Another New Guy

Hi all. A year ago I didn't even know that Kawasaki made a GPZ in the 90s. I was looking for a replacement for my threadbare 84 Ninja 900. Something a little comfier with more low end grunt and the ZX14 was not in the budget. I spent a year looking for a low mileage Connie but the few I found were way overpriced.
I saw a month old ad in a local weekly swap and sell it guide for a 95 GPZ with 4k on it. I spent a couple days searching the web and found http://list.gpz1100.com/ and a handful of other sites. That weekend I went and saw the bike and was blown away by the condition of the bike. It looked like a brand new bike, other than a couple of silly Superman stickers (any tips on removing stickers?)
The guy had been listing it locally for a month and hadn't had any takers. I bought it for $2000.00.
Compared to most of you guys on the list I am a casual rider at best but I put about 6000 miles on her last year just as she was. This year I plan on some upgrades, I already picked up some gen mars and a stage 1 dynojet kit, and have a zero gravity sport touring windscreen on its way.
I'll probably be driving you all nuts with NewB questions in the near future, but hey you let me join ;P
