Thanks! I'm new to the bike forum scene, so I appreciate all the suggestions/warnings I can get.

andrewebay1 ^ I was just gonna say. Welcome Emily! You've come to a very knowledgeable group; should you have any moto-related questions I guarantee you'll have an answer within 30 mins of posting.


Man...I should make a fake female profile for when I need super fast replies.

K1w1Boy Welcome Emily, and rest assured that the sudden burst of man-charm across the boards has nothing whatsoever to do with your gender.

Nothing at all.

Dang. Now why didn't you guys bring that up on my garage thread?


Emily, changing oil is a breeze. Check some gixer (ahem, gixxer) forums for an oil change thread.

Good luck getting through the "what oil should I use" threads!

C'mon PV!! I'm not that bad!....

Welcome Emily it's nice to see another GSXR show up here, that blue sure is pretty! I have a 2000 gixxr 750 but its no where near as nice as yours!

There's a few gixxr bashers here but all in all this is a fun place to be with lots of good people

(And its 2!!! X's, PV and goog have been playin with each others tail pipes too long... Yes I went there)

I took the STAR course awhile ago... Not sure what MSF is.
MSF = Motorcycle Safety Foundation. The STARS course here in Idaho is an MSF course. So yes. You're now officially cool.

Most of us here would agree, the MSF course is a MUST for any new riders; basically because we get tired of repeating the same thing over and over for new riders, and it helps overcome some initial fears to riding that every new rider has to get over.

My next suggestion would be some riding boots, or even work boots of some sort that let you hide the laces and cover your ankles. Be careful of laces, they get caught!

Have you taken the MSF course?

We'll have to set up a group ride. Weather has been holding out a bit for us, haven't had to coop up the bikes quite yet.

Have you started accumulating riding gear yet?
Thanks Wes!

Well I have a riding jacket, gloves, and helmet but that's the extent so far.

Hey, where did you end up getting the bike from? On craigslist? I knew you were looking at some CBR600's on there a while back.

They are awesome bikes. My first bike was a 750 Nighhawk. I bought my '07 9'er new in 08, and haven't wanted for anything else since. Well, I was temped by the new CB1000r, but that didn't last long. Nice lookin' bikes by the way.
