hey man nice pickup, myself being 19 also wanting a bike but i just take my fathers bike out ahha (zx-14) although i dont ride it as much as i want to due to the fact the bike is to heavy for me.
just keep it safe on the road. my thoughts when im on the road when a nice car comes by i think to myself "i know im faster and i can cut better then him, no need to show him".
also do remember theres are specific places to go speed on your bike such as a track, im pretty sure you can find one within 1-2 hours away from you to really to enjoy your bike correctly while being responsible for yourself and others.
for you to be able to race on your bike is having a clear visor, bike visor, and all your lights covered and have 60% + tired thread.
