My First REAL bike.

Discussion in 'Showcase' at netrider.net.au started by Quivorir, Jul 8, 2012.

  1. Picked up my new pride and joy Yesterday. Just over under 2 months before I can ride her legally, but man it feels good. Cannot wait to see what she can do!

    Edit: Should say its the 2012 Fireblade for those that don't know :p

  5. Without thrashing it, you can feel that it just has the power to use. Being in 6th gear in and just wants to keep going. Not taking it above 5k revs at the moment though

  8. Congrats! I got my new blade end of last year and had to wait 5 months to ride it. Be very careful when you start off on it, I learned very quickly (and almost harshly) that one cannot simply twist throttle to 100% coming out of a corner :p

  10. The white just looks awesome in person, too hard to pass up. In general most white bikes look awesome I find.

  11. It is a good looking bike, but I'm a little confused, what have you been riding up to now? and why is it not "real"?

  12. Sounds like you have been naughty, not worth the risks mate, can void a number of different things (insurance) & cost you time off the road, let her sit there & look pretty till you ready..

  13. Looks good mate, be gentle with it and respect that the bike is, at least for now, much more capable than you are.

    Enjoy, and keep it shiny side up.

  14. I have been naughty, but only once (not counting riding from the Dealership). Its just too nice to have sit in my Garage! It was only a quick squirt around the estate. I should be able to contain myself for 2 months though.
