That's the kind of attitude is why much of the world dislikes the US.

Winding it up to 10,000 1-3, that's exactly why members here are getting on your shit, because you're riding recklessly, I wonder what gear you have? I'm betting full squid attire.

Since you're riding in November I can only assume you're somewhere far south and/or west of myself, thankfully this means I'll never have to see you on a road near me.

Been riding at least an hour everyday, my shifting is very smooth, changing lanes is great, turning is getting better but need to work on downshifting while entering a turn.. I wound it up to 10,000 running through 1-3 gears, I finally got it to scream guys, it was great. If I leave the throttle cracked slightly while quick shifting, its smooth as silk. Did an oil change today, 4 quarts of kawi 10w40 and a kawi filter. Also replaced the brakes, front/rear pads cost about $90 from the factory. My lever pull is still extremely long, I'm guessing a good bleed is necessary.
This one time I jumped out a 27th story window... At about the 5th floor I said to myself, "this isn't going to bad."

He means you're going in over your head. Of course you think you're doing fine and perfectly safe.
EVERYONE thinks that until the eat shit and wipeout (and doing 10k in 3rd means you're doing at least 90mph, without proper experience one tiny mistake and you're fucked.)
Dude most of us are trying to look out for your safety. You're pushing the bike too far with the experience you have, or rather lack there of.

You don't realize what you're doing wrong.

Riding a bike is actually completely counter intuitive, EVERY single instinctive reaction is the wrong one. The things your body is programmed to do, the things that ensure your survival under normal circumstances are the WRONG things to do on a bike. They will crash you, and they may kill you.

You need to learn (in a safe environment) how to control your natural instinctive reactions and replace them with the reactions that will save your life when shit hits the fan.

That's the point everyone is trying to make... you haven't ended up in a situation yet where your inexperience is a danger to you. And without proper training the first time something goes wrong WILL be a painful learning experience.

It's easy to think you're doing everything right when you're in your situation... you've only ridden under normal conditions (GF's brother is in the same situation) and because nothing bad has happened yet, he assumes he knows what he's doing.

I don't know how to state this in any simpler way... For all intents an purposes you're juggling a loaded gun with the safety off and saying because it hasn't gone off yet you're fine.

Reminds me of this guy... "Anyways, The first few weeks, I respect the 600, I knew it had enough power to kill me. So I respected it, and now 3 months down the road, I can say I have mastered it down, and in a year im looking to get a 1000." He's a badass..

Be sure to post up your crash pics. We want to see the missing skin.

That's one of the first things you're taught NOT to do.

That's not even anywhere near screaming on a 600. You just started to get into the power band. Hell, 10,000 isn't even peak on a 1000.

Shouldn't have taken the full 4 quarts on a 636 as I recall.

Should have been more for front AND rear aftermarket or OEM, unless you got some shit-tier hong kong knock offs guaranteed to fade.

I've been notified through pm by a few members here, that you are a know it all prick and are all too often wrong, so with that said.. front pads were $45 rear pads were $45 from my local dealer. 4.2 quarts of kawi non-synthetic and a kawi filter cost me $65. You need to stop hating on my thread dude, Hong Kong or kawi, all pads will fade..
