New rider - First bike

New rider as of last Friday.

Well I passed my mod 2 last week and after months of research and bouncing from one bike to another on a daily basis I ended up narrowing my choices away from super bikes due to my multiple wrist fractures from being an outgoing clumbsy kid 🙈 and leant towards the naked bike scene.

After going sitting on a few bikes ended up narrowing the search down to a Triumph Street Triple R and the Yamaha MT-07 due to comfort and good reviews. A few seconds after passing my test i ended up in a show room looking at the MT-07 and it was nice..... But the MT-09 next to it just caught my eye and I could not resist so I ended up getting it out having a sit on it and a feel for it.

All in all ended up buying the MT-09 and I hope it doesn't scare me to much after I found out the amount of torque and power they have bottom/mid range.

Pick it up in 6 days.

Can't wait but very nervous.

Any advice for a new rider?
