Finally got my bike!!

After years of reading posts and saving, today I picked up my first bike. I found a killer deal for a 06 R6 for $5000. I plan to take it slow and get all the gear. I have question though for R6 owners. The owner didnt have the manual for the bike, how do you open up the glove compartement under the seat/passanger seat? Just wondering if there was one. And any other tips for this bike would help. Thanks guys, so exited to be a part of the biker community!

Should be a lock on the left side just behind the rider's seat.

Thanks guys, I'll look into that site. I also have a question about running temp. What temp should I let the bike warm up to before its safe to ride?

At least 104F before riding, don't run the engine hard until 150F.
