Just wanted to say wassup to the forum members here. I am a noob to the zx10r but not new to motorcycles or sportbikes. I have 20 years riding experience and have held jobs in the MC industry in the past. I just bought my gen1 around 2 months ago and couldn't be happier with it. This is the fourth black Kawasaki I have owned and I bleed green. My first Kawi was a 1978 KZ650CSR, second was a 2003 636, third was a Vulcan 1600 and now the ZX10r.
