Just signed up, just wanted to say hi. I bought my '06 500R in January, my first bike. This was just a couple of weeks after taking the MSF, so it's truly been a learning experience. I live in Orlando, and was using it to commute within a few days of buying it. I took my first road trip over spring break, going home to visit family in Chattanooga TN and also hitting the twisties that I've missed so much in Florida. I'm a grad student at UCF, and work in a restaurant, but will hopefully be teaching middle school or high school before too much longer.
