Just got my first bike! 1980 Kawasaki 550 ltd.
Got my beginners a few weeks ago, waiting till the safety course starts up.

Having a great time... this thing is so much fun!

Thanks for the well wishes guys, and I am trying to ride as safe as possible. Got the jacket, gloves, helmet and boots. The GF is demanding that I get some pants soon, so that will be my next equipment purchase.

As far as the bike goes.. she needs a bit of work. Needs new mufflers, new tach cable, have to rebuild the carbs... but I got her pretty cheap and I don't mind doing the work.
Planning on upgrading in the next couple years, hopefully to a CBR600

Yah, it the Pheonix 4.0. I like it.. though It's my first bike jacket, so I don't have much to compare it to.

Yah, really does need a new front (don't think it will pass safety without one), but rear is almost brand-new. Any suggestions for a good/cheap front tire?
