Sayin' hello!

Hi all,

Brand new to the forum and just a little about me:

This is my 3rd bike, a '03 919. First bike was an '89 Suzuki GS550, second was a 2000 Kawasaki ZR7S. Back when I bought the ZR in 2006 I really wanted a 919 and have finally got it! I love riding but know little to nothing about the mechanical aspect of it so I will inevitably be the guy that asks a few really dumb questions, so consider this fair warning! I've only had it for a week but here's some pics...

Thanks! I actually had the ZR7. The 919 is definitely torquier with a slightly straighter up riding position but I have some new bars on the way to help fix that.

Otherwise, it's been a little over 5 years since the zr so I'm probably forgetting a lot of the differences!
