    yea literally had to pick my buddy up off the asphalt and drag him to the truck. it was rough. blood everywhere. and that was quite literally the week after he had finally gotten a pair of riding leathers. but apparently it was to hot for the gloves he bought... hahaha yea he regreted that. but yea long story short he totaled it and owes his life and some body parts to to his riding gear.

    have fun with it. im still waiting on my bike to show up for a good price. otherwise i couldnt afford one.

    he had his first one stolen and totaled the second. finally he just gave up and said it must not be for me i guess...

    thats one thing i dont want to happen. my parents own 2 funeral homes here so i see what can happen on these things. those ppl that have came in there are imbeded into my head. one thing you wont see me do is stupid things on this. i mainly just wanted one to ride. and another plus is its gotta be easier on gas than my truck lol

    Not the best starter bike but hey I started on a '03 600RR.. but starting on smaller bikes will make you a better rider. I do regret it.

    Just be careful and aware that everyone on the road IS out there to hit you. Trust me... Idiots here in WV suck.. Especially ones who can't stay on the f'ing road and kick up all the gravel and crap (happened to me this weekend on the interstate.. wasn't impressed)

    I can't tell you how many close calls i've had. Only 2 being my fault.. the rest all idiot drivers. Not sure how i've gotten so lucky? And good at controlling a skidding bike lol

    Have you put insurance on it yet? Hoping your parents are helping out with that?? When I was your age they wanted $200+ a month for full coverage in my name... Now that i'm old :( it's $50 lol was only $75 for my dear 1000RR that I miss like crazy.


    It's purdy though - even if everyone else on the road has one. :p (yes haterz gunna hate)
