First things first, read the ATTN sticky at the top of the new riders page. A GSXR is not a bike to learn on. But aside from that, take an MSF course and welcome to SBW!

thanks, but I will be taking the MSF course in 2 weeks, and I changed my mind to a GSXR750. Picking it up in Barstow......

I don't think you understand what you are getting yourself into. Stop and read before you even look a gixxer. I picked up a 1999 cbr600f4 after reading everything because I am stupid and didn't listen. Well needless to say that thing can MOVEEEE. I have mad one mistake that could have gotten my hurt/killed already and it wasn't a me not being careful mistake it was me being a rookie.

Do yourself a favor and take the advice you are given.

Not a gixxer750...not for a couple years!

You are definatly gonna kill yourself on a gixxer750, unless of course you are just ridind down the street posing, then I suppose you *might* not die if you keep it at the speedlimit with your eyes on the road, but if you ever attempt to do any real riding, farewell.

I don't even plan on moving to a supersport until next year, and that will be a 600.

my gf learned the fundamentals of riding on my gixxer. She dropped the bike for the first time yesterday in the parking lot practicing emergency stops. That being said, there is no way the gsxr is a good first bike. It is heavy, twitchy, and easy to flip over with the flick of a wrist. Let's be honest, you're not going to take any of our advice, so be careful on your new gixxer :)

Yeah, good luck with that. Wear gear, 'cause there's about a 97% chance you're going down hard Rookie.
