Welcome and there is no shame in being new with little knowledge. We all started at the same place at some point. As long as we keep learning all is well!

Welcome, from NW Washington!

I only joined a short time ago and you will find the people on this forum are amazing! So helpful and just excited to be on two wheels. Looking forward to your posts and congrats on your new bike!

I had my 2007 650 for 4 years and loved every minute of it. Welcome to the group!

A little reading for those sleepless nights...http://www.650ccnd.com/ht.htm
I would recommend picking up a copy of a repair manual also. Invaluable if you plan to wrench on it yourself.
