I've been lurking here for a while and figured it was about time I joined up.

I'll finally be picking up another bike today after departing with my last 250 in September. (If only I didn't have music gear to haul around.) I'm finally in a position to have another bike and it'll be an 05 ZX6r. Does anybody here that has made the transition have any tips for me? I've had a few years of experience on a couple of 250s but after laying my first down it took me a while to get back on a bike. I just don't wanna get myself into any trouble with all that power at my disposal.

Thanks everybody. I got my endorsement through MSF and I've done a couple of skills and cornering clinics with them as well. Probably wouldn't hurt to get into an advanced rider course after I get the rust off.

It's very red. :) A buddy got a Ninja 1000 and wants me to start riding again so he's selling it to me for $3200. Clean title, 17,000 miles, all maintenance done, fresh tires, HID lights, new LEDs for the Tach, lojack, and an Akrapovic slip on. Also a few goodies like a pitbull stand and a front wheel lock. I couldn't pass up the deal. I'm really looking forward to riding it everywhere I go.

Nice ride! Good to have you on the site too. I know how you feel about not being able to pass up a deal. My friend wants to trade me his SV650 for my ninja... I'm still going back and forth Arrgg! But as spooph said... the best advice is to not let it get to your head and you'll be ok.

Thanks guys! FHG, I understand the temptation there. From what I've experienced (I've ridden a few SV650's and SV1000's) the SV650 is a nice street fighter but I prefer the SV650S which has full fairings. The wind doesn't beat the crap out d you as much and they're very fun bikes to ride.

Welcome to the board man,

Where abouts are you from?

Be just to come back and let us know how your first ride went with it. It will all come back to you quickly im sure. Just be careful like others said, push your skills in small increments.

Thanks Stealth, I'm from Seattle but I'm going to school in Arizona right now.

I've been riding it to work and school since I got it around the middle of the month and so far it's a great bike. I probably need to change the oil soon, but other than that it's a lot of fun. You were right about the skills coming back. It feel like I never took a break from riding! :thumb:

Oh, lol well hopefully whoever hit that deer is alright. I've never had to worry about coming across one on the road, but I'm pretty grateful for that. I couldn't really get comfortable on any of the SV650s I've ridden, but they were still a lot of fun.
