New ZX-10R Owner from South Central PA

Hello! I am the proud owner of a new, 2006 ZX-10R that is Pearl Solar Yellow in color. Yeah, that's right, a new, 2006. I bought it from Cycle World of Cherry Hill, NJ on 6/29. They got it from another local dealer that went out of business and were offering it for a great price after the $2,500 rebate. Originally, I was going to get a 2008 ZX-6R, but I decided to get the ZX-10R for $700 more. What "sealed the deal" on getting the ZX-10R was when a friend of a friend let me ride his R1 a few days prior to make sure I was comfortable riding a liter-bike...I loved it. My prior riding experience has been 2-years on a 2005 Ninja 250R (put 6,100-miles on it) and the last 14-months on a 2007 Ninja 650R (put 1,500-miles on it). Since Kawasaki was offering awesome rebates on 2009 and prior year bikes, I felt it was a good time to take the next step. I logged over 120-miles on the ride home -- going through downtown Philly in order to break-in the engine before getting on the interstate. My wrists and neck are just a little bit sore, but I'll get use to that. Unfortunately, I don't get to ride much, but I look forward to riding the ZX-10R every chance I get. Take care, and ride safely!

Thanks, gentlemen! Here are some quick pics using my iPhone...

I took these pictures with my iPhone at 8:50 p.m. -- right after pulling in the driveway from getting it --, so there was low light conditions. I plan on cleaning it up a little more and taking some good pictures with my Olympus digital camera. I'm not sure why the pictures are coming out so large in this post.

Anybody else with an '06/'07 in Pearl Solar Yellow?

Welcome. Yea, you have to resize the pic to a lower resolution. I normally use MS Office Picture Manager. But wow, there's still brand new '06s left??? You must of gotten a real real good deal. LOL. Sweet bike btw, happy modding!

Thanks, ShinobiZXR! Yeah, a 2006 still laying around. They had a blue, 2007 for $300 more. I like the yellow. It is different.

I figured that was the problem with the pics. I will try to re-size the pictures...probably not tonight though.

Mine didn't come with the "ZX-10R" badging on the rear. I don't mind it not being there, but I wonder why. I'm sure it was put on at the factory.

Welcome irish ,, Good group of Guys/gals here. They will help out any way they can and even though it is a ZX10R specific forum , you wont find ass holes bashing other bikes or being brand Blind idiots . We ALL want kawasaki to do better in WSB but no one here is making excuses for them .

BTW ironically I JUST wrote a thread on motorcycles markets and how they change in different aeas ( general forum) Irish what made you drive 100-200 miles to Cherry hill to buy a bike ? IRISH being from Pa and Buying s bike near me, tell me if you think the article is spot on and what your area is like for buying bikes ( not great I guess lol)
IRISH again welcome and feel free to ask anything -Especially aftermarket parts deals these guys have done there homework . Speaking of that If you are going to add any carbon fiber - MDI-carbonfiber , its a european company , not much more than the crappy chinese carbon( if you can call it that 1/2 isnt carbon )in price but great quality AND has the thick U/V coating . On par with the geman Carbon but 1/2-1/4 the price .
