Shout Out!!

I Just want to give a shout out to everyone as I'm new to these forums.

I just bought my first sport Bike as of 2wks ago & I didn't really understand before I owned one the kind of power they put out(I made the mistake of letting the salesman talk me into some power mods right off the show room floor before I got used to the bike). I have a lot of learning to do & hope to get some pointers from all of you.

Thanks for the shout back fellas!

I don't know what I was thinking when I bought a modded bike like that right off the show room floor. Maybe it's one of those re-capture your youth things beings I turn 30 this year (Hell, I don't know-LOLOL).


I'm sure I will have a ton of stupid/obvious questions for you guys in the very near future. I'll make sure I try & post them under the proper forum topics. I just signed on here today and theres probably 6 months of reading to be had on here.



Thanks!

You're right in that there is a lot of good information on here. I would say though that you shouldn't be afraid to ask anything at all, no matter how stupid you think it is. Especially with starting on a bike that big, you want to be extra careful.

Of course, some jerks like me might give ya a good natured ribbing now and then, but we try to throw in useful information with it.

Ride (extra) safe!

It is all about throttle control. Always wear protective gear, especially for a busa for your first bike.
