New around here and new to bikes overall!

Hey guys, I'm brand new to the physical aspect of this but have years of youtube riding experience (if that counts for anything at all haha). I've had my mind set on buying a bike for at least the last five years and I finally went for it. I've always been partial to yamaha, always had yamaha sleds when I was a kid. When I started looking at bikes this year I went straight to yamaha and just about fell in love with the R3. Should be the perfect bike for a noob like me and I can't wait to ride it when the weather is right (which could be a little while since I'm in Connecticut). Happy to be here!

Welcome! I'm sure you'll love your R3, make sure to sign up for a safety class if you can!

Welcome. YouTube experience does not count. Get enrolled in a rider course and when you start getting comfy and want to learn more, there are a few track schools. Some track days give lessons anyways for no additional cost other than the track day.

Welcome to the forum, CT.
I also am patiently waiting for the nice weather to come back.
Winter seems so much longer when you have a bike in the garage.

Times like this I love living in the southeast where we get a nice week or two especially when it's in the 60's for a few days

Welcome! I'm up in Ontario in the Toronto area and believe me - if it's clear weather and more than 5 degrees Celsius I'll be heading out for sure. Hopefully the mild winter turns into an early spring

I did the yellow wheels and love the neon but the whole bike is being built for track
