Hi everyone from Perth, Australia.

Bought my GSXF750 from my brother in law in a three way swap that included my Honda VTR250, I think I got the best deal. :bigthumb

Anyway, here's the obligatory photo

Thanks guys for the welcome and nice comments.

yngveny, it's a 2004 model. The blue is apparently pretty rare in Australia, my bro-in-law was saying this is the only Blue GSXF750 in the state, I'm not 100% sure how accurate that is, but I haven't never seen another one yet.

It's travelled only 10000 kms (just over 6000miles) so looking forward to putting some good time on it.

Thankyou for the kind words.

But I have to confess something, I didn't tell you the whole story....

In Australia, we have different laws on motorcycle licenses, each state is slightly different.

I live in Western Australia, where you start off by getting a 250CC license, then, after a year, you can get your open class ( or as we call it, the big bike license).

I got my 250CC license about 3 years ago. Not a problem, aced the test, aced the practical, rode my VTR250 around, lots of fun. After the year was up, got my L's for the big bike, but didn't have one to practice on or anyone to ride with, so kept riding my 250.

Then about a year ago, my brother in law said he was getting rid of his GSXF750 (the Kat) and wanted to know if I wanted it, at the same time, a friend of mine wanted to get into bikes and was looking at buying a second hand 250, he really liked my VTR. They were both worth the same, so a swap was organised, sold, all in the space of a week. I get the GSXF, my friend gets the VTR, and my brother in law gets his money. excellent...

Problem is... I still don't have a license. The only person I went riding with sold me his bike, and I haven't got around to ringing the bloke I got my first set of lessons from....

So the bike sits in my driveway, hidden under a bike cover, with a trickle power feed to the battery, waiting for me.
