a new...

Hi to All,

I'm from Poland and I've just started my adventure with motorcycles.
I am very fresh rider (since November 2016) I already have bought my first motorbike zx6r 99'.

I like my motorbike very much, although it is not so young and it has some drawbacks
and of course like a ninja it has to be very green

So...nice to join here

Welcome.

With the proper maintenance, time, and money, you may end up with a completely unique motorcycle...... If this is the first bike, I would only do enough to make it safe.

Spend the rest of your money on quality riding gear...... it will outlast the bike.

How's the weather like there right now? Here in Oregon, USA, we're a little further south than you. It's warm but wet. Is it still winter or are you getting into spring?

Lets see some pictures of your bike!

Never ride faster than you can stop

The most important thing on the bike, is the ability to stop when you want to. Second most important is to have it go where you want it to. Above those, is the ability to survive those two not happening as planned.

When you can stop and steer, and it rides properly --- THEN you worry about how it looks and sounds, and how fast if can go.

A 50cc scooter can go fast enough to kill you. Your brain, and your maturity are what let you manage anything that can go faster than that.
