New 959 Owner, on my very first ride after picking it up I went past a photographer by chance on Old Pacific Highway, Sydney who snapped that. Probably riding a little hard on a bike with 7 kms on the clock but I couldn't help myself.



Haven't had a twin since my old VTR1000 in my 20's. To be fair, modern bikes are so strangled with emissions stuff etc I think the VTR would kill the 959 under 6000rpm, but after that it's a different story.
I had a worked 2014 ZX10R before this, but I just found it a bit boring, it was good a everything and unexciting (and ugly).

Been in contact with Tuneboy in Sydney to see if he needs a donor bike too. See how that goes.

Anyway, Hi from a New Zealander living in Sydney!

Welcome to forums Bradley!

Very fortunate and great shot that you were able to get by chance!

Saw that you were in the works in the other thread for possibly getting cruise control. Keep us in the loop for what happens!

Congrats on the bike and welcome to the forum! Nice pic! There's a pretty famous section of road here in the midwest called "Tail of the Dragon" - 318 curves within 11 miles. Very tight and slow, not my personal favorite (too many slow bikes) but they are always photographers along side of the road like that. Fun stuff!
