Start in a class you feel comfortable with , I said 1000's because you can well handle the tuono , I chased you enough this season !!! The ss600's are a bitch to qualify in , the 1010's are easier . Pre 97 is a good class to start there's a good mix of riding abilities and it's relativity inexpensive to get started , having said that the sv is probably the way to go if you're used to the v twins , again cheap enough to get started and a good mix of riders , plus you're less likely to mince yourself . One bit of advice , you'll need to get your body off the bike more , you were giving it some amount of throttle on the edge of the tyre , ye scared me a few times

That explains it , wasn't slowing you down
Get your medical done before you go buying bikes just in case there's a problem passing , I don't know the in's and out's of the rules .

That would be brilliant, and i know Bow leg is interested too so you never know it might be a good biking year. the 400 class is supposed to be good too and also not too expensive
