Just brought a k9 home to the family!

Veryyyy happy to have brought home a new to me K9 1000 today! My first 1000, 3rd gixxer. She's beautiful, has 11k miles, full yoshi exaust, power comander, and runs like she's brand new. Fairings are almost mint. Here's some pictures.

Sweet ride. I keep thinking I want a liter-bike too, then I twist the throttle on my 750 & think yeah this is plenty

I know some things about some things but I don't know jack about a whole lot more.

Nice looking bike. It's nice that you got a break between the snows to ride it some.

I thought the same, and it really is but the difference on low-end power is awesome to have. Not my first time riding one but this is faster than any one I've been on for sure. Still keeping the 750 though that's for sure

Ya seriously. Its beautiful out roght now(45 degrees lol) but I'm stuck at work till 9. Tried to rode hmit here at 8 this morning but it didn't start! I was pissed. I'm assuming the battery is just weak. So Ibought a battery tender to plug into the existing plug on the side of the bike and will change batteries soon. Was 19 degrees overnight I'm assuming that's why.
