    New rider from mass

    What's going on guys name is jona from waltham.
    Recently got a great deal on a 04 Yamaha R6. I'm
    A new rider this year so I've been practicing in open parking lots and riding
    With experience riders for the past two months, going to a MSF course in August.
    Excited to learn more about the site and my bike and hopefully can do some meet n greets
    heres a pic of my R6 first day i brought her home

    Welcome (also) from Waltham. Make sure you take advantage of that MSF course, you're better off practicing hard and dumping their bike, than half-assing it at the course and dumping yours.

    Good luck!

    Welcome. I just started riding this year as well but took the MSF course before ever even hopping on a bike. Invest in some good gear and read around and watch videos on technique and defensive driving, etc. it'll help alot.

    Yea I def ride with gear def not those type of dudes that say gear is uncomfortable that I hear all the time, I have some get gel paded gloves with hard plastic knuckles basic riding gloves I bought before I saw all the real mesh gloves I could of invested in, I also have a joe rocket all weather jacket for know from GBM for 90, I def take riding serious As it can be fun and dangerous at times.... As for videos I've watchig alot of counter steering videos to help me out n the streets for turns and avoiding objects instead of hard braking

    Welcome! I had an 05 R6 and it was a blast, until I got over the racebike fad. Enjoy it, gear up, and stay safe!
