So I got my learners back in 2013 and bought a GS500F, it was a great bike to learn on, not too small and plenty of go to take off faster than (most) drivers. I enjoyed it but it wasn't really enjoying riding it anymore, just too slow and could sometimes be a bit difficult to start. Checked out a couple of CBR900RR 929's on the weekend, one with 36,000km's on it, looked to be in great condition but came without a RWC or registration, had low tread and a full exhaust which I thought would be a tad tricky to get past road worthy, the last thing I wanted was a bike I would have to spend 2-3 weeks and almost $1000 on just to get it on the road. Saw another one the next day, only 19,000km's with rego and RWC, new tyres and a fresh service. So I bought it. Only thing is I'm a little scared to be moving up to an (almost) 1000cc super sports. I was looking for a 600RR but had some advice that they would be a little buzzy on the freeway etc. I'm considering getting a Scotts steering stabilizer as these bikes apparently have a tendancy to have a wobbly front end accelerating out of corners. Is it really necessary for street riding? Any tips for the first ride home? It's a totally different riding position to what I'm used to from the hips up.
