New Rider from Cincinnati, OH k6 600

Hey all, I've been hanging around this site for quite some time. This is the first bike/motorcycle (which ever you go by) that I've ever owned/ridden. I've never even driven a manual car before hand, but so far so good. I've had it since about November last year and currently have put about 4,500 miles on it.

Only thing I've done different is a M4 shorty slip on and a pc III, and so far I've had to replace the battery, stator, and r/r which I've done myself, and of course oil changes. All thanks to you guys on easy instructions. Parents would never let me get a dirt bike or motorcycle, so now that I can afford one its the best thing ever. Just stopping by to introduce myself.

Re: New Rider from Cincinnati, OH k6 600

Welcome to the jungle bro. Looking good,get the passenger mounts powder coated black for a fresh new look. Also, get some kind of crash protection on her asap. Most of all do not get sucked in to acting like an ass hat on the street.Solid bike though, i had a k7 600 last year and really liked it.Good luck and be safe out there.

God I miss that bike...
Be safe, you already made a poor choice for a first bike, so try not to make any poor choices on the road with it.

Re: New Rider from Cincinnati, OH k6 600

Thanks all, and your right probably not the smartest first choice, I've had a couple heart dropping moments but luckily made all the right choices to save myself lol. Other than that yea I plan on getting some protection for the bike over the winter. As well as fixing some cosmetic scratches and the dent in the tank where the crease is that we're there when I picked it up.

Yer nice bike
Had a K7 750 looked very similar
On a K9 750 now but man 1st bike just go easy on it.
You learn more riding slower
If you have the cash get some instruction its like life time insurance.
Good luck and ride safe!
And welcome

Cheers
There is some cheap instruction that can help before you have the money I'm sure you have heard of Keith Code his book twist of the wrist 2 and there is a DVD as well all good stuff brakes down what the bike needs you to do to keep the ride smooth and get around corners.
Google him and his site will come up.
Good luck

There are lots of fantastic roads in northern Ky. Look around the Williamstown, Mt. Olivet, Falmouth area. Bad thing about them is they get tons of two wheeled traffic on nice weekends and some of the locals can be hostile due to this. I usually go pretty early if I head that way which cuts down on a lot of issues.
