Hello Everyone,
I joined this forum recently and would like to introduce myself:
31 y.o, white, male, from NJ.
I had 2 bikes before one was '79 honda 450 and '80 Yamaha 650
Both of them were in kinda bad shape but i was able to ride on them for 2 seasons.
But I got tired of bikes that I ride one day and than i gotta fix it for a next day,so I went to the dealer and got me new 05 gixxer 750,but the truth is I NEVER rode a sport bike and reading from this forum it seems like a total different expirience,my questiong is lets say if I start riding the gixxer smoothly without urge to reach a "speed of light" and not doing stunz,should I do ok with that size of bike?
I am 6"2 and 225 lbs and never droped any of my other bikes.
I would appreciate any input here.

Cool ok

I think you'll be just fine. Take your time to learn this bike.

The straight-aways are nothing its the turns ya gotta worry about.

You got the right bike for the twisties, and track.

As long as you have respect for the bike it will have respect for you. Wish it worked that way with cages.

I could stop if I wanted to.
