first ride on 312

well guys i rode my bike for the first tme on sunday and i love it
it is as i discussed earlier very tall (for me as im 5'4") but we set
the ride height at its lowest point and this helped a little - the bike
feels very strong even though i never went over 6500 rpm - it is
very stiffly sprung but will probably soften up a little with some miles
put on it - plus since i rode it i checked all my suspension settings and
it was set up a bit on the stiff side - i softened it up a little but havent
gotten to ride again yet - i took all the bodywork off to clean and put
on a good coat of wax - and to just inspect everything and see how she
is put together - i really like what i see and am happy i purchased it
she is a beauty !

dont be disappointed if it wont actually do 312kph.......only the pearl/black models can do that.
congrats.

A gun is not a weapon. It's a tool, like a butcher's knife, or a harpoon, or an alligator.

lewdog - i think you are mistaken as i think it was
a red/silver they did the 312 kph on - ha ha !! no
really the black is beautiful too, i just am old school
in that if its italian it must be "red" - i had an black
04 ZX10 and i really liked it
