Hi

Hi, I'm a noob rider and I'm learning on a 600cc bike. I already read through all the hype about not learning on a 600 but too late. I ride a 06 ZX-6R, titanium+red tribal. Haven't been riding very long and I haven't had any falls or anything yet but I'm taking it slow.

Welcome from a fellow 636 rider. So what's up with the login? Purdue North Central, Calumet, or West Lafayette?

EDIT: DUH! Check out the Motorcycle Safety Foundation and try to get into one of their courses. I guarantee you won't be sorry. Nice lid!

I would stay off that bike or ride it very little until after you take the MSF class. I would hate to mess up that thing. Good luck, and welcome to SBW!

can't see it in the pics but hopefully you're wearing ankle high boots when you ride. Also, you may want to invest in some frame sliders, so if a drop ever occurs you can keep the damage to a minimum.
