Nice! Welcome. You will love the bike... every once in awhile I get "newbikeitus" and I start looking around for a new one, but I can't find anything that does so much and as well as the Ninja 1000.
Same here. Rode Harleys for 25 years and was looking for something new. Watched ALL of his videos and now own a 2013https://www.youtube.com/user/SALTxTHExWOUND Is a big reason I got so excited about the N1K. His vids fired me up!
I agree Tony, but for the price I couldn't refuse! That, and I figured if it bothered me a lot, I could always refinish it (considering my profession, easy)
But.... it's really growing on me.
