Hi All

Finally got my Greenie today and all I can say is, what a monster :grin2: It's my first proper 1000cc (previous bike was a R1100S, before which I was bikeless for about 8 years and just before that I rode Greenie's grandfather - 9R, none of which had prepared me for this).

Details
2008, 10900kms, Green, TwoBros Slip-On, Pirelli Angel GT (back and front) and an aftermarket seat (not sure what it is). Not sure about other mods.

Anycase, hopefully I won't need much "tech support" from the forum, these Kawi's seem to be quite reliable :wink2:

Peace,
Viggen

Taxi's are always at fault :wink2:

Well, waiting to hear what the insurance people have to say, then I'll probably start shopping again :grin2:

A few sore/bruised muscles but otherwise OK, thank the Creator 0:)

Nah, originally looked at the Honda "diesel" before I got the ZX10R but they seem to have a few "issues". Would love one of the newer 10R's but the cost (at least this side of the globe) is a tad CRAZY! I'll probably get something of the same vintage (08/09), but seeing as how rare the Gen3 is and how I struggled to get this one, I'll probably look at something a little easier to come by. Saw a lovely Suzi K9 for a good price and they don't seem to have any issues.

Still waiting for insurance to sort me out so I can go for a couple of test rides ;)
