Hello all,
I'm Amanda. A California native transplanted in Virginia by the military. After a long wait, I finally bought my 300 this weekend. :D
I believe I am now officially a ninja turtle.

Tentative Goals:
Fender eliminator
Powdercoat the wheels
Keep up with the boy's s1000?

It's pretty amazing, not really too much that -needs- to be done.

The bike is a very crisp, cooler-toned white (which is kind of unfortunate because it makes my white helmet look yellowish in comparison) so I would imagine that would look awesome! Any pictures up? :D

I ordered progrip rim tape. It was a wastes of money. The tape kept kinking. I threw it in the trash.
Sorry to hear about your experience but i think it comes down to how it is applied. Not unlike my bad experience with Plasti Dip, utter failure: was textured, cracked and let light through after a whole can. Turned out it was all me, so i'm getting another can and going to try again. Admittedly had no idea what i was doing.

With the wheel tape i've done a few rims and i certainly got better with experience. Key is to ensure the wheels are clean and dry and take your time. it can be a slow progress but like most things taking your time pays dividends.
This would look good! No rim tape. Welcome.

That would look SICK, let us know if you do it and post some pics up.

Welcome to the Ninja clan!
Welcome. Enjoy that new bike!
Ah, I know where that is. We should work on a Norfolk ride once this funky weather gives up. :)

Re: Sunrise. **** fucking no. They seemed like nice people (and I live a minute down the street) until they told me they needed a $900 assembly fee. I was quoted 6,200 out the door (without the extended warranty) by them and one other shop down military highway.
Yeah would definitely love to be able to group ride with more than just 2 of my friends who are also brand new to riding. Gets kinda annoying having to ride behind someone with a permit that wants to check every 10 seconds to make sure you're still behind them while you're getting bored to death and they don't understand alternating the sides of the lane and all that other jazz. Oh and I think the worst is sitting behind traffic because they don't wanna use the power of their bike to switch lanes and GO when it's perfectly safe to do so.

Unfortunately, I did go to Sunrise. It was my only choice and my lady definitely would not have let me go all the way up north to grab a bike... I had even suggested it. But oh well. My "freight and assembly" fee was pretty much the same, but I told them I would only purchase it if they could get me the bike within a week. They pulled strings from a sister dealer in Northern VA and had it en route that night. So that kinda service made me favor them a little.
