Thought I would say hello to everyone. I just bought an 02 warrior on Saturday. Its pretty much my first bike. I have a little dirt bike experience and about 50 miles on the street between a little honda 200 and my buddy's v star. This site actually helped me to decide to go ahead and get it. Did some searching on here about the Warrior for a first bike and it seemed like people on here were about 50/50 for it as long as one has good self restraint. Ive just been putting around my developtment a little getting used to taking off on the beast and turning it. So far I love it and cant wait till I get it out on the road. I was happy to find that it is easy to ride it nice and slow if I want, but I opened it to about 1/4 throttle and could tell that it'll be a rocket if you want it to be. Torque is nice! Thanks for helping me to decide. I was between this and a sportster and I couldnt be happier with my decision!
