2008 ZX10R Greenie

Hi All

Finally got my Greenie today and all I can say is, what a monster It's my first proper 1000cc (previous bike was a R1100S, before which I was bikeless for about 8 years and just before that I rode Greenie's grandfather - 9R, none of which had prepared me for this).

Details
2008, 10900kms, Green, TwoBros Slip-On, Pirelli Angel GT (back and front) and an aftermarket seat (not sure what it is). Not sure about other mods.

Anycase, hopefully I won't need much "tech support" from the forum, these Kawi's seem to be quite reliable

Peace,
Viggen

Taxi's are always at fault

Well, waiting to hear what the insurance people have to say, then I'll probably start shopping again

A few sore/bruised muscles but otherwise OK, thank the Creator

Well damn. That was short lived. Sorry to hear that, but glad you're alright.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

Nah, originally looked at the Honda "diesel" before I got the ZX10R but they seem to have a few "issues". Would love one of the newer 10R's but the cost (at least this side of the globe) is a tad CRAZY! I'll probably get something of the same vintage (08/09), but seeing as how rare the Gen3 is and how I struggled to get this one, I'll probably look at something a little easier to come by. Saw a lovely Suzi K9 for a good price and they don't seem to have any issues.

Still waiting for insurance to sort me out so I can go for a couple of test rides ;)
