Hi guys I've been on this forum for about a year now, I've asked a good amount of questions throughout the year. I thought it was finally time I introduced myself and a history of my first motor bike from the very first day that I bought it last year March 2016 till now May 2017. With this new update it will make uploading pictures easy I will show the very first picture I took of my bike till the last one picture I took last week. My name is Aaron live in California city of Pomona I have ridden a motorcycle for about 4 Years now since I was 21 I am now 25 a ZX6R-Kawasaki Ninja 2002. When I was 23 I had to quit a job at a local motorcycle mechanic shop due to the fact my work Visa expired. I was not a mechanic I had very crappy mechanical skills all I knew how to do was change the tire, sprocket, and chain on my motorcycle because I had those things wear out. Did not even know how an engine functioned or even how a carb looked like. After that job I started buying and selling computers and weight lifting equipment on places like craigslist and other apps like OfferUp. One day after months of selling I came across a motorbike someone was selling in LA I thought it was the coolest thing ever and I wanted something small that I could ride around town. At that point I had never ridden anything other than my motorcycle and really wanted to buy myself a Honda Grom to ride around town and to school, and to see what it felt like riding something small and light that I can take anywhere. I always felt like my motorcycle was like a bicycle because I can drive through traffic and thought if I had something smaller and slower I could ride around even more places. Seeing the Motorized bike was like damn I can take it to even more places than a Honda Grom could ever go. Also another reason was because whenever I needed to fix my motorcycle I had to take it to my uncle and he would take days before he had the time to fix it and I would have to take the bus/ borrow a car/ or miss school. So after about a couple months I saw motor bike videos on youtube and decided to get one. I was looking for a red motor bike the same color as my motorcycle. I found one on craigslist about 20 minutes from my place I went to go check it out it the motor looked a bit old. The picture on craigslist was blurry so It didn't look as new as on the picture but the guy turned it on and drove it around and I was like awesome I want it and bought it. I did not know that these HT motors required a lot of maintenance at the time I just convinced myself that they just worked no problem. If I read that they required a lot of maintenance I would have never got it due to the fact I would have felt intimidated about working on the engine not knowing much about it. Thats how I started my first day into motorbiking age 24. One month after my birthday.
