Hi everyone. I've been lurking on this forum for a while till now, the reason being that I got my bike today . I got the ABS version, and am loving it so far. I rode for about 15 minutes today and noticed more than a few places where I could improve, hope to practice some more, maybe some of the stuff from msf. Currently I'm in the process of reading the owner's manual, it will be interesting. Oh yea i'm in so cal, so I would love to meet with any others once i get fairly proficient in street and or freeway riding.
