New member from Long Island, NY

What's up guys. First time RC owner here, stepping up from a 2000 929 fireblade. Picked up and all original, unmolested, low mile 2001 SP1 from NJ a month or so back, and have been going over usual maintenance things (oil change, plugs, tires, etc). This bike is a completely different animal from the nimble little 929, but is so much more satisfying to ride, and that twin has the most awesome thump to it. I'm not the most experienced riser out there, but I am looking to become more serious about riding, as I have recently discovered a track with open track days and safety courses in upstate NY. I don't ride crazy on the street, as I don't really have the confidence to push these things like they were meant to be ridden, so I'm looking to gain some track experience, where safety is a little more abundant. I will hopefully be here regularly picking the veterans brains, and making some new friends along the way. Ride safe guys!
