New ZX10R owner
Good morning everyone. I'm Igor and I just bought a new 2014 ZX10R after my friends, family, and random strangers told me, "did you know motorcycles are dangerous?" and "I hope your life insurance is maxed out because liter bikes are a death sentence."
Yes, I knew those things already, thanks :) haha, just kidding folks.
Anyway, some background: I have been street and track riding a ZX6R for over two years and decided to make my 6 a dedicated track bike after a particularly nasty track high side broke too many parts to ever restore to street in a cost effective manner. I had wanted a 10 pretty much as long as I've know about the existence of motorcycles and I was finally able to pull the trigger on buying one.
Here are my initial thoughts after 24 hours of ownership: Holy powerband Batman!!! Like, there is power everywhere. She just takes off like a rocket (except from red lights, which I understand now thanks to a nice write up for new owners I found here). I honestly did not expect such an enormous power difference. I knew it would be more, because 998 > 599, but the power difference is so high that you'd think I was riding a toy bike before, and the 6 isn't exactly slow.
So anyway, I am looking forward to exploring everything this bike has to offer and learning more about it on this site.
Oh yeah, almost forgot, pics or it didn't happen :)
