First week on the bike (pics)

Well I bought the bike last year, took my time to get into the shape it is now and actually got my bike license again that I let expire over 15 years ago.
The bike is ready, I'm ready, winter is gone.
Some pics from my first week.
Man I love this bike. I really do want to ride it everyday.
My temperature gauge isn't working, I found out the hard way my On, and Reserve are switched around and ran out of gas! :D
Definitely a woospy shitsy moment, was thankful I wasn't riding alone at that time lol
Other than that the bike is mint. I was expecting some little things.

The weather has been favourable. If it continues like this either tomorrow or the next day I'm going to take her up to the beach. Find some nice windy roads. (I hope! I'll check google maps to plan a route)

Nice!
Nice house!
Your license expires? I was 16 and as long as I took a driving test on 150cc or larger I could ride anything. Class M on my license is forever

We have graduated license. I let my M2 expire. I rode a Suzuki RG gamma 250, 500, yamaha Virago750, Honda CB650, Harley1340 evo... But was still a teen and did car mods... Then crash the car... Total loss.
In the late 90s.
The car stuff regrettably ended my bike fun at the time.
Now.... It's a comeback. Goy my dream ZX7. Need to find my old KX race bikes i competed with. On and off road for this old timer.
I'm happy to report I'm a careful stay off my lawn collector. Not a high speed rookie

Thank you! I think she looks amazing. I take lots of pics of this bike, it's like one of my kids.
It's not 100% perfect, she has 52,000km but I did a lot of work to her. Lots of cosmetic cleaning up/new parts, New cams and followers, the carbs cleaned and balance, new tires. It seems to be a happy bike!

I need to powder coat the wheels next winter.

Oh that house BTW isn't mine, it's a protected Historical House a couple blocks away from me. I love to take pics there, especially the summer. Photo whoring in scenic areas is a bit of a hobby lol
There will be more :O

I'm lucky if I remember what day it is. No worries lol
It was taken as a compliment anyway, very kind of you!

I may have got the ROTM already but I'll post up lots more pics as the season progresses. I got a helmet cam too, may add some rides to my youtube channel at some point also. Just have to figure out the mounts and buy a good SD card.
