Hi spookey,

I'm up in the midlands but don't get much in the way of spare time for ride outs so mainly use the bike for commuting. Let me know if you're up this way though and I'll do likewise if I'm heading near Surrey.

Hey.. how you doing? Getting my bike delivered on Tuesday! Can't wait for it.. and weather looking alright too for a good day out on the lovely Welsh roads ;)

Noticed you've got an orange bike too.. You manage to find any riding gear that goes with the bike? I can't find anything decent!

Let's hope the weather is better for you than it was for me then! I had a 140 mile round trip to collect mine and was soaked to the skin within 10 miles of the trip there on my old bike:rolleyes

I saw a BMW rider yesterday that had black/orange leathers and a black helmet with thick orange stripe over the top. Mine are red/black and he was on a red bike. If he'd been going the same way as me I would have pulled him over and suggested we exchanged kit:crackup

A few years ago there used to be quite a few black/orange bits of riding kit around but they've all disappeared. Hopefully someone will notice the trend amongst UK owners to buy the orange version.

Mine's standard for now but fitting a different sidestand shortly (before the inevitable happens) and also plan to fit a dark tint double bubble and hugger (someone, I think Ermax, does an orange one) before too long. Other changes will wait till next year but likely exhaust (Scorpian favourite at mo), PCIII and a few other cosmetic bits.

Hello To All Uk O7 Zx6r Owners

Hi to all the uk 07 ZX6R owners,

Just finished running in my baby, and yes i have the ticking noise(not too bad yet but i'm keeping my eye or ear on it!). Its totally standard at the moment!

Anybody bought new exhaust yet? Worth the money?

And yes its fallen over (twice) i got crash bungs put on and it turned out to be the best idea i've ever had as i've got away with one small scratch.

How can they engineer an amazing bike but cant design a sidestand?

Even after all that though i love my baby. i've ridden an R6 and there is no comparison. I just crap my pants when i have to leave it on uneven ground.

All the best

Hi guys, Im in North Wales, so not really near any of you lot, but got some of the best roads around here, so always worth a run out to here.

Ive done a couple of things to the bike, strips on the wheels, Akrapovic end can, and looking at a BMC filter at the moment, dont know about all the Power Commander stuff at the moment. Need to sort the screwed bolt heads on the frame so that I can fit my Shogun crash protectors. Ive listening out for the ticking also, its there, but doesnt really sound like anythings wrong at the moment to be honest.

Ben
