my first litrebike

Hey all, just picked up my first 1000 a few weeks ago, got an '04 ZX10r with a little damage, but the price was right so I couldn't pass it up.

Upgraded from a CBR 600 to this and seems to be quite the jump in power.

yeah its quite the beast everyone says it is. waiting for the speedometer, the last piece to make it completely rideable.

previous owner lowsided, put all new plastics on and I picked it up for 3,200 with 8500 miles. Put a new ram air and upper fairing stay on it, and like new, besides a dented tank. Should be a fun summer with the 10r.
