Hi everybody.
 
My name is Jerry. I havent had a street bike in a few years. Last one a 95 ZX11D. I loved it. I just bought a 2000 ZX12R off ebay last week w/5600 miles. Im so excited! Ive read all 7 pages of this forum and itll be a pleasure getting to know you guys. I am planning on flying out to Montana and riding it back (1444 miles) unless I can find a quicker way. Best price on shipping is $503 but, itll take 5 weeks to get it. So for now, I am looking at June 13th /14th. Only pics I have are from the ebay listing. I will keep you posted.
Jerry

Thanks for all the welcomes. I am still trying to go get the bike from Montana. It seems whenever our schedules work, the weather is bad. I will post pictures as soon as I get the bike. I tried to add a pic from the ebay ad but the site wouldnt let me.

Welcome Jerry!

Had a thought come to mind. I ship cars all over the country and have never had any car I've shipped take longer than a week or 2 from pick up to delivery to the client. 5 or 6 weeks seems like a LONG time to get it shipped. Who were you using? I might be able to get you a contact that would be able to get it quicker if you didn't want to ride all those miles back on an unfamiliar bike.

Yes Jason, I am interested in shipping. Ive been on the phone most of the morning with shipping companys but none seem to be able say for sure when id get it. I think they let drivers bid on the shipment. But, yes I would appreciate any contacts you may have. (Haul Bikes is the best price. but, 5 weeks they still say).
I also found out this is how we add pics on here....http://s866.photobucket.com/albums/a...dnjones/ZX12R/

^^^^^...Is the thing I'd fret about, Jerry. Welcome aboard, man.

Yes, especially with the bad weather that has been out that way for the longest time. It doesnt look bad in red, just more of a hello officer than I wanted. So far, I have a good bid for $500 to deliver to chicago near my work by next sat. I may jump on that deal. And Thanks man! I am excited!

BigRuss 07-09-2010 12:44 PM

btw she is purrdy

JEDNJONES 07-21-2010 12:15 AM

Thanks guys! I found a shipper to pick it up in Montana and bring it to Rockford, IL where I work then rode it back the 500 miles home. Ive already put about 1500 on it! I cant believe the difference in all areas of performance compared to the ZX11D I had. Im going to lose my liscence very soon. Im trying to decide what mounts to buy for GPS, Radar etc.
