Getting back into the game after 2 long years without a steed. Have been riding for 10 years, first 8 years I had no car so rode year round.
A little about me: My past bikes were a 2000 ZX9R (Green), and 2009 250R (Green) which I had at the same time, ZX9R for fun, 250R for commuting. I unfortunately high-sided the ZX9R, and sold it to a friend to fix up because I was joining the Air Force soon.
After graduating Basic training and tech school, I sold my 250R for an R6 and brought it with me to my first station in Italy, where I lived for 2 years and enjoyed riding through many of the beautiful countrysides of Europe.
I then moved to Japan but was forced to sell my R6 beforehand due to the very restrictive and expensive import policies they have on foreign vehicles.
After 2 years rideless here in Japan, I have finally saved enough to buy the bike I dreamed of since I first saw a picture of it, the Gen 4 ZX10R (Green of course). I've only had it for about a month and a half, but am making steady progress on upgrades, and am loving being finally able to take advantage of the riding here.
Looking forward to chatting with you all, and probably bugging you on occasion.
