Talking Hello Ladies!

Hello Ladies,

first I want to say that I think this forum is great! I'm a newbie and I really value a women's perspective on motorcycling. I need all the advice/suggestions/information I can get from you all.
I'm picking up my first sports bike Tuesday. It's a 2001 Kawasaki ZX7R Blk/Yell. I can't wait to bring her home!
I hope to chat with some of you ladies soon. If anyone lives in Georgia please shoot me an e mail.

Thx!

Post So...How is it??

Addicted to riding yet?

I rode my baby Ninja into work the other day, and one of the guys tried to buy it off me. Still trying as a matter of fact, and I might just let him...

There's a yellow 2000 F4 out there that's just screamin' my name!!

Later--

Jenny

Talking Hi Jenny

Jenny,

girl you have no idea how much I'm feening for my bike. I'm currently out of town on business (1 1/2 hours away from home). I look forward to Fridays! LOL! I love the bike. It may be alittle heavy but I'm getting use to her. If I (5'6 and 135 lbs) can start on a ZX7R anyone can.
So you're going to buy F4 eh? I'm happy for you!!! I hope you enjoy your new bike! Good luck and thanks for the reply!

Brat

Katie--

I was thinking about upgrading the EX500 to an SV650s, then started to really think about it. It would take a lot of $$ to get that 650 up to snuff--it needs suspension front and back, carb work, new bodywork, etc. etc. to get it right. AND it still wouldn't be as good a bike as an F4, just cause all the good stuff goes to the 600 class w/all the manufacturers...I think the F4 looks better, anyways

I asked Stacia (Luv2RideFast) about hers, and that kinda sealed it for me. I just hope the one I got my eye on is still around in a few weeks when I get the $$ scraped together!

How long have you been riding? Done any mods to it besides lowering?


Brat--hope your travelling ends soon so you get to spend more time wit your bike

Jenny ~ I haven't been consistently riding for long, only about 3 months (I'm a newbie!). I took the MSA course and got my license in '96. I started with an '02 Buell Blast this March-ish (?), and that bike pissed me off pretty quick. Who the heck thought of an air-cooled beginners bike??? The F4 is so much easier to ride!!!

No mods, just the lowering... I love that bike!
