Another Houston Newby, same story different bike

Hey guys,

I just scored an awesome deal on an 06 ZX10R as well.

My best friend bought it brand new in 06 with 1 mile on it. He rode it a little and got scared of it. It has sat inside his house since.

I picked it up from him today super cheap and it only has 352 miles on it. He threw in his Joe Rocket jacket, new helmet, rear stand, kevlar gloves. He has already put the undertail kit on it.

I had a ZX7 back in 2002 but wound up selling out after having kids and the spousal unit being concerned with my overall well being. Me and the wife put some serious miles on that bike. I don't know who was more sad to see it go, me or her.

Now the kids are getting older and she went ahead and dropped the bomb the other night and gave me the go ahead to start lookin.

I picked up my best friends bike for 5G's.

We are looking for other couples to ride with when the weather is nice and we have a jailer for the youngins.

I am on the east side, Deer Park.

Lime green, I need to clean it up it's dirty from being in the house. For some reason he didn't think this machine of beauty needed to be dusted at all, ever! I'll get some pics up in the next day or so, can I post pictures direct or do I need to go through photobucket?

This bike had sat in his gameroom inside his house for the last 4 years, on the rear stand in the corner.

I am so stoked, I missed riding especially back in the day when CMRA was racing around Henderson at Oakhill raceway. Man I miss those days.

Looks good, i think SOMEONE might have some akras in the classifieds, seeing as how you saved a bunch of cash on the purchase.
