1st month on a moto

Hello everyone. My name is Mauricio and I am new the the motocycle hobby. I have exactly 1 month experience on my very beat up (only dropped several times) Kawasaki Ninja.

I wish I knew more about the bike but I am still trying to learn cc's as opposed to ci's. I used to be into Fast Mustangs and have owned several in the past.

I must say that this motocycle buisness is REALLY a different world altogether. Just thought I'd introduce myself and join the discussions....

I'm in West Houston BTW.

Welcome, Fast mustangs? Is there such a thing?, The cc-ci thing is 1000 cc is 1.0 liter, so a 5.0 mustang per say is approx 5000 cc, so should it be 5 times faster than my gixxer 1000?? I,m willing to give it a go

welcome!

I'm a noob too. Only been riding for 2 months now. It is lots of fun, but my muffler bearings fried on me and now I have to walk until I can get them in. I ordered some really slick unobtanium coated ceramic bearings for my Houyaung from North Korea last week. Once they come in, I'm gonna pop whoolies all over PP1!
