New ZX10R Owner

Hey,

Introductory post, picked up my 2016 ZX-10R KRT ABS this past Saturday, LOVE IT. Coming from my first bike, a 2003 Honda CBR600RR I picked up around 2008. Getting back into street riding after running the RR basically as a track only bike for the last 4 years. Looking forward to learning a lot and hopefully providing some useful input in return!

Jon

Welcome to the party!

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

Training (And street experience) is vital... Is there a MSF course there?

Seems like a lot of pro track racer's consider the street as too dangerous to ride.

I have no issue with the street... But ... I have 60 years of street, and Gobs of dirt/mud, mountain trail riding,
and Desert racing, to shape my brain.... So, that has been a major key, for me...

Took the MSF back in 08 before getting the Honda and again 2 years ago with my wife when she got her Ninja 300. I guess I haven't ridden on the street much more due to the condition of my "track bike"... it was a mess! And the 10R is FAR more comfortable!
