It sounds like you're taking the notion of getting a sportbike a bit too lightly. With that kind of attitude, you could very well
be seriously injured, possibly even killed. Don't underestimate sportbikes and riding in general. I've been riding for over 7 years and have seen more than my share of things that can and will go wrong on a sportbike if you're not in the right mindset. That is, respect the bike and respect the power.
