Hey there, just picked up a 2003 Ninja ZX6r about a month ago. I've had an 89' 500, a handful of other bikes, an 09' 250R, and some other bikes, before landing on this 636. I love it so far. It is definitely meaner than most of the other bikes I've owned. Yeah, its beat up but runs just dandy. I'm getting used to it. Anyways, I travel back and forth between Boston and Brooklyn often. If anyone is in these areas, feel free to reach out. I'm always down to meetup and ride. I look forward to learning some things here.
