hello kawi forum members. i recently purchased an 08 zx10r and am excited to ride it daily and maybe take it to the track one of these days. i have been riding for over a year now. i started, against all of my friends wishes, on a used 2010 ninja 250r. yea i got teased by my friends because im 6'3" and the 250 looked like a pocket bike when i was on it but real riders dont care. i rode the 250 everyday and eventually added 4500mi to the odometer before i sold it. i never dropped the 250 and learned very valuable lessons and techniques on it like hitting the rear brakes too hard on an 100mph tank slapper glad i wasnt on anything but a 250 for that one! i still have tons to learn and thats why im here.
