New rider from Georgia

Hello everyone, my names Mike. I've been riding for about 2 months now. I have a 2006 Honda 599 Hornet. I've heard this forum mentioned over there on Honda 599 Forum - Powered by vBulletin and hondahornet.co.uk • Index page, so I figured I'd come register over here.


Here's a pic of my bike. It's not great. (Cell phone pic).

Hey Mike. Great beginners bike if not one with more power than needed.

If I may blab a bit of safety:


Use the Bigdaa Method of preserving your skin out on the road:

"90-95% of your faculties to stay alive, the rest to enjoy the ride"

That came after decades of experience to me and to others I'm sure.


Grab a ice cold barley pop, a slice of pizza and sit a spell.

Welcome to the jungle. We've got fun and games.

When I die I want to die peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather did....not screaming in horror like the passengers in the backseat of his car.

Welcome from South East Lower Alabama! The 600's are very popular in Europe and they are a great bike to begin with, and not only that. Have fun with your ride!

Welcome. I think GA has some of the best roads in the US. Congrats on the bike.
