Congrats on the new ride!
Well its up to me to be a safety nazi, so let me get that out of the way. 90% of bike accident happen withing the first 6mo of owning a motorcycle. So be real carefull for the first 6mo and you reduce your chances of messing up by 90%.
Take the MSF if you can, wear your gear (it has saved the lives of many members of this site, including my own), and get some frame sliders for your bike (ebay, $50). Most of all have fun with it.
Shiney side up!
