I Ride: Used to be a 07 ZX6R and now is a 2006 Z1000
I started with a lawnmower engine powered bike then moved up to a 250. Then got a 98 cbr 600f3, then a R1 sold it and have had a 05 636 and my now bike the 07. I loved them all.

My 10r got stolen so I found the 6r all beat and decided I'd build it and play around with it for a bit then track it. but I actually am enjoying it a lot more than I thought I would! lol

Lol honestly, the cbr is a nice bike. It's smaller profile makes it really comfortable to ride compared to my 636. I've always been a fan of Kawasaki so you know how the sibling rivalry goes lol. He tries to keep up.

I Ride: 08 kawi green zx6r
first bike was a 93 katana 600. no regrets. respect the machine, and it will respect you. either way you go, its a win, because 250s have great resale value, and if you start on a 600, you wont have to worry about upgrading right away.

mods: two bros m5 slip-on, mjs performance headers, two bros juicebox, k&n air filter, 12k ddm tuning HID kit (low and high), frame sliders, puig tire hugger, relocated back brake reservoir, jt sprockets (stock sizing), rk gold chain, de-badged, speedo drd, green leds inside fairings, sportbikelites integrated brake light, ebay levers (shorties) .....whats next

Nope, first street bike was a 750.
Rode a Suzuki 80 from like 500 BC for a couple years,
stopped riding for a while,
bought an 83 Shadow 750 (Kasumi) and remembered how,
then an 84 Shadow 700 (Lucy),
then 11 Zx6r (Sayomi) because I felt like cornering.

Edit: To be fair, I was on a 250 for MSF / licensing, but that was AFTER I bought and rode the 750 for almost 2 years. >_>
