New to forum, new R6

I bought myself a 2007 R6 yesterday as a birthday present. She's got 3000 miles, M4 exhaust, Power Commander, and a fender eliminator kit (I'm still learning what that all means). Bought her from a stand-up guy here in town. I've been practicing driving slow in my neighborhood the last 2 days, and got her up to a whopping 12 MPH in 2nd gear today. I'm gonna gradually take her on busier roads as I get used to the handling over the next several weeks. Looking forward to riding with you guys, and learning some valuable tips.
