New guy on a bike

Hey there!

Just a bit about me; I'm South African (born and raised), I've lived in Houston for just under 7yrs now. I'm a Specialist in the Texas Army National Guard and love Texas and the States.

I've wanted a Kawi Ninja for over 10yrs. I finally got the finances put together to pick up a 2011 zx6R in March, 2012 and it's been completely worth the wait. I've added an M4 GP slip-on, switched out the grips, added a Cycle Pirates adjustable shift lever and a K&N high speed air filter.

So far, I've had one wreck (got cut off and brake-checked at 55mph on the 225 eastbound at 6:15am). Bike was in the shop for 51 days with 9 points of impact along the left side.

Feel free to ask any questions about South Africa, the Guard, my bike, or whatever.

Nope, I don't fly it... yet. I'm working on becoming an Apache pilot, though. Byrdman, I've probably seen your bike on post a few times.

88M, but I was in a 92F slot for a while. I've got a Warrant packet in the works, though.
