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..

Where is a good place to run Track Days in the DFW area?
