New in the forum
« on: February 27, 2014, 08:13:59 pm »
Hello everybody i been here for a little while and id like to introduce myself my names is leonardo im from cuba came here when i was 17 lived in miami for a couples of year fall in love with a country girl and end up here in Tennessee! I been riding a little over three months or so went to the riders edge academy at the smoky mountain Harley Davidson and graduate form there and been riding every time temperature is a little over 50.
As a kid always dream about sport bikes always wanted to be on the track or to ride a bike so i got this great opportunity to get a bike and boy i dont even want to stop riding i bought my 2009 Kawasaki ninja 250r with 7k miles for 850$ cuz it was savage title and was laid but i didnt care much for that anyways it has done its job i have learned to ride and ready to move up to next step :)
Now i get this chance to buy me a gixxer 1000 i know its a big step but i can see me getting there one day so why not just get there right now! I'm very responsible and i think it should be ok!
I live around 40 mins to the north of ktown  and I'll be more than happy to join some of u for rides or bikes shows or events! I'd like to learn all about it!

Welcome -- there is a topic for New Members (by the way) vs starting a new topic.  Curt, maybe want to move this post ???

At least you gave enough info to put you on Master List - TOPIC   Post Names - Real Names and I will do that.  

Itolokito is Leonardo from N. Knoxville, TN

Welcome..

3 months on a 250 and you think your ready for a 1000.  That's a big jump.  Im not gonna tell you not too especially if its a killer deal but I will say "Many well experienced riders would recommend more time playing with the 250"  Its more fun to ride a slow bike fast than a fast bike slow.

First off, welcome.

2nd, if u decide to sell the 250, let me know, I miss my pregen.

3rd, if its something you want, at a good price, we wont be able to talk you out of it. So if you want it, get it. Just be careful with your right wrist. You can't flog the bike like u can the 250, until you get use to it.

Keep us update on what ya do, and if you do get it, post some pics.

Welcome to the club! 

Then again, I'm in an odd club. I'd rather have a new ninja 300 than the Gixxer 1000.  I'm odd that way. Then again, I had more fun playing on an ex's '12 Ninja 250 than I do on my Ducati 848 Corse! lol

Whichever way you go, just remember to respect the bike, respect the road, have some fun and grow with them. :)
