So next weekend I'm flying down to oregon to get a 2005 ZX-10R that has been in a high side. the upper plastics, windshield, pegs and left controls are pretty ratched up. The mechanics of the bike are still fine, it runs straight and has a clean title. so I'm planning on bringing it back to vancouver bc and fixing it up and doing a custom paint job on it. I'll be looking for parts and installing some upgrades to it as well such as a GPR damper and champ sliders so i may need a bit of guidance in some areas, but i'm really looking forward to this bike and having a fun summer with it.
This will be my first sport bike that i have personally owned but I've had my time on others. I learned on my brother in law's 99 600 ninja and have had access to my dad's blackbird but i'm expecting this bike to be a totally different animal than those bikes even.
I currently have a 1982 suzuki 1100GS that i'm just about done fixing up to my liking, a 1981 750GS that i haven't even started fixing, and i just sold my 99 1100 shadow (thats how i'm affording this 10R).
well thats about all i can think of for my introduction. I look forward to talking with everybody here about these bikes.

i'm getting it for $4000, which i think is a good price, and it has like 3000 miles on it as well
