yes...welcome and congrats! take your time familiarizing yourself with your bike. get good gear, ride within your limits and have a blast.

not to scare you or anything, but riding has it's risks. don't be a bonehead like me...this is what i did to my beloved 636 not too long ago :(

Welcome to the board, lots of excellent tips around here. Go through the faqs and be sure not to skip on gear. I recently got one, same color too :)

although the 07 white seem to be the faster color (for me at least), you nonetheless have a beast of a bike. treat it with respect, and it will love ya back.

and to you Mr. Toe, your Durranis have no match to these babies, which incidentally is on it's merry way to my doorstep :eviltongu

Take your time with the bike. This bike is very very unforgiving. I've seen several newbies get sportbikes and get stuck in a situation on the street and not know what to do-and have some bad wrecks. You'll be fine as long as you take it slow.

$300 that is rediculous, that will only discourage people from taking the class.

Welcome to the addiction, as said, get the gear and ride within your limits, but most of all enjoy the bike.

I can chime in on that question a bit...my cbr600rr is my first street bike. Previous to this bike I had only ridden dirt bikes a few times...and not for several years now. The biggest thing to learn as a beginner, at least for me, was slipping the clutch and controlling the throttle....smooth takeoffs. Unless you have absolutely horrible balance, then I could see that being the biggest obstacle. Luckily I have really good balance, I did ride BMX for years...don't know if that helped at all. lol

Oh and ride within your limits, as other have already stated. Learning on a bike like this isn't bad...unless you have no self control, which most people probably don't.

sigs should not exceed 500x150

good to hear from someone that learned on a 600... i did ride dirtbikes pretty crazy for a few years... took a spill off a jump and got pretty jacked up... so now i wanna take it to the street... i think ill have the clutch/throttle control in the bag... its just gonna be weird riding with traffic ya know..

thanks for your input..

It seems like it would be weirder than it is actually...I thought the same way but it doesn't feel that weird. Just start out during times of the day/roads that you know are less heavily congested.

sigs should not exceed 500x150

Welcome!

This is also my very first bike, and I love it so far. I'm taking things very slow. I'm only riding around my house until I get the feel for the clutch, throttle, and most importantly the brakes.

Congrats again!

why do you guys ask if theyve ever ridden a bike before? can you just buy a 600 without having ever even ridden a motorbike before?? what are your licensing laws like!

anyone of age can buy any bike of any displacement of his choice. i guess most peeps ask that question to determine past riding experiences. it is an unfortunate fact that most newbs who decide to start on a supersport end up getting seriously hurt.

i was at a local shop today and was shocked to see a white 07 RR, with less than 70 miles, totalled. and guess what, it was the poor fellas first bike.

Don't forget one of the most important pieves, a helmet. Good riding boots or the more causaul riding shoes would be nice. You may also want to consider a minimum of riding jeans from the likes of Icon. The denim is much thicker that typical jeans and the knees are triple layered with a kevlar inner layer.

same here. the RR is my very FIRST bike, no previous riding experience whatsoever. i took the MSF class first, then bought all my gear, and practiced, practiced, practiced! yes, i'm a newbie and sometimes a squid but i'm still alive and no accidents so far! (knock on wood) all i'm saying is that take ur time learning to ride and always wear proper gear. welcome to the site, have fun and be safe!:01_thumbu
