Figured I'd introduce myself since I hadn't when I first arrived. In my defense I came here for a zx6r part, so I didn't feel right doing so, ha.

My name is Steven, just about 27 years old. Originally from southeast PA, recently moved to the eastern panhandle of WV, about an hour west of Summit Point. Married with two daughters.

Started riding in 2009 with a 2003 zx6rr and have had mostly Kawasaki's since then despite a few strays.

Currently own a gen 4 zx10r that I purchased last March. Pretty awesome bike from the little time I've spent with it since we moved. It is my second zx10r, first one being a gen 1 that I built after years of others abuse. Spent a lot of time lurking here to help me with that bike so I thank you.

I left my bike in PA with my parents till I can find a good place for it down here, but if anyone is local to this area for when I do get it here, let me know! I can probably count on two hands the amount of sport bikes I've seen in my area since June, so I can't rely on running into anybody.

Well enough of that. I guess if you've read this much you've earned some basic pictures.

My last two that I sold to fund the gen 4



The day I got the gen 4



And the family, haha

Welcome to the party!

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

Not only have I noticed the vast amount of knowledge around here, but it seems it's accompanied with respect which is a rare quality in a forum. You have a beautiful bike by the way.

Thank you swopesy!we all are different in many ways!but a common theme unites us and when we all agree that we have a luv for 2 wheels it's hard to argue about that!Im not perfect and prolly have put my foot in my mouth a few times but if you put your hand up and cop it on the chin time seems to help a rift!honestly there's enough evil fkd up shit going on around us we should be able to relax "in our comfort zone"on this forum.

Very well put Peter! That's a good way to look at it with the comfort zone. It's a shame many people today have strayed from that simple concept.-Steven
