Congrats man.
The nine is a great ride.
And I saw one of those gold ones the other day,
very sweet, and very distinctive.
Enjoy, and keep her rubber side down!

Is winter over yet?

Re: Let the good times roll baby!!!! Just bought a

Is it actually gold? From pics it looks copperish. I would love it if it was a ruster orange. One other pic that I saw made it look brown. I think I am going to get the Green.

I Burn Dust and You Can Eat my rubber!!!!

Hey, great choice. Take it easy with her(at first), and
break her in properly. She will love you for it in the end.
I don't much care for this years colors, but then again I
have yet to see one of the 2002 models in person, and that
makes all of the difference. Although, there are alot of
varied opinions out there, I believe it's hard to go wrong
with the ZX9R. Welcome to the ZX9R experience.

Congrats!

I was undecided about that color - and still haven't seen it on a 'nine, but the dealer has a Mean Streak in copper and I really like it now.

Break it in well, and enjoy!
