Hello guy's I thought I would re introduce myself on here again. Been a member for about 5 ish years and use to post on here as a newbie. I am a long time friend of Jerryx4 (Jezza) and was given a motivational kick when he bought his new ride. I had a CBR 125 which was my first bike, I had it for just over a year (12,000 Klms ) but unfortunately my brother took it upon myself to write off my beloved BMX with a chainsaw engine and never payed me a cent, So I sort of drifted away from here as life was getting in the way (as it does with a family) and never had the means to buy another bike at the time (buying a house) Well now I have just bought myself my first decent bike (although the BMX had its good points and taught me a lot) A Gixxer 600. I have had it now for about 3 weeks, racked up 600 Klms in the first two and now I am just waiting for the sun to shine again so I can ride her to and from work again. Someone has already tried to pinch my new ride but thank god they did not succeed (or scratch) my precious girl. I intend to attend some rides in the future so I can get some good tips and meet some new people (and get out in general), I consider my riding to be good, in the way I look out for others, cars and my general bike handling skills, but I lack in the confidence to really push the bike, not in speed but in handeling (I suppose it will come with more experience on the bike) I was going to buy the 750 but he sold it the day before, So I just opted for the 600. Anyway here is a pic of the beast just before pre delivery. Cheers Adrian.
