Newbie from England

Hi, I have been lurking on here for a couple of weeks and i have a test ride booked for tomorrow (Sat) so thought i would join up. Been waiting for some decent weather for the test so i can have a good ride around North Wales.

Currently riding a ZX7R which i have had for 12 years now but a 300 mile ride now batters me and i need some comfort with no lack of excitement

One more sleep !

Welcome!

Stock tyres are good enough but seem to be wearing down at a rapid rate
