Default New to Sportbikes.?

Let me try and get this accross first, before everyone gives me some asshole answers. If you don't have anything nice to say, then don't bother replying. Sorry, not to be rude, but my last question was bombarded with horrible answers. Ok.I have recently decided to buy (lease) a 2007 Suzuki GSX-R600 due to a (what I think) good deal at a local dealership. $8,000, price including all taxes and fees, free helmet, jacket, and gloves. Now, I have ridden dirt bikes before, many times (not a pro, but can handle alright), and I would like to ask for a general idea of how to ride one of these sport bikes. Now I'm not into racing, showing off, or stunting bikes, I like to have fun and drive 10 miles over the speed limit, that's it. I am planning on taking a Safety Course as soon as I get the bike, and a friend who is an experienced rider will be taking the bike home for me until I am ready to ride on my own. Let me know what to expect, and what to look for as a new rider. I'm looking to see what you other riders have to say, and to look back on what you guys did when you were new to motorcycles. Thanks.
