    Well I am the stoked owner of a brand new Ninja 300 :p

    I always love the story regarding Kawasakis and that colour green. It was considered a bad luck colour for the Japanese, but they went ahead and painted their bikes in that colour anyway. I think they look awesome! Definitely not a bad luck story for Kawasaki! :D

    (Ps: I can't be bothered Googling the story behind it, but I'm sure others will save my fingers from doing all the walking :lol:)

    Have a look, Kawasaki manufacturing are one of the biggest manufacturing businesses in the world, you may not know it but you may use one of their products everyday, I have a KX250 my son has a KX60 and I also have a Kawasaki jet ski, love the Kawasaki
    just found this, Kawasaki Heavy Industries - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    hope I am allowed to post a wiki link

    Hiya Pete :)

    Mate personally my experience with road bikes is limited to a few however this one is incredible. Extremely easy to ride, change gears, steer etc etc. It's a very smooth and comfortable feeling and has a changed seating posture to allow greater comfort for.longer distances. It still has plenty of balls (I'm 94kg...so not light) and it moves well with me riding it. If there is anything particular you would like to know let me know :)

    - - - Updated - - -

    P.s love the carbon exhaust. I will look at getting one down the track...and a few other things too :)

    - - - Updated - - -

    Thanks mate :) yeah I have seen to many toss pots on the road and already they tailgate in bad weather when I'm on the bike.....

    Haha I might do that eventually actually...like lizard scales or something :p but for now will keep it as it is :)

    Get into it :) (when you are old enough) so much more freedom than a car and you are (hopefully) so much more aware. Having a bike has opened my eyes to the vast amount of wan _ _ _ _ on the road.

    Very nice!!! Always loved the ninja's, and love that green. Usually green isn't a colour I like either, but this is just the right shade :D

    I went for a nice ride on my V Star 650 Classic on the Great Ocean Road to Lorne yesterday, I live in Grovedale so the GOR isn't far from me. I feel pretty lucky to live so close to the best motorcycling road in the country! Recently had Vance and Hines Short Shots put on too, check out the sound difference:
