    1st ride

    Just in case that anyone cares, all I wanna say is that SATURDAY WAS FUCKING AWESOME!!!! I just got my YZF600R on friday. Since I'm a newbie to the whole street riding thing it took a little getting used to, but I'm starting to get the hang of it.
    Not that I've ridden any other bikes, but from a newbie point of view, this is a great bike. Very comfortable, very forgiving and I absolutly love it. It has nice pickup. I could only try to imagine how fast the R6s and R1s are . :o. Saturday was such a perfect day. I went everywhere. I took it out on sunday also but that sucked. It was way too cold and windy. But I couldnt help it. I was itching to take it for a ride. I can't wait summer. I can't wait to meet some of you more seasoned riders out there. Maby you could share a few tips and tricks with me. Sorry to ramble but I'm just so psyched!!

    Aman, good for you. I just started riding last year and know what it feels like the first time out. Its a great feeling, the best part is that feeling never goes away. This sport is great, and most the other riders you meet are great to.

    Oh yeah, and for anyone else that didn't get a chance to ride saturday. I went out and it was fuckin beautiful.

    I screwed that up at first too. Just putting in your username and stuff doesn't save the cookie. If you actually go to Login on the main area of the board and, er, log in... It'll save it.

    You're all so quick to blame the software! There will be an upgrade to these forums coming soon. I've been saying that for quite some time now, but this time it really looks like it's going to happen. In the meantime...log in.
