Welcome to the nut house.

Look forward to more pictures of the bike and your country side.
Videos are even better.

I am extremely happy with my Ninjeta. Got a new SC-Project with a servobuddy and it works great. I kept the prechamber and the bike is just a little smoother at low rpm, much much better than what I thought it would be. I am still adjusting myself to the bike, with only 2000 miles on it, but i don't commute, only twisties. Need some more time to tame this beast. I believe I will get it to the track in June, so I can get a little more confidence. Ride safe!

Well, for those feeling curious about what kind of roads we have here, I finally got some footage of El Montseny, this is, what we like to call "The Mountain". The video shows the ascent from St.Esteve de Palautordera to Collformic Pass, a very popular road that leads to the town of Seva, an iconic place for motorcycle enthusiasts here. Please forgive my riding skills for the obvious reasons, but we know the road well and I am getting to know my Ninjeta (contrary to what it seems, there is plenty of visibility in the first U turn). I welcome all criticism as long as it is constructive, of course. I am already aware of this bad throttle chopping bad habit among other things (I just can't help it happen, sometimes), but I believe it will soon disappear as it did too on my other bike. Just need time, patience and riding, riding and more riding. The guy on the Sussie GSXR1000 is a friend.





Well here is the video of the full ascent, almost raw edit:


View of the Pyrenees at the distance from Collformic:


The Battlax S20R did a good job, not a single noticeable slip (well, thanks to traction control too):


Good job, Ninjeta!


Remember, if you ever come to Barcelona and rent a bike, just drop a call!!

More videos coming soon. Meanwhile, ride safe!

This is another of our favourite roads. We call it "the road".
I am very happy that I am starting to feel truly comfortable with the zx6r body position, so I don't get tired, cramps or wrist pain anymore (this is my first sportsbike). I believe I still need to lean forward more than I do, however now I can focus on riding & learning, and not on how to avoid discomfort / pain. I'm lovin' it! Cheers!
