I was inspired by the ninja ex500 thread to start another first bike thread.
A couple weeks ago I picked up my first street bike, of a user on this site: 1988 Yamaha FZR250. A bit smaller bike, but a ton of power for a 250cc. Inline 4 cyl, a ton of fun, and runs/looks extremely mint.
I picked up some new gear aswell, a Joe Rocket Ballistic jacket, some Icon leather gloves, and a HJC AC-12 Carbon helmet. I've racked up an astonishing 300km so far and going strong.
