I posted in the welcome thread as well, but would also like to post here since it is my "new ride" \\/ Passed my L's on 23 Sep, and knew if I passed I wanted to get my hands on an italian bike.. Done 50k's, just around my local. So far absolutely enjoying the thrill of finally riding a bike. Haven't really taken it past 7000rpm, because honestly it starts climbing with the powerband and next thing you know I'm breaking the speed limit! With good time I'll get used to giving her some decent WOT. Oh yeah need to get some more protection gear, so prob this weekend, some shopping to do. More pics to come hopefully soon!
