Got My First Bike--grafitti

Finally after looking and saving for about a year I picked up my first sportbike- an 08 graffiti. Amazing bike and It was definitely a steal, mint condition, only 800 miles, $7500 bucks. Only thing one it right now are some frame sliders. Have only gotten the chance to ride it for about 20 miles as I wait to register it tomorrow or wednesday, will take some time gettin use to the stance but I love the bike.

First mod will definitely be a scorpio system, lots of bikes gettin stolen in the area, then some HID's and an akra slip.

I guess we could say "don't get hurt when you crash" but then again that sounds way too negative lol. So I will just say learning how to crash takes time. There is always a safer way to fall or jump off, think on it. Great bike, it's going to turn alot of heads, ride safe.

From a non-track perspective, do you still think the full boot is a requirement? I wear a mid-boot (higher than hightops) and think it provides good ankle protection.

The high full-boot seems a bit much to me.

I'm truthfully asking your opinion, not looking for grief.
