Welcome to the Gixxer club
Very nice bike. Noticed you have been riding for 2 months, be very careful that is a lot of bike for a beginner. Just nurse it for a while.

It is beautiful. Have fun and be safe. Make no mistake, that bike can get you in just as much trouble as the 1000. I know you already said you would, but please be careful.
