New bike :)

Just picked it up this saturday evening.. 2009 with 1k miles on it. Its my very 1st bike ever. Ive got 2 little 110cc pocket bikes that i have been riding for yrs and always have wanted a full size but was too worried about the power and weight of a full size that i didn't think i would be able to control one… So for yrs i always wanted one but never pursued it… That us until i heard about this bike.. Found out a NEW 2011 would cost me $5500 and i said.. ahh i don't think so, not investing $5500 on a brand new bike, so i started looking for a used one and to find out that these sukers are HARD to find and that they sell QUICK…
Anyways i found this used one and now i got one
Now i just need to get a tag and insurance

thanx guys… very much appreciated.

I just removed the pink decals and got a set of blue decals on order and should be here next week.

Now i just need to find a set of front and rear stands so that i can get the blue pin striping on… Just not sure on what set to get cause ive already ran across like 4 different brands.. Not sure which are crap and which are good and which are great…

Once i get a set of stands, i want to remove the fairings and get a good look at this motor & layout so that i know where everything is for when its time to do repairs / routine maintenance cause i do all the repair work on my cars…

haha yeah its funny how people look at it and see the pink decals and the pink wheel stripes and immediately ask me….

Did you put on the pink decals..?? "AHH NO D*** A**, i purchased it this way"

Why did you buy a USED bike with Pink decals..?? Cause it was owned by a chick b4 i got it D*** A**

So yea waiting on the BLUE decals and i already got the blue wheel pin striping, just have to get this sucker in the air so that i can apply the striping to the wheels… But yea, once done, new pics will come up...
