Welcome to the forum! I'm also new to riding and just bought a 650 custom. I agree with you it is a very fun bike. I think you will find this to be a great place to discuss your new 650 and to get advice. Folks here have been a big help to me already. Post a picture of that new bike of yours and stay safe!

Welcome to the forum. The 650 is a great starter bike or keeper for sure. So you're new to riding; how did you find the MSF course? Like Rlawrence said, you'll find some great folks here with lots of experience and some beginners with lots of questions . Post often, ask questions and post pics o that bad boy.

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.

Hey there Eddie and welcome aboard!!! You better post some pics soon or these good ole boys will eat you alive We have a whole bunch of family from Iowa and try to get out there from time to time. I'm from Colorado and like the low humidity and mountains. But I have many fond times as a kid growing up and visiting grand parents in Iowa.

Keep it frosty,

"run whatcha brung!!"
