Hey guys, new to these forums. Thought i'd introduce myself. I'm Jay, 26, took the MSF Motorcycle Safety Course a month ago and got my license. Haven't ridden street bikes before so I'm completely new to this. Owned a few mustangs and always was into cars but sold them all and looking to get into bikes now.

Anyway tomorrow my friend is selling me his 2008 Kawi ZZR600 with 2k miles for $3,800 so it'll be my first bike to learn on. Bike is mint, he just bought it and never had time to ride it and now needs to sell it because of $$$ problems. Perhaps not the BEST 1st bike but I'll be taking it easy and hope to collect and share info with the other users here.

Maybe i'll post some pics next weekend if I have the time, although I'm sure you all know what the bike looks like =)

PICS POSTED BELOW

Hey thanks guys. While i've raced all of my mustangs at the track I have no desire to be a speed demon on two wheels ironically. I'm more worried about the other cars on the road than myself to be honest. But so is everyone on a bike I'm sure. I'm in northern NJ and anyone else here knows what kind of retarded drivers there are out there.

Only really looking to drive it on the weekends (probably not now that winter is around the corner though) and looking to learn on it. Definitely will take it quite easy for a while. Dont plan on hitting the highway until I have atleast about 500miles of road practice in.

I'm sure the ZZR600 is a lot more than "no slouch"....the only street bikes i've ever ridden were the like 70s-80s Suzuki GSX 150 or 250s that the MSF rider course had. So a modern 600 will feel like a rocket im sure. But thats ok.

RIDERS INSURANCE quoted me at $900 for the year full coverage. Not that bad of a price I suppose for a new rider. What are some of you guys my age paying for your bikes?

Here are some pics.

I haven't fully read through the owners manual yet. And haven't driven the bike. Still waiting to get it registered and inspected. But its insured now.
Anyway, anyone mind telling me real fast what im looking at in those last 2 pics?

the last pic is on the right side of the bike, looks like the clutch or engine case with a view port?
Other pic (2nd to last) is on the left side, looks like a washer bottle but obviously not.
