I am 44, and just started riding again after 21 yrs.
Thank you for the post and replies.
My first bike experience stopped with a Kaw ninja 600.
The R6 was a huge leap in technology, but I am still very cautious.
It pains me to see so many gsxxer types wearing tank tops, short shorts,
and tennis shoes that I go out early to avoid being seen with "them".
Again thank you...and track days are in my future.
