New rider...zx10r

What's up guys, blakk ninja here..I've always been into anything with an engine n wanted a bike for a while now n after watching a million YouTube videos I have jumped on my first bike (I know real corny). Everyone told me not to do a 1000 or a new bike for that matter but here I am on a 2016 zx10r and loving it. I wanna share my experiences with others that are in thinking about it. I expect to hear the shit talking bc I am a noob to this but after we get over that (if I survive the summer) I hope to get some good insight about my new machine, thanks in advance and here are some pics..

So I wanna say I am very impressed with this bike, not that I have ever rode anything else, but this bike makes me feel very much in control and confident, which is probably a lil dangerous. Between the ridind modes and traction control this bike is very manageable. They say in rain mode it feels like a 750 but with the traction control turn all the way up, you can literally hit the throttle anytime and the front wheel will not lift. I currently ride in sktrc3 and I can still feel the power take time to build up before she shoots out like a bat out of hell. In my opinion I feel like this 1000 with all of the technology is probably easier to ride than a 600. Does that make any sense? Any input?

BlakkNinja!!

Makes perfect sense, the newer 1000's are designed to turn and feel smaller. The newer 10R's are like the 600's of even a few years ago. R&D money well spent IMHO

Thanks mr_hones like I say I haven't rode anything before this, not even a friends 600 around the block n I've put 700 miles on it in 2 weeks n it's been amazing.
