Little guy with big bike

Hey guys my name's Andy I've been lurking around the site for about a month and I finally picked up my 04 ZX-10R with 8000 miles. It's in immaculate condition and I got it off Jameszx10r and this bike is amazing! I'm only 20 years old and weigh 120lbs so this thing moves! The last bike I had was an old Yamaha FZR600 so it's a big jump but I am very very careful with my stuff.

Here's a pic from my iPhone right after I picked it up on my way home.

Great buy, Mister! At twice the HP of the Fizzer, don't get silly... discipline and maturity will make the ownership experience last much longer...

But for goshsakes... get some full-gauntlet gloves, young man! (And all the other proper gear that goes along with it.. !)

I was wearing my helmet when I took the pic. It's law here but even if it wasn't I'd still wear one. I gave away my jacket with my last bike and I'm getting all new jacket and gloves dont worry. I just picked up a pear of almost brand new full size Alpine Stars SMX boots off a guy at work for $120. Went to the bike shop today to look at new jackets and gloves but didn't like any of the styles there.

Not bustin your chops bro but youve probably seen some of the riders down threads lately. This forum here is a family to a lot of us and family watches out for one another. Love to see new faces around here and this is a great place to learn about your bike. Glad to hear you gear up man and welcome once again. And I still love your bike

Yeah when I went to go get it I couldn't find a speck of dirt on it. It was just kept in mint condition. And I just ordered my armored jacket and gloves! w00t. Next will be 2 chatterboxes but they are so damn expensive!
