First time rider at 40 years old - yeah, it's kind of a mid-life crisis.

Bought a new 2015 red and white R3 last week after taking the MSF course.
My instructor took me out for my first ride on the R3, and I just kept thinking "this was a really good decision." I'm loving riding, the R3, and all the awesome roads here in Colorado.

Looking forward to swapping tips.

I'm 40 and bought my R3 this summer as well. Been riding off and on for 20 years. Do you guys ever get together and ride?

Welcome! As a beginner you will find the R3 nicely nippy with the top 30% of the power band reserved for slightly terrifying. Enjoy it safely.
