Hello folks, Haven't posted here for awhile..but I just got a new (to me) bike today so I am of course all crazy-excited even though its dead of winter here (Kelowna).

I'm just looking for some feedback from those newer riders (not brand newbies) who ride larger cc bikes. I am a relatively experienced rider, I am very careful and not a stunter at all. I have had my license for 3 years or so...I started with school, then a 750 FZR (86, older and heavy) but I felt it was a bit much for me so early on so I spent alot of time on a 400 Suzuki. I sold that bike last summer and and spent the rest of the summer on a 93 ex500. Nice bike, loved it. Did I say I loved it? hehe

But...time comes I got a killer deal on a 93 zx750 Ninja. Next to nothing from a bud who was moving and had ruined a lower fairing. Had it safetied and all its in FAB shape and very well maintaned with good kms...so I am really excited to ride it.:rockon :rockon

Just wondering if any of y'all have this bike, or how you think it is. Again I am a very careful rider, and I will def be jetting around the roads close to home for the first few weeks, parking lot re-training myself for a larger bike and all. And of course keeping off the f brake in turns ...and staying out of the higher half of the rpms for now. I ride mainly alone (sadly, my hubby is a rider but he is very timid and prefers to ride alone, and I like riding much more for me its a treat - for him a chore, lol).

Any tips or pointers would be great:)

Thanks :flashy

I'm not a newb rider (26 years) but I can tell you that you have great roads out there so take your new baby out there and ride the shit out of it.......especially from Kelowna to Rock Creek hell do that road a couple times for me .....lol seriuosly take ur time, ride at your pace, ride your bike, the best thing to do is put hours under your belt....kinda like a pilot.

Agreed great roads out here and they fix em potholes very early in the year unlike on the coast where they are part of the permanent landscape:)

Haven't yet done Rock Creel though I hear about it alot, I do ride to Vernon and back and up to Beaverdell quite a bit, I love highway riding:)

Thanks for taking the time to post:)

I started on a zx7-r and its such a nice ride, you would expect a bike with 750cc to be more aggresive but because its bottom heavy it makes it easy to ride and very stable at low speeds. Enjoy the ride you will love it.
