Nice first bike!! Ride it. A lot. You've done the MSF, so never forget - everyone else is going to turn at you at any time, for no reason, so never let your guard down and always have an escape plan. Be defensive, give space and you won't end up under that SUV. The life-saving paranoia frame of mind becomes second nature eventually and takes nothing away from the riding fun. Watch accident videos on you tube (yes, really) - learn from other people's mistakes, not your own! Accidents are almost all completely avoidable. And whenever you're doing anything to your bike which is not a necessary repair or standard maintenance, say 10 times... "if it ain't broke don't fix it". This forum is full of people wanting help fixing something they just did to their bikes themselves.
To finish on a lighter note - you've got yourself an excellent versatile machine... let it put a big smile on your face.
