Sweet. No life insurance needed, just be safe and smart, and take it to the track to go fast. I've had stupid cage drivers come so close to hitting me way to many times.
Not sure how long you've been riding, but a bike is much more than a toy. You must respect it.
Anyway, have fun! And remember to always wear your gear.

The CBR just doesn't fit in without a turbo... so sad...

Have fun with that though man. The F4i is one of my favourite bikes, faster than anyone needs, but comfortable enough (if you're young anyway!) to take on semi-long trips. Honda builds great cars, and better motorcycles, you'll enjoy it I'm sure.

Don't cry too much the first time drop that thing!!
Just playin, but its true. Everyone goes down sometime. Also, I'd suggest a MSF course if you are just starting out. They will teach you good habits and help you get comfortable on a bike.
Good luck!

avoid corners with wet leaves or loose gravel... and dont drive that thing when youre tired, or mad... stay focused

my buddy dropped his bike going around a corner with a bit of gravel on the road. he was wearing a t-shirt and shorts. he got tatoos on his forearm and calf to cover the scars from road-rash.

my buddy isnt all that smart, considering what he was wearing, and considering he accelerated on his way out of the corner...

Not sure where you are from, but ya, they should have a course near you. Its like 200 or 300 bucks for 2 full days. THey will teach you essentials if yuo've never ridden before.
Sorry to harp so much, I've just heard so many stories of people who didn't know what they were doing crash and die within a few miles of even leaving the dealership. You seem pretty easy going so you'll probably adapt just fine.
And that is a fine machine that you've got there. Once I'm done learning, and thrashing my zx6r, i'll probably get a new honda too!

Ride safe and keep the shiney side up!

I think it was around 200 when i did it. But i don't rightly remember. i did get some sort of discount though because I was under 21 back then.

**shrug**

Either way, 100 bucks or 200 bucks, its a good investment.

Tom, when I was up in Laconia last weekend I couldn't belive all the people riding around with no helmet and no gear. it was exceedingly hot, but I'd rather be sweaty and alive, than cool and die.
My buddy and I were even approached by the Coors girls to take them back to their bungalo. Why? Probably because we looked the safest since wew ere the only ones wearing helmets and jackets.
