Hi all,
I'm a returning rider after 6yrs, used to ride a ER6n 2012.
Got my N1000 SE 2021 a month ago, too bad after a week we're in lockdown again. Only 150kms on it, it'll be a looooong break-in

Welcome inside here, Mate. It's cold outside Down Under.
Yes it's new alright, those tyres have the colour stripes still glistening loudly !
Same colour as my now ex 21 N1KSXSE.

Hey there! Welcome to the group! I also returned to riding after several years hiatus. First bike was a 2013 Hayabusa. What a beast. Took a 6 year break then hopped on a Ninja 400 for the LA commute, then upgraded to the N1000SX.

How serious is your lockdown?? You can't ride?

Thanks, I'm getting back the hang of it, was riding on Rain mode for a while.

yeah we're on "stay at home" orders, can only go out for essentials (food, exercise, work..). I do quick rides but don't go farther than 10km :( don't wanna risk getting fined.

Welcome!!

Also, why is it that the US gets all the boring color options? Grrr. If that had been available when I got mine I'd have jumped all over it.

Double snap.
Hey lone_rider, congratulations to you and Manichga - great choice of bike and colour.
Hope you enjoy your new rides when you get out of lockdown restrictions (you blokes in Vic?).
My riding is restricted because of the weather - it's zero and going down to minus 5 tonight - winter here is not very enjoyable.
But it's a great bike and worth the wait!!
Cheers

For sure. I like the black, but I'm already thinking about getting it painted. Most likely will go with Mazda's Soul Red Metallic (paint code 41v). I don't really care for green. At best, it's my 5th favorite color, but if they'd had that paint scheme in stock I'd be keeping it!

Reminds me of the 2016 ZX6R and ZX10R KRT colors, which I am a big fan of.

I see the drink, I've learned that what little inhibition to going WOT disappears completely after having a drink or two :LOL:
