New rider in VA. 757.

Hey everyone. I'm new to riding and I just bought my first bike, a high mileage 2004 Yamaha R1. It has 42K miles but has been taken care of and to my knowledge has been serviced and maintained properly.. it's Shadow Gray, and I don't know much about the bike yet. I'm scheduled to take the safety course next weekend.
See ya.

Congratulations on the new bike. That's a lot of machine for a first bike.
Good on you for taking the safety course.

Welcome to the forum!

757?? I'm in Newport News. If you need any help with your bike or have questions-shoot me a PM.

Like Tad stated respect the bike and gear up! Especially in this area-cars have no respect for 2 wheels!

I live in Suffolk VA. So all the way down south lol. But I wouldn't mind a ride up north.. I moved to Suffolk from Frederick MD so I'm familiar with that area.

You have to do the Yorktown Parkway to the Surry Ferry ride when the weather gets better!
