Gear up. Don't get stupid. Most of your experience is on dirt; take things slow for the first few thousand miles. You don't want to fuck around on the street with these assholes texting or hitting the kids.
Ended up getting the FZR600 Genesis. I think it's a good choice. I love the rush and have no problems whipping it around! I'm in a rural part of NC, so this bike is perfect for curves. The power to handling ratio is amazing.
Well, you asked for advice and then, like so many, ignored it because you're 'good' and you've been around.
If you get through a couple of years without a wreck you'll find that you've learned to restrain the bike to the point where most riders with similar experience will be blowing you away.
I don't drive it like an idiot... I usually shift at about 6k or even 4k rpms. locknload i never said i was a professional but why would i buy a 500 when i could have a 600 that I liked more?
You don't realize that the 600 is a street legal race bike, and has about 3x the horsepower of the 500. You need to do more research, you are not ready to buy any bike at this point.
Please do your research, the 600cc is 4 cylinder and will be unforgiving. Any wrong move and it can cause you serious injury or death. I'm not playing around. Read and do research and listen to the good advice on this thread/forum
