  1. Hi just thought i'd introduce myself im a new rider (actually i havent even ridden on the road yet, read to find out why).

    Im a mechanic (on cars), 26 years old, From Nowra (NSW) and have just got my first bike.

    I managed to pick up this ZXR250 Ninja (Series A) very cheap.
    <Cant post pics until ive had 5 posts :( >

    I love the bike, so i went and got my L's. And now im in the process of getting the bike ready to ride (It is VERY hard to start when cold, even with a new battery, you have to clutch start it).

    I'll be posting some questions in the technical section, but thought i'd introdue myself here first,

    so hi :)
