  1. Hi All,

    Just a quick note to say hi!

    I've recently passed my practical test after having my L's for 8 years...and I'm still trying to work out why it took me so long!

    I ended buying an MT-07 about a month prior to my test and that was all the encouragement I needed. Such a great fun bike(not that I had much to compare to).

    So still finding my feet and getting used to riding, doing all the good learner things like poor shifting, choppy throttle and the death grip but hopefully as time progresses these things will dissipate allowing me to enjoy it all the more!!

    A couple of quick questions before I head off and do some forum searches, has anyone tried the R6 throttle mod for the MT07? and any suggestions for track days to improve my skills?

    Cheers and look forward to contributing to the forum.

  2. welcome aboard :)

    Don't worry about any modifications to the MT07 till you've learnt to ride the pants of her ok, they are quite a sweet little bike and well set up for beginners so don't go stuffing around with something that ain't broke :(.
    Do as much training / courses as you possibly can, ride days are good but some tracks won't allow L platers so check first, also check their gear requirements, some require full leathers others just good riding gear, ALL will require a separate back protector (this is a Motorcycling Australia rule), the one fitted into most jackets is fine for a small off on the road but useless at any sort of race track speeds.
