Hello everyone. I just got a 97 YZF1000R and I am new to riding sport bikes. I love it so far. In the last few weeks I have rode about 500 miles. The bike is bigger than what I wanted but after looking for several months it was the only bike I could find in my price range. Other that a 250 ninja which was too small for me. The only thing I dont like is it is a little hard to find parts for. But I can live with that.
