I owned a 2005 zx6r- sold
a 2006 zx10r - stolen
a 2011 zx10r - stolen.
Things i would recommend...
drop the extra $400 and buy extended waranty. Unless you plan on selling it a year from now.
Trust me, im very glad i got mine. My brand new bike ( in 2006) engine blew apart... waranty rebuilt the entire thing.
Then 4 years later, the timing change slipped, and once again destroyed the engine... also rebuilt by waranty.
Although most bike owners will never experience such things, the extra $400 will ensure you never will.
also, leather gear is an absolute MUST. Along with the strap on back protectors.
It saved my spine in an accident.
My first bike was the Ninja 6R 600 which was a MONSTER... i foolishly jumped on to the 1000 bandwagon... which was really unneeded.. only upgrade when
you are able obtain the skills and are able to outperform the bike you have.
Would also recomend finding like skilled riders... be carefull not to ride with a crew outside of your abiliity.. trying to keep up with them will
ensure an accident... ride with people that are as skilled as you... you can find them online, or roll through town on a thursday and friday nights
for where the groups hang out in your town.
Being a solo rider gets boring very quickly.
enjoy and be safe!
