New Pearland rider

Just moved to Pearland area about 2 months ago from Lake Jackson. I was riding a Honda Magna for the past 4-5 years, now I'm back into sportsbikes with my new Ninja Zx-12r. Picked up last Thursday brand new, and already getting the 600mile maintenance this week, and then I'll be ready to go.

Nice bike and welcome to the boards. Come on out to the beach meet this weekend with us. A few of us are meeting up in Clear Lake before we head out there.

Re: New Pearland rider

Definitely might be down for that, two of my buddies were so envious that they're ready to drive as far as Oklahoma to find some 05 Gixxer 600. They've got preapproved loans in their hands, if anybody knows of a dealership with any new '05 600's preferably in red/black/silver.

Re: New Pearland rider

Capa, before you ask .... no I do not do track days, not on this new bike...... she's going to become the drag bike in a few years. Next spring however, i plan on building an '00 Gixxer 750 into a track bike.

Re: New Pearland rider

I figured you would ask that because I lurked around here for a few weeks to see if everyone was cool before I joined. *Since I joined, that means you all get the Joe stamp of approval*. right:


Loved the Magna for around town, good pull off the line, decent torque around 55, with jetted carbs and gutted pipes I put down 93hp. Only complaint is the gearing is so low for quick acceleration, it feels like you need to upshift if you cruise at 80mph. 80 in 5th gear puts you at almost 5,000rpms, she doesn't redline until 10,500, but it still feels like it needs one more gear if you go crosscountry like I tried to do a couple times. Synopsis, around town it's a great boulevard bruiser, and if someone feels scrappy it'll still pull off mid 12's with pipes/jets.

Joe
