New forum member from SoCAL

Hello,

I'm a new forum member and a new K6 GSXR 1000 owner. I've ridden for years, but never anything this big, and I don't really need anything this big. I'm too scared and neurotic to go fast, though; so, that'll probably keep me alive. I can and do drive 55.

Welcome Jim , it's amazing how we don't feel the need to go fast all the time as we did when we were younger !!!

Make sure to post some pics of your baby ...

Hey there Jim,

Nice to see you got a bike like mine.

No need to go fast just enjoy the pull those handle bars gives you when you twist your wrist one little bit.

That should be enough

At least you'll be safe in the slow lane going 80.

He'll be safe as long as its not a Florida highway. The shoulders on certain Florida highways are littered with 250's&300's that have been run over by cars&trucks whilst attempting to merge....
