OK so i got my Learners permit about 2-3 months ago... i am also the proud owner of a zzr 250 (96)... and i have to say... I'M ADDICTED TO RIDING! I use it now for EVERYTHING! even if it means multiple trips to woolies (safeway for you victorians) anyways.. just want to to share the love etc... i know now why riding is more meaningful than driving.
