2007 ZX10R Special Edi in SoCal.
So after being sick of buying parts to keep my 97 ZX7R on the road I decided to get the finds together and buy a newer bike. I wanted a liter bike that was newer, reliable, and comfortable to me, and could wheelie easy (ZX7R had a planted front end which won't come up). I had been scared off of newer bikes after trying an R1 last year that felt crazy tall (I'm 5'6" and was tiptoing). But this time I tried an 06 R1 and it felt perfect, but the dealer fees scared me off. So I went to a cheaper bike shop and mostly just does repairs but happens to have like 20 bikes for sale, and I saw this thing which I had seen in the ad. It was beautiful. Exactly want I wanted, and it looked clean and simple but not boring and stock. I took it for a ride, came back and bought it. It had a couple of lil issues but I talked down the price and was good. It's got just under 11k miles on it, and shorty exhaust which is crazy loud, and it doesn't have the ridiculous SE flames on it (pics coming soon).
