    New rider. Passed M2 with RTI

    Hey guys. Ive been lurking the forum for awhile and i thought its time to register and greet/thanks everyone for their helpful posts.

    To start, i wasnt all into bikes at all. Im sure that some of the members here fell in love with bikes when a buddy or 2 got bikes. It all started with me helping a friend with his bike. From there on, more friends got bikes. I guess youcan say jealousy. So anyways i jumped the gun and grabbed my M1 and scheduled for my m1 exit course through rti a following week.

    Just want to say that it was a lot of fun!

    I now hold an M2 license and planned on jumping on a cbr600rr. Since insurance is so high i decided that this may not happen or have to hold for awhile

    Now im planning on getting a 70s cb 550 as a starter bike as it has potential and a great starter.

    I dont plan on riding this year as the season is almost over.

    I plan on having my gear ready by next season.

    Im ready to spend up to 1.5 in gear. I believe that spending this much will help me from any downtime if i happen to get into altercation with another vehicle

    Gear:::
    gloves: gautlet
    helmet:'white
    suit: 2 piece
    boots: full protection

    i know everyone have their own different taste when it comes to protection. I respect their decision as they're of age to be responsible and smart.

    Thanks guys

    As for now, ill be lurking the forum as im not really a rider yet (must own a bike thats legally operational in the road)

    The CB 550 will be a nice vintage bike to own. I may plan on riding in 2015 rather than next season if budget is tight.

    Ill also want to have my gears before i start riding.

    Haha yea. I wasn't planning on getting a bike anytime soon but i guess i found a nice deal so I'm going ahead for it.
    Ive ask my buddy if i can ride his bike around the neighbourhood whenever theres a chance to. I cant stop leaning and downshifting. Motorcycles... So fun but dangerous

    Congrats on getting your M2. I got mine from RTI this year as well and right away got myself a bike. I cannot even being to mention just how much I've learned this year. The more you know ,the better it gets
    Kawasaki charges ten dollars for every CC that the ZX14 R churns out ! Anything extra is the dealership's way of thanking you for buying this vehicle off of them.
