Thanks. I originally was going to purchase a Katana 600 new but figure better to start off with a used bike so I bought this 96 Yamaha YZF600 for 2500. I need to re-edit my profile.

Yeah... I started on an 03 gixxer 600. If I could do it again I would have just gotten a 750 or grand. I outgrew the 6 REAL quick. Fun to ride, just not enough balls :)

nice, sounds like a good deal too. good idea with getting a used bike first i think. too many people want to jump on fancy new liter bikes to start off with and it almost always goes bad. good plan, have fun and wear your gear :cheers

Nice ride, especially for a first one. Glad you have all your gear already, that tells me you're serious about riding. Just take it slow, get to know the bike, and take it to dinner on the second night. hehehe.

Thanks everyone for the positive comments. I've always wanted to ride but never got around to buying a bike. As for gear, I have everything including the pants. I never go with my jacket, gloves and helmet. I take safe riding very seriously. I currently take a Motorcycle Safety Riding Program course. I also purchased various instructional videos on safe riding.

I'm having trouble with reach on my bike. I'm thinking about lowering the suspension so I can be flat-footed. Any advice or suggestions guys?
