i've been reading every thread possible over the past 2 months or so, trying to decide were to buy a bike, what kind of bike to get, what school to go to, and any tips, trick or advice on riding. now finally i started my course at action yesterday, so far so good, and i'm all set to get my bike by the end of this week, including all my gear aswell. i ended up deciding on the 2006 CBR600RR (go ahead and flame me if you would like to, everyone here seems to love to get in on alittle good old fashion flaming), and i made sure i didn't skimp on gear either. i got myself a Shoei X-11 helmet, Alpinestar SMX Boots, Shift Perf. Leather jacket, and Joe Rocket Leather gloves with hard knuckles, all thanks to the advice from everyone on this site. i am also shopping for a 1 piece and riding pants right now.
hopefully i get a chance to get out to some of the newb rides really soon, and does any one have any last bits of advice on anything to do with riding....
Thanks for all the help so far.
