I swear~ I have maybe put 30 miles on my Gixxer! The longest ride was with Teresa a few months ago! Seems like everytime I want to ride it, my husband has other plans to do something! However, he's in London right now, and after that he'll be in Bogota for 10days, so maybe I'll finally get to do some riding!!

Can't beat that price. Interested to see what if any problems pop up with a chinese bike.

I like it....looks badass for a 125cc Chinese bike. Let us know how it holds up. If it does hold up fair, this would be a GREAT beginner bike for the money. You sound a lil' sarcastic on what you got though...Can you tell it was "MADE IN CHINA" already? Anxiously awaiting feedback.

I actually bought this bike with intention of selling them as something to do. But I first had to buy one first to see if I would want to represent it. If I'm not pleased to some degree, I wouldn't sell them to my friends or "customers".
I was wanting to have parts, mods, available, and specialize in the bike and only this bike! Just want to be involved in bikes somehow! I don't think it's worth anymore than what I paid for it; it's the shipping that bites!

I've been kind of busy working at my brothers coin operated car wash in N houston(at west rd and airline) while he's gone to Cambodia on church work. So when I've gotten home, I've been a little tired to work on the bike! lol

I guess I had sounded kind of sarcastic about the bike as I ran into some minor problems that kind of me off for something being new! Stupid stuff: main gas line had a cut in it, float bowl drain screw was hanging by a thread leaking, shifter was bent, exhaust too close to plastic faring warping it, eletrical problem(my fault), rear seat release cable messed up, and a couple others. Nothing major by any means so far. I'm sure that with each bike, comes its own issues! However, I'm still having a little fun doing something, problem solving has its own privelges/rewards of accomplishment. I'll try to finish up on it this afternoon and give it a good test run, and write later this evening. Have a great day EVERYONE!

Had nothing better to do!

I am sure that the bikes will all have some small issues. Its all up to you as to how much *work* you want to have to sink into it. It will be interesting to see how well it holds up to daily/weekly use. Keep us posted Had nothing better to do!

alot of japanese bikes come with issues too. thing is the dealers mechanics get them sorted out before they hit the show room floor. same with any other cars or trucks that come from the factory.

there was a time when japanese fit and finish was questionable as well, they sure have come a long way!! The more of these chinese units we get our hands on and report the problems to the manufacturers and distributors, the better they will become. I guess only time will tell though. I would be interested in running one of these around the track a few laps, keep us in the loop.
