I Ride: 2010 ZX-6R
G'day from Auckland, New Zealand

Hello, I've just joined this awesome forum/site today and hoping to learn more about riding and especially ZX-6R's.

I just bought me a secondhand 2010 ZX-6R and unfortunately within 24 hours the rectifier regulator stuffed up and needs replacing. Just waiting for a new part to arrive from Japan and should hopefully be back out on the roads asap.

Here's me and my bike. I named her Nikara.

She came with the following goodies:
Ohlins TTX GP rear shock
Yoshimura RS-4 full exhaust system
Power commander V with auto tune kit

Sweet as bro

Hope you enjoyed your time in our country and got to ride the roads a bit.

The Ohlins is awesome but, I haven't had a good chance to ride her yet. Come on rectifier! Get to NZ already

Glad to have you aboard. Keep us informed with your bike.

I have a friend living in Aukland, she moved there for Grad school, then met a guy. She doesn't ride but tells me about the great roads with fabulous scenery.

Cheers for the welcome ZedExMuse.

I have never ridden on any other roads except in NZ but, can definitely vouch for the beautiful scenery. If your friend ever wants to start riding she could get in contact with me. There's a bunch of us who ride together regularly. We're made up of all different age groups and riding experiences. Everyone is welcome.

Will definitely update this post when my bike is back on the road again.

One of the most awesome places I've ever had a chance to visit. Though I wasn't able to ride while there. I was touring in a band at the time and we played "Metal Day Out" on June 6th 2006 at Supertop at Ericsson Stadium.

No bikes unfortunately. But lots of driving! I'd love to go back and ride some of the places we went!

Oh yes. I'm just 2 minutes drive from that stadium.

We love getting overseas bands playing here. So many concerts going this time of year since it's our summer. I love it.

Hope you come back to NZ one day. Lots of windy scenic roads to ride.

It's on my to-do list! I've got friends in Hamilton so I'll be around whenever that happens. lol. Do you know the band Devilskin? That's my friends band. Apparently they're a pretty big deal over there!

I just Google'd Devilskin as I have not heard of them before. They're a pretty talented crew alright

My step-bro is in a band that like to play similar music to Devilskin but, haven't quite made it yet. Check him out here on YouTube if you're interested https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gBvPzT4EJHs

Ironically I just saw Devilskin after New Years. They're OK, but Alestorm blew them off the stage...

Nice to have another girl in the mix. I hope you have thick skin. It can get a little strange at times in here. I like your bike. Especially the rear shock. I simple aftermarket fork valve kit would make that thing handle like a dream.
