    Talking New Rider, New GSXR600 owner, New to the Site

    Hello everyone, I ride a GSXR600 03 model. I have ridden a few times when I was younger and always had the itch for bikes. I decided to do the right thing and take a beginner class at our local college here in Charleston, SC. I plan on going back and taking all the classes that are available. I must say it was the best $225 I have ever invested. Great site so far.....

    to the forum, be careful that bike is more than a handful for a new rider.

    There is a slight chance a few people may have an opinion about your bike and new riders!

    Be safe!

    Just make sure the itch your scratching isn't the scabs from the road rash.

    Question

    Didnt know that riding courses would be available thru jr.colleges. think Ill look up whats around here. Im going to buy a c50t. I wanted a light crusier between 500 and 750 ccs. Saw the c50t and fell in love. Its a littlebit more bike than I was looking for but Ive been told more than once thats the way you should buy em. what about this bike ? anyone got experience with them?
    Whats best about them? Whats worst? Does that radiator up front cool the engine or just the engine oil?

    Hi and

    I have a GSX-R600 too and I love it.
    It is a mighty bike so as everyone says, be careful and be gentle with the controls. You can go flying with a weeeeee bit too much on anything.
