Hi all, Just realised theres a bike forum here, so I thought I'd make a post in here as well as offtopic Just picked her up a few days ago, Kawasaki ZX-2R got about 50 thou on the bike, engine has been replaced cause it died from something rubbing and getting metal filings into the cylinders turning it to shit. New engy has about 10 thou on it. New tyres, fork seals and recently been serviced and its got a snazy looking aftermarket pipe to boot. Not too keen on the purple paint, but I couldn't pass it up for $3.5k aud. Hey its my first bike anyway the likelyhood of putting it down is quite high anyway. Not like its green and pink or something. Didn't skimp on the gear either spent about 1k aud so far on just a jacket, gloves and lid Been driving a cage for 3.5 years and I've done 1 day out of the 2 of my Q-Ride course (similar to your riding course) and loved it so far, will come out of that with an open license but I opted for a 250 as a first bike so I'll stay alive a bit longer and I couldn't afford a bigger bike atm anyway being fresh out of uni. Took her for a burn yesterday with my dad following who is a licensed rider and hit the power at about 10 grand and nearly shat myself Can't wait to hit it again, the rush was awesome! I'm absolutely loving it! Saving up for riding boots and draggins once the bank balance recovers, bit low atm heh So what do yas think of that as a first setup?
