Anything in mind? Gear can get pretty pricey.

That was my first bike ('89 FZR600 red/white/blue) back in '97.

I only buy japanese-made japanese cars.

I found a HJC helemt for $150 and a really nice Jacket for $200. Still looking around, though. Not sure what's good and what's not.

Congrats.

A friend of mine just bought the exact same bike. He is still breaking it in. We should go ride some time. I got an 09 CBR600RR Phoenix edition.

Hope you are an organ donor - keep you card handy around your neck!!!

More seriously be careful, I got sacked a few years back on my Hayabusa and haven't been riding since then...watch out for old people and young teenage drivers.

What's up with ur M3? When is it coming ???

Cheers, Don-

Yar, wheres the M? The bike better be color matched.

Some say he roams around the woods at night foraging for wolves.

HJC is a decent helmet, if that. I had one when I first started riding (very noisy). You can find better for about the same price, maybe a little more/less if you look hard enough. If you can, try on gear at a local shop to see how it fits and you can easily find better deals online. My Scorpion EXO-700 (comfortable and pretty quiet) saved my life last year in an accident and I have since bought another one along with an AGV K3 (very light and not too noisy). I still ride and live in Laurel, if you want to meet up to ride or whatever, don't hesitate to hit me up.

I bought a HJC helemt for the time being. It is VERY noisy, but it gets the job done.

Ran into complications, so I decided to wait till the end of my lease. Less then 180 days remaining. And yes, it is color matched. :D

It is an 09 Brand New. It had 4 miles when I picked it up. I got a good deal on it. It was $9,000
