Hey, I guess I'd stop lurking and finally pull my finger out and register. I ride a 06 Honda VTR-250 (... oh no, bloody hell not another one!) and two weeks or so in on my P's. I was on my L's for six months and taking the advice of what I read here about and safety and maintenance and technique all that has been extremely valuable information thus far, so thankyou! I'll guess I'll just hang around like a bad smell and annoy you guys only once in a while with my nOOb questions... regards.
