  1. Rode my fzr250 for the first time today..... OMG How fun is it :D . I was going at about 40km and it felt like I was going 100km. Can't wait to ride again.

  2. Welcome to a whole new world...... :) :) :) :)
  3. OK, this one's hooked....

  4. adnan...lift your eyes a bit higher, away from the tacho, speedo and front wheel. Look 10-20 metres ahead. You will find it makes a world of difference and you will find you have a lot more time to react.

    That first ride outside the instructors parking lot is pretty special and I think most people can remember it..
  5. Hmmmm, a production line.... I like that.........
  6. yeah and it normally lasts alot longer then your first....... errr.... you know what i mean :LOL: :wink: :LOL:
  7. I do look up all the time...I just looked down for half a second to see how fast I am going
  8. Hehe, its a great feeling isn't it. Take care and enjoy, it gets better :)
  9. Good to hear adnan12 . After many many years riding you will still be smiling . I do :D :D
  10. Old FZR's get sticky speedo's, then they read low. You probably were doing 100Kmh.

  11. Congratulations :applause: , I remember that feeling :D travelling home at 50km/h because i felt like i was going waaay to fast :LOL: .

    Might see you at the next learners ride :)
