G'day people - Trying out this chat room thing for the first time and i am very new to this stuff so here goes ........ Currently riding a 1996 ZZR250 with megacycle pipes (thanks to me mate Dian and the boss Ken at Megacycle) , which makes it sound very ballsie but its all noise and very little action . Recently picked up a 1999 yamaha R1 which is pissing off the old man ( knobby ) at the moment because he cant catch me he he !!!! - but i am loving it all , its more comfortable , balance is great and i feel safer on the r1 than the zzr250 ... size is a big factor i guess .... Met gsxr1000 at Bike mart Tuesday so hi to him and i will meet some of you at pete stevens for a ride to Alexandra . chow4now !!!!
