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 !

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

i drove mine for the first time on Sunday too, put 115miles under 6,000 rpm, can't wait to get the break done so i can open her up. It just starts to come alive at 4500 rpm and then you have to shift it sucks all that engine and can't use it. i attached some pictures, I hope i did it right, enjoy

Very nice! Looks like everyone is enjoying the new toys!

oh it looks like you might want to adjust your chain, when they are new they seem to stretch quite a bit in the first 100 miles or so.

Steve, you are a bloody marvel. Red is awesome (not that the other colours are any less so).
Enjoy it and have fun.
Take time to get to know it and feel it out properly or you will end up doing what I did and now I won't have mine for the next 6 - 8 weeks.
