimately it comes down to your decisions. The best thing to do is to dictate when you ride and when you don't. Don't ride when angry or upset this tends to motivate us young guys more often then not and cause big problems.

I'm glad to hear that you already took the MSF, good for you!

Therein lies the problem. Don't get wreckless with the litre bike just cuz you start to get comfortable with it. Treat it with respect or it will bite back.

Congrats on becoming a rider and BE SAFE.

Welcome to the board man. I would have to agree with everyone on gettin a liter bike as a first, not the best idea. But every rider is different keep the respect for your machine, be mindful of your surroundings, and don't get too head strong and you'll be fine... Hope to see you around

I've heard that 6 months experience is when new riders often get in trouble. They're not scared anymore, but haven't really developed the skills. Get to a track day as soon as you can.

Well, you can't say you didn't get a Welcome. Not the warmest I've seen, but a WELCOME none the less.

Squoddybody's right - join "The Humble Crew" and ride smart.

Do you have gear? Jacket, Boots AND gloves? I saw the question addressed but not answered? I'd hate to think you are riding a liter bike with nothing but a helmet.
