New Rig, ZX10R

Guys,

Just bought a new toy yesterday, 2005 Kawasaki ZX10R. It's got low k's, and is fairly stock. I will probably just put some good tyres on it, tweak the suspension, put on a damper, and that is it. Will be used on the road and on the track.

Yeah looks like it, it is the original owners, the pics are taken by the original owner. I'll be sure to snap some pics of her in my garage when I get home from work in a couple of weeks.

I trusted the owners word over the phone and bought it sight unseen, he sounded like an honest dude. If I had of left It until I got home someone else would have probably bought it first.

R13, why do you have a photo-shopped pic of me as your avatar? I have more if you'd like, just ask.

Nice weapon. It's throttle can scare the shit out of many even compared with newer model bikes.
Steering damper is more essential on that bike than setting up the suspension. It has a short wheelbase and the steering can wobble at almost every hard accelerating attempt.

Great bike. My buddy bought one of these when I had my 05 Repsol. I got to ride it and it was a beast

Firearms are like parachutes, if you ever really need one and don't have it, you'll never need it again.
