Hey Y'all

After years of riding dirt i am finally beginning my new adventure for the street. I picked up my new to me 2008 GSXR 600. It got 8400 miles and a few mods. The PO is a good friend of mine so i know the bike is not ragged out. When i rode it yesterday i feel like i am taking babysteps riding again. I'm used to riding YZ and CRFs, this bike is a lil more difficult to turn. But in all i love the power and i love the ride. I hope to use this as a daily commuter.

Any recommendations or comments are welcome!

Starting off with a GSXR? Doesn't sound like baby steps is really your thing...

I meant baby steps as having to learn the new ergos on this vs a motocross bike....

Just remember to look further ahead as you WILL be going faster than on your Dirt bikes!! I love riding race rockets.. Have fun with the new bike but don't stay away from the dirt too long, or you will get rusty real quick..

Check out Ridesmart track days. The 2 local tracks local to DFW are Cresson Motor Sport Ranch on 377 SW of Benbrook and Eagles Canyon on 51 between Decatur and Gainsville just south of TX 455.
