Evening all, itís been many years since Iíve been part of an owners club, but then again (due to family) itís been many years since Iíve had a toy which I was so into as I am my bike!

Passed my DAS 2 weeks ago, and already had my bike waiting for me tucked away in my garage. Go easy on me, SOME PEOPLE say a sports bike isnít suitable for a beginner, but itís a bike Iíve always wanted so after hearing advice from both sides, I decided to go for it. I bought me CBR600RR-7 a week before passing my test and Iíve put 400miles on it since (whoops!).

Completely standard apart from a Scorpion can, I must say, I am absolutely hooked. No real plans to change anything yet, as you can imagine thereís not really any need to.

I work for Pirelli Tyres so have a lot of people I can ask for help through work regarding bikes in general, but thought a more knowledgable group would be more beneficial when I get to know it better. Not really had much mechanical experience with cars, so other than basic things Iím running a bit blind at the moment!

She's a gorgeous looker!

As CaBaRet says, do what the hell you want. Sounds like you're not a teenager and have got more than fresh air between your ears, so enjoy yourself.

Welcome to the forum.

Nice looking ride. There are a lot worse bike to start out on. The biggest mistake is to start out with a heavy bike, you did good.
