Gonna start my own newb thread

Starting my own newb thread. I am a total newb. New to riding, new to the forum. Just joined like an hour ago. Just wanted to say what's up to all and say that i like the vibe of this site so far. Like the ripping on each other too. That makes me feel like i am right at home with my dysfunctional family LOL. I got my first bike a month ago. It is an 06 Ninja 500r. I like it. Pegged 120 on it the other night and am trying to work up the nuts to go faster. It was still on its way up at 120 so i think a guy my size can probably get pretty close to the 140 tag on the speedometer. Well looking forward to being on the site.

Stoppies are fun when you do them on purpose. Otherwise you might crap yourself.

It is definitely on my list of things to do. The MSF class will save me money on my insurance. I am also thinking of upgrading my bike in say 6 months or so. What do u think? Should i do a kawi 636 or a 10r? Remember I have only been riding a month, at tops i will be riding 8 months before i get my next bike. If i have been riding a 500 is the jump to a 1000 a little much?

Heck, Get a Busa or a ZX14. Surely you can master ridding in a few months well enough to handle the big boys.

All jokes aside, Take baby steps. You'll live longer.

LOL. I think the baby steps is a good idea. The 636 is very appealing. The reaason i stick with kawi is because i found a dealership here in DFW, Tx that has swwwwweeeetttt deals on kawi's. My 500 was 5,049msrp on website. This dealership, which is 100% legit and has been in business 40 years, had my bike for 5,049 out the door. That is tax, title, license, inspection, registration, and freight and assembly out the door. It is pretty damn close to wholesale. If you are in DFW and looking for a great deal on some bikes, ATV's, watercraft, and gear look up Sammy White's Kawasaki City of Irving or of Dallas. No this isnt a lame plug for a dealer i work for LOL. I am a nerd and work for Best Buy. I was just happy with the service and the deal and am always up for referring people to a good experience.

and be careful. Work on your skills man. Its much more fun to glide through a corner with a good lean and a perfect angle than it is to do 150mph.

And idiot can get on a bike and twist the throttle to a buck fitty. Work on the skills.

Keep posting stories like this and your turn will come quick enough...

Get smart and get the basics down before you try to peg it out...

Don't let them brainwash you too much, get out while you still can. I love to go back and make fun of the managers at the BB I use to work at. Especially the d*ck of a scheduling manager we had.

I totally agree. I love leaning and almost kneeing it down in a nice tight curve and slingshotting out the other side. I have only tried to hit uncomfortable speeds 3 times so far. Hit 105, 110, and then 120. I spend a lot of time riding familiar roads and taking turns and curves so that i can learn my bike more and more and be able to handle those turns with a perfect angle. I also spent a lot of time riding in the parking lot of my apt complex so that i could get the slow speed control down too. I haven't taken the MSF course yet but will in the future just because it is a smart decision. I just went to the dmv and did my written and driving there for now to be licensed. There is nothing like spending and entire day cruising on my bike though just touring the roads, hugging curves, and leaning. The feeling of control is awesome. Thanks again for making me feel at home LOL.

For some clarification i work with WGC_3 at Best Buy. He just wishes i was gay so that he could have a chance with me LOL. He does have a nice bike though. The Ninja 10R, makes mine look like a little girl LOL, but i am still happy with my 500.
