Welcome to the forum and congrats on the new V4! This a pretty serious model you've gone with for your first bike.
I second that along with meeting riders you can ride with. School teaches you a lot but another big part comes with hours and hours or riding, with the right influence.Congrats and be careful! Maybe do a riding school of some sort. I have had a lot of fast bikes including the Suzuki Hayabusa and GSXR-1000, and this bike is a lot faster than those. Enjoy the bike!
Tell me about it. Back when I was starting people called me crazy for starting with a 600cc sport bike and I agree to an extent. Its the furthest someone should go IMO.V4 as your first bike? I don't know what to think. Anyway I wish you lot's of luck, you may need it.
