'07 GSXR-750 (sold)
'05 zx6r Monster (sold)
'03 600rr track (sold)
'04 600rr Eurobet (sold)
'05 gsxr 600 (sold)






Switched bikes....kinda

So I sold my 03 600rr, and will be picking up a 03 600rr, chris' to be exact.

After my last trackday, my instructor Bill Keros suggested that I move up to intermediate.

Here's the thing, obviously I'm used to my bike's throttle response, handling,
etc.


Chris' bike has upgraded suspension, and +2/-1 sprockets, and stickier tires.

What are the biggest things i need to be mindful of the first few sessions of the day???

Send a message via AIM to Scorpio
Bring it by Motorcycles Unlimited and get it set up for your weight.
Take a few slow sessions to get a feel for the bike.
It will accellerate a bit more and you will probably do a bit more shifting.
Other than that, you should'nt notice a lot until you really start pushing it.
