FNG from S/GA
Just wanted to to say hello. Getting ready to purchase a 17' Z650 ABS( white).
A little background. I'm a newb to the motorcycling world and a little long in the tooth at 55 years old. I have never owned a mc and have only ridden one a hand full of times.
That being said I have been a drag racer, car, for many years. Back in my younger days I raced road bicycles (USCF Cat 3 racer) and have done my fair share of bombing down the mountains of N/GA on a 19 pound road bike at 50+ mph on a 23mm wide tire.
I plan on taking the motorcycle safety course and will have the appropriate gear. Firm believer in safety as in drag racing I wore fire pants/jacket /shoes/gloves, neck collar and full faced helmet.
Enough rambling. I look forward to talking with other Z650 riders and I'm sure I'll have plenty questions.
