New here from Delaware. Just got a 93 Yamaha FZR 600 in trade for a quad. I have rode street bikes in the past very little compared to most owners do to never having a license to operate one. The bike needs a little work on it. Going for my license this spring. I did read this thread. http://www.sportbikes.net/forums/new-riders/354478-want-600-read.html . I didn't choose a 600. The deal just happen to fall in my lap. I'm going to take it easy for the first year. I admit that I will be getting on it straight line wise but no higher then 120. I just have to take my time to get used to it. The last thing I want to do is wreck. Do to not being a daily rider, I'm sure there will be some things that will make me a little nervous till I get used to riding.
