Hello there guys ! I've been lurking around forums for almost two years now. It all started when i had my first ride on a mates R6, boyy that was interesting. Just something about it got me interested in it. What really got me, was when my mate got me on the bike and took me around. Got hooked since then. Spent those years convincing my dad that motorcycling is indeed safe, and you can all see how that took years. Haha, so i've finally convinced him, sort of, and got my probationary license in Feb! And so, what i wanted at the very first, was a Trumpy, a Daytona 675. Oh that is one fine sexy looking chick. Had a sit on it at the dealers last year and when i heard that exhaust, i was so sure that it was going to be my first bike. Was gonna ignore all the advices against a 675 as a first bike, and finally came to my senses when i test rode a Ninja 250r ! It just felt, intimidating with the lack of experience even on the ninja, imagine how that would feel on a 675. Had a first drop a day after i got the ninja, bent gear shift lever. Rode home from the gold coast in 3rd gear up. Lol, the amount of stalling was just enough to work up a sweat and a whole of embarassment. Thanks for the help guys, helping me out figuring out the problem a couple days ago. This is the post i promised ! (oh the ninja escaped, without scratches ) And so i present to you, the fastest of all ninjas, the red ninja ! Gears - Shoei x1000, Shift boots & gloves, RST Rift jacket, and a pair of dragging jeans that could get pretty warm.
