  1. Hi guys,
    Just bought my first bike and will be looking on here for some tips.
    Have generally played with cars until now, so this will be a new experience.
    I have purchased a 04 Z750, and am already on the lookout for some minor mods, such as tail tidy, bar end mirrors and belly pan, so if anybody can recommend a site or two, that would be appreciated.

  2. Welcome. What license do you have and how long have you been riding for?
  3. If he has a 750 he must have a full licence, no ?

    Although first bike ? Track bike ?

  4. You'd think he should but "first bike"makes it questionable which is why I asked.

  5. Sorry, should have been more clear.
    Have had my full licence for over 5 years, but this is the first my first bike that I will actually own, and the first bike in the same period that has a clutch (have ridden scooters from time to time, including a month in thailand where we used them as every day transport)

  6. Weather was finally half decent to take the bike out for my first ride in years.
    I think I might stick to a few quiet rides around my back streets for a few sessions until I get used to riding again, as I was quite dusty.
    Bike felt fantastic though, apart from rubbish after market mirrors and poor wind protection.
