Intro post, new rider here!

Well I was referred here by my friend Vern AKA smartbiker, and figured I should give a little background as to my presence here.

I bought an '06 Kawi Ninja ZX-6R in Candy Plasma Blue (or whatever they call it) last month and have been having a blast with it ever since. I'm somewhat trained in the arts of defensive driving from a lifetime of bicycle commuting both in rural Ohio and for my last 6 years in Chicago, and plan to ride my Ninja like everyone is out to kill me. I reside on the south side of the Chi but I'm conveniently close to the Dan Ryan, LSD and 55.

I haven't done any super long rides yet, probably the longest was an awesome trek to the Full Moon last week with Vern on a perfect summer night. Hopefully I'll get some tank or tail bags soon and will be able to take my bike to visit family and friends around the midwest.

I will likely be posting a few questions soon but wanted to properly introduce myself!

Thanks to all for the warm welcome! Hoping to add some HID bulbs to make the ride look better (and safer) soon since mine are all faded out. I'll keep you guys posted!

Operating a motorcycle. So easy, even a caveman can do it. Knowing how to ride? Priceless.

That's quite a stable! I actually went to the dealership to buy a grey R6, but it looked quite a bit worse in person and clearly wasn't as loved by its former owner as my Ninja. Plus, mine came with LoJack, a Yoshi exhaust and a power commander, which sealed the deal. Initially I wasn't crazy about the blue, but now that I've seen it in the sun and different lighting I'm definitely feeling the love.

What kind of bags are you looking for? I'm in the market for some as well. Or did you already get some? Any info would be helpful.
