started on my 650 recently, and it took me a week or so to even go full throttle. The bike was so fast, I thought about 1/4 turn out the throttle was all the way. I know how fast the bike can go, but usually that's much faster than I want to go. But whatever I'm still learning.

you will get use to the straight line acceleration quickly... atleast for me... but it took awhile to get use to the speeds i could handle leaned over.. but after TWS (Texas World Speedway) that issue was all cleared up front straight turn 1 will fix that problem QUICKLY!

Just like using the brakes or steering to avoid trouble quickly so too can acceleration become a defensive tool...go to a trackday by MAKING time for it.

don't have one of thsoe flux capacitors, I do have a FUKKX capcitor its called an ambulance and if you don't take the advice your reading here your gonna be in one, if its mine then better hope I'm in a good mood. but really do what the peeps here are telling you , go to track days, take classes like MSF and learn, cause as was said you will most likely never out ride the bike

Almost everyone here will tell you yes, just by the nature of this forum. In reality, it all comes down to your riding personality in terms of your mechanical reflexes and the many different aspects of motorcycling that suits what you're looking for. And there's many aspects, to which at your age and/or seat time, you have yet to experience.
