Just saying hi. I just got my permit and am planning to take the rider corse (hopefully in august). I have been wanting a bike for years...since 1996 to be exact. I got a superhawk as I have loved them ever since I saw one in 1998 in houston. I realize now that buying a 996cc bike right off may have been hasty until I get used to riding. Oh well, I layed it down already and broke the right foot peg almost off including the right turn signal. No inury yet. $55 for the part and $20 for the flush mount signals. A small price to pay especially since i got off VERY lucky.
Aside from riding, EQ is another serious addiction I'd reccomend staying away from.
