New to the boards

Hi everyone!

About to get my A2 license. This friday will go and see a '13 ABS Black Ninja, if it looks fine I'll bring it home (inside a van ) and put it in the garage until I can ride it.

Already reading Total Control, Proficent Motorcycling and A Twist of the Wrist 2 and I have a trip planned to Andorra to get all my gear.

Hope to share nice moments with all you guys and eager to learn lots of stuff about the bike and riding in general.

Regards from Spain!

Unfortunately the bike was a mess.

Rusty manifold and exhaust tip, discs needed replacing, scratches all over the place, needed new tyres, condesation in headlights, front fairing not well adjusted. Guy was asking for 3100 ($3300). I didn't even wait for him to start it up, I just left.

Not enough posts to share an imgur gallery I made with the pocs I took, will come back when I'm allowed to do so.

Feeling a bit down atm, guess I'll have to keep searching.

Since the bike is rolling into its 4th production year, they're starting to be prevalent on the used market. Good luck with your search.

Good luck. Be patient. This is the perfect season to purchase.

Riding it like I financed it.

Thanks guys. Will be seeing a 2015 SE with 8k kms tomorrow. Looks pretty neat in the pictures. If we get to a understanding with the price and it's as good as it looks I'll get it. They're asking for 3990 EUR, would buy for 3700 EUR name changed and delivered to my door.

There's a 2014 SE ABS by me with 220 miles on the odometer. Yes 220 miles. Going for $3,500. Pretty much brand new bike with all the reflectors. Dropped once going 0mph. He's looking to sell quick because he's moving to the west coast. Good deals can be had if you're patient.

Went to see an April 2016 white non ABS yesterday with 5.000km on it. It's in mint condition, made an offer, owner has to give it a thought and tell me something by the end of the week.

Could this be my Ninja 300 at last? Not cheap (around 1k less than brand new) but it's in my home town so I won't have to be bothered with shipping.

At first I wasn't very excited about the color but live the pearl effect is noticeably prettier. We'll see how it goes..
