Hello from a new guy
I have been on this site a lot, but had never registered until today. I am not the greatest with Social Media, forums, chat rooms etc, (this is actually the first forum I have been a member of).
I have been riding on the street for 20 some odd years, mostly on ZX7's or ZX10's, and have tried the track once(which I plan to return some day to). I am VP in a local MC that I am also a Founder of. Due to my work schedule I now mostly ride on weekends and rarely a weeknight April-Sept.
I bought my 2015 H2 in March of last year and have loved every second of it since. On a very warm day in Dec. 2015 I went out for a ride on my 2008 ZX10 and snapped my chain which damaged my engine case along with so other odds and ends, so instead of putting the aged girl back together I decided to look for a new girl to spend my time with. My Local Dealer had a 2016 H2 on the floor along with ZX10's, but the price tag of the H2 made me want to think about the decision plus I didnt care for the gray frame as much as the green either! So while thinking about what bike should be my next girl, I received a call from my mechanic (not the Local Dealer) who knew I was looking at the H2 and told me that a Used one had just appeared at another Dealer. So a friend of mine who knows the Owner of the Shop who has the used H2 and I went to check it out (after I already had the financing approved of course) and I fell in love with it. The Bike had 200 miles on it, and the story I got whether its true or not, was that a rich father had bought the bike for his son who refused to pay the insurance, so to teach him a lesson the father sold it. I like to think the bike really scarred the last owner.
I brought her home and so far eliminated the stock fender, added a SC-project slip on (full system, flash, & PCV still to come at a later date) applied some Dr. Beasleys paint protection, added a cell phone mount, Puig double bouble and rode it for the season. I ended up roasting the stock rear tire around 1500 miles and chose to try a new brand that hopefully had grip with more mileage. I chose a Michelin Pilot Power 3, which I have not been impressed at all by. I plan to return to the Bridgestone's this season.
Well there is my introduction.
