Newbee from Chicagoland

Hi everyone.

My name is Russ. Just couple of weeks ago I bought my first Kawi, it's not a zx10r though, got 07 zx6r. I've been riding since 02 and had 6 or 7 bikes. Had GS500, 02GSXR600, 04CBR1000RR, 06GSXR1000, and now downgraded to a 07zx6r. I like the bike overall, but hate the handling, just not used to not having a steering damper, also rear suspension is way to stiff, and Bridgestones BT015 are just not cup of tea. Looking forward to getting some good usefull info on this forum, and maybe picking up a zx10r one day.

You hate the handling because it doesn't have a damper? That's just....odd.
