When below your name, it reads "Senior Member." lol. But seriously, you'll know, especially after some track days (which will get you there quicker), etc. And if you ever fall off, being able to analyze and learn from it is another sign.

kanwisch It wasn't until I borrowed an R6 and had no real issues/fright/concern dealing with its capabilities that I recognized I was at a significantly different level than I started.

Eye of the beholder, IMO. I define my level by my comfort and skills relative to what I use the bike for.

ZX6R1033 This is like a story I heard when I was taking Karate... a guy came in asking about lessons.. about 5 minutes into it, he asked the sensai "how long until I am a black belt?" with which the sensai responded by pulling a black belt out of the cabinet, handing it to the guy and saying " you are now a black belt. Come back if you want the training."


I guess the point is... do you really care when you are a new rider and when you are not... or do you only care that you are a rider? When you get to the point that you no longer care if you are new or not, and go riding simply for the ride... you will no longer be a new rider. Forget about the silly terms.
