Hi, i recently bought my first bike. i purchased an 06 ZZR 600 a week and a half ago. i was very hesitant at first. to be honest sitting on it at the dealership scared me a little. knowing that one little mistake could cost me alot of money, or my life. well i went ahead and made the jump into the two wheeled world and i can def say that it was a great jump. i have ridden my bike everyday and every chance i get. i love it!!!! i was reading posts that were talking about taking a riding course. i signed up for the abate course in my home town of Fort Wayne IN and it was only 75$. i know i should have probably gotten a smaller bike for my first but after riding it the first time for like twenty minutes, i can proudly say i was hooked!
