I hope I can learn from many of you guys and your experiences

Re: New in every sense

Seriously? Sell the 750, and start on something small, like a Ninja 250, CBR 250, or even an SV650. The 750 is not the bike to learn on.

Re: New in every sense

REALLY??? Not another one.

Look, I'll put it nicely bc many others won't. First off, Buying ANY R bike, even a 600, for a beginner is nearly a death sentence. So you decided to buy a 750? You have no license and no experience. You need to take your MSF course, then start out slow, like a ninja/cbr 250 or ninja 300. These SS bikes are very unforgiving and the common excuse that you will "respect" the bike and the power it has is unruley. Read some of the stickies on this site and research. I ride a 750 and I have been riding for years. Still more than enough bike for me. And this is the first bike you have wrapped your leg around?

Sell the bike or park it for a year or so and do yourself a favor and buy a smaller bike as a starter.

Not like anyone will change his/her mind.... so yeah. If you already shelled out the cash for a brand fucking new bike, you have more money than sense anyway.

You should have started doing that by reading any of the dozens of threads in the Starting Line about why a sportbike is the worst choice for a new rider, much less a 750 and a brand new one at that...

Do yourself a huge favor & listen to the comments made above before you trash your new bike & put yourself in the hospital.

Re: New in every sense

I rode a 2-stroke 125cc dirt bike w/ plates everywhere for my teenage years, then eventually got my first road bike: a '79 CB650 w/ 50k miles. The equivalent of a current Triumph Bonneville (>500 lbs, ~70 hp at best), but a lot cheaper to fix when I dropped it -- which I did, a lot. Switching to sport bikes was fun -- after I was ready, a few years and lots of miles under my belt. If you want a new sport bike now, the Ninja 300 is supposed to be amazing. My wife is on her second year on an old-gen Ninja 250, and still learning the performance envelope of that worthy bike. Broken levers and turn signals are cheap and easy to fix. When you find yourself on the ground under a 250, you can probably pick it right up off you. Not so on a new GSXR750. These people are flaming you because they care -- we all want you to live. Whoever sold you, a new rider, a 750, was irresponsible. You'll have a lot more fun on a lighter, smaller bike for the first 10,000 miles.
