Hi all! Name's Dave, I've been stalking your forum for a few months now trying to decide if this was the bike for me, and finally pulled the trigger on a super low mileage all black 2011 N1K two weeks ago. I've put almost two thousand miles on it since then and couldn't be happier.

I've been riding for the better part of a decade, but I'm coming from the cruiser world (sold my Harley Softail to get this, and I only miss it when I'm not on the Ninja) and while I've ridden super sports and liter bikes before, this is the first one I've ever owned or done any serious riding on. It's a whole new world and I'm trying my hardest to resist the temptation to go too ham learning the ins and outs of sport bike riding.

I'm probably gonna bombard you guys with noob questions so forgive me in advance, but I'll try my hardest to contribute what little I can whenever I'm able.

Thanks in advance for letting me learn from you guys!

Welcome beltway

You're in good company and not a slave to conformity. I went from a cruiser to the N1K, with a brief stop on a Ninja 300.

Seasoned riders who mount sport bikes are not willing to go gently into that good night, they rage against the dying of the light.
welcome to the forum! Let me know if you want to ride some of the West Virginia eastern panhandle roads sometime.
Thanks for the warm welcome, guys!
