Nice pick! Be safe, don't get cocky, and keep the wheels down Enjoy the ride dude, its even better than a jeep with the top/doors down.

Just so I can sleep at night without worrying about if I should have said it or not, I am going to be the "older" "reasonable" "party pooper." Don't ride with a passenger until you got a few thousand miles under your belt.. in fact a full season is usually best. When you do start riding 2 up, make sure you do all your parking lot practice with a passenger before you hit the roads. The bike will handle much different with a passenger, and she can even control the bike from the back if she doesn't know how to ride "b%$^" and you aren't ready to keep the bike going the way you want it.

i've never seen that happen and i'm not planning on changing it. I've seen other cars slam on the bikes though because apparently they cannot judge how fast the bike is going .

I just got home from the dmv.. these people seriously need to work a bit. They get today off, monday off. How screwed up is that? You go to the dmv, you wait for hours for the only 1 person working on the counter while the rest are on lunch, they get like a week off for every holiday and probably a month for december. It's bull crap.

I also went and bought a nice and somewhat bright DOT approved helmet so as soon as the dmv is open and those people feel like working, i can go and get my registration done.

Distorted and I witnessed that happen about a week back. Guy ran right into the back of a car. Hauled him off in the ambulance. Scary sight. I would kill myself on 2 wheels.

Usually being the key phrase there. Doesn't work too well when you got a performance or sporty sedan in front or you with big discs and ABS and you lock the back brake on the bike. Than its not so good for the bike Besides, not all bikes have amazing brakes. My little Yamaha has cardboard for brakes Still fun though.

Just be careful dude, but don't let people scare you outa riding. Don't be one of this stupid little kids going 150 mph on one wheel or weaving through traffic. Enjoy the ride, and be careful. Not many things better in this world right now than hopping on a bike, and riding as long/far as you want without having to care about the cost of gas or where you are going

We had one accident in town many years ago where a bike hit a stopped car. His passenger went over the handlebars, the car they hit, and under the car in front of that! Needless to say she didn't fair to well.

Low and slow. until you learn to handle the beast

I bought my last girlfriend a Ninja 500R. It's a great starter bike for people who are just learning to ride. Don't plan on doing too many wheelies, though. It's only a 500 parallel twin and doesn't make much power......however it can still get you in trouble, so be careful. Enjoy!!

And now you can post whenever we have a "Who on the forum rides?" thread!!
It's a fun lifestyle, but never lose the notion that everyone on the road is trying to kill you. Know that, ride defensively, and don't overstep your comfort zone because even a little 500 will humble a person quickly if let off the chain.
