I'm on a green 2002 636 with a few mods here and there. Have you guys been up 2 Mt Glorious b4? Heard its a decent twisty ride. Been up 2 Mt Tambourine a couple of times but the roads are pretty shit. Any other favourite destinations??

Hi wolf. Well ive had my open licence for about 2 years now and in that time ive had 3 bikes. (the zx6r will be my 4th) but this time im keeping it because i wont have to owe money on it (The values of saving money)... thank god.
Ive had a 92 zx2r (Fun), 2000 aprilia rs250 (Expensive), and a 01 R6 (Quick and expensive). ive sold those previous bikes because:
A: 250's are to small for me.
B: my $12 000 dollar R6 somehow turned into a $20 000 after financing it. (Never finance again !!!! )
At least now i'll own my zx6r when it i pick it up next week.
With regards to Mt glorious. Ive been up there about 5 times now but the last time i went was when i had my r6, about 4 months ago. so yes its been a while. Getting back on the bike is no probs, it actually felt good again ridin 2 wheels instaed of 4. I have no probs going for a spin up to the top, ill probably be a slow poke as per usual
I'll own a 1998 Deep blue, black, grey zx6r. Apparently the colour scheme is quite rare. Oh well at least you cant miss me then hehehe
i myself have a 1998 zx6r, ive had it for about 7 months now.
it too is in the black/purple/grey color scheme, so it looks like we will have the same color scheme Raven.
I also have polished rims, and a Gianelli pipe on it, which is apparently an expensive one as a motorcycle muffler store told me when i got my muffler bracket replaced yesterday, damned thing broke on me.
i owned a cbr 250 for 12 months before getting the zx6.
still learning on the bigger bike, so dont expect anything too fast from me.
Ive been up to the top of Mt Glorious a couple of times, and gone up Mt Nebo a few times.
Ive also been up Mt Tambourine many a times, and also up Springbrook, and O'Reillys which is out the back of the gold coast.
