Do us a big favor. When you get your bike don't worry about that fast acceleration right away (need to learn to stop that acceleration first). Get a feel for riding, take it easy. Have fun of course but just about any bike you get will have plenty of get up and go for your first bike. I highly reccomend the msf course if you havnt already taken it
Yeah, right when i get a bike im not planning on accelerating fast im just gonna get used to it and get the feel of the bike. I am planning on taking the MSF course before getting a bike but I understand why you were saying that,
You will find that when you start doing 30mph is plenty fast. The speed feedback you get on a motorcycle has nothing to do with a car.
And believe me, 34 bhp when you start is powerfull enough,
Scared myself once with my current bike (98bhp) twisted the throttle to see how far and how fast it would go, got up to 200km/h and decided that was good enough for me, thing is I was pushed back by the windforce and acceleration so much that it actually took me 5 good seconds at 200+km/h to gather enough force to push the throttle forward. Was scary .... Never pushed it since, max I do is 170/180 then the windforce gets to rough for me ...
I know this kid who had a ninja 250 and then he upgraded to a gsxr 600 and he is riding it like a maniac. I see him posting videos on Facebook going down a straight road doing like 150mph haha. His own friends recording that shit are mumbling "slow down, slow down" the whole time. It's bad man... Don't be that kid when you get your bike! Learn to ride like the guys said and don't go faster that you can handle
These guys are dead on at all levels listen to them and to ride another day
My GSXR will easily jump from 0 to well into god knows what(no speedo) fast enough to make ur head spin, it's definatly a handful!! I've had a few with no experience ask to ride it but the answer is always "NO" I am not going to be responsible when they stack it up at 100, that is...if they even get out the driveway
Take it slow man, learn the road, learn the bike and have fun!
