Hi there, no flaming
I just got an 2001 R1 from a friend for a VERY cheap price, and i'm planning on keeping it instead of trading it, i have the patience and only need it to goto work a few kms from here.
I was wondering, if responsible, is this a bike something who has only ridden a few times could get used to. I picked up driving standard in 20-30 minutes, so it's not like i'm one of those hard learners.
I know theres alot of power behind it, i felt it when i got on and went to the end of the road. I haven't taken a turn, i just wanted some suggestions.
Because either way, im going to be taking it slow and learning. and not taking it on the highway or anythign stupid until I get very comfortable with it. As long as you respect what it's capable of, somebody can learn on an R1
