Yeah usually the ones that fall to the sport abuse it for a little flash, it's hard to look cool when your crawling on the ground and your bike's smashed.

As difficult as it may seem to decline the opportunity to purchase an attractive 1000cc machine, the truth is...I highly suggest you do pass on the occasion...And my thoughts are, if you want to become an experienced rider you should start small, and work your way up to pure race bred machines such as Yamaha's pristine R1s

Arrow One more thing...

If I can also stress one point: be a conscientious rider.

Motorcycling freedoms are under constant attack. They have been for decades. In the past ten years however, I have noticed a shift. We are losing the battle in the court of public opinion.

People are pissed. They are pissed at reckless stunt devils who speed down residential streets or pull a quarter-mile wheelie on a busy highway. They are pissed when they are enjoying a nice meal on a sunny day on the veranda of a cafe and have to listen to some jackass with straight pipes or some ignoramus with nitrous and a stretched swing-arm who wants everyone within half-a-mile to know that his rev limiter works reliably. And guess what? They're right to be pissed.

It used to be that these behaviors were mainly from outcasts. We could point to them and say, "they're just a few bad apples". But that's not as true anymore. The media hasn't helped either. They have encouraged and exploited this type of behavior with shows like Super Bikes.

This hasn't helped any of us. Don't be like them. Don't be a squid. Help change the tide. Be respectful. Be careful. Be educated.

Be conscientious.

Excellent post

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.
