Hello from NC

Hey everyone, Desh from NC here.

Just put down a deposit on a new 2018 Ninja 1000 ABS. Excited about the purchase. Picked the black color.

Past Rides: 2006 ZX-6R (Sweet ride)

Street Experience: 25+ years
Track: Zero (maybe some day!)

Safe rider, No accidents! Committed to keeping it that way!

(Posting a couple of questions in the general forum)
