So now I am building up my mileage by riding around the Heights/Memorial Drive area and working on my street riding skills. Love the FZ6. I read all about how it is not a good noob bike but being a bit older and I like to think more mature, I have felt pretty comfortable so far.
Don't read that as cocky. I have a very healthy respect for the power under my right hand. I always remember what my "Black Hat" instructor told me at the US Army Parachute School "The day you are not afraid is the day you stop jumping". I go ATGATT every time I get on the bike.

I hope to join a group ride some time down the road when I have built up a good mileage base.

Maybe I will be good enough to someday join Astars! I read that the "Forest Gnomes" are going Icon but my name is Joe so maybe I will start up a Joe Rocket club.

Anyway, be gentle on this noob if you see me posting on threads.

Howdy! Welcome to MH. I live in the Medical Center. There doesn't seem to be too many MH riders in our area. I only know of a couple. If you ever want to go ride, let me know.

Motorcycling in itself is not inherently dangerous. But to an even greater degree than the sea, it is terribly unforgiving of any carelessness, incapacity or neglect.
