getting the CAT on 21st September

Post  mdrb1979 on Fri Sep 09 2011, 16:32

Hi All

After hunting through the net in search of a good forum on the thundercat here i am. Im due to take delivery of a 97 Cat in yellow and silver on the 21st September and cant wait. Took her out for a jaunt a couple of weeks ago and loved it, seemed so natural and easy to ride.

Will be my first big bike after passing DAS in july. Had a 125cc before that so a bit of a difference, i will in no doubt be trawling through this board for advice etc.

Regards

MDRB great

Hi MDRB,

Welcome to the site - glad you found us. Very Happy

Congratulations on picking up a 'cat. It was my first bike after passing my DAS test too. I'm sure you'll love it, just take time to get acquainted.

Post up some pics once you get your hands on her/him/it. great

Chris

Welcome from another new Cat owner.
Hope you're happy with it and at least you know you can paint it a more respectable colour when you need to hehe

well picked the cat up and boy does it fly, pretty horrible rainy day here but she is a beauty. Takes some work at junctions, she wants plenty of guts to get going but boy once she hits 6k she takes off.

Much fun ahead

Maybe not the best idea taking it up to 6k in the wet. Ride safe.

Looks like you're going to like her then?! Once you form a few impressions post them up on here - we'd be interested to hear what you think.

Ride safely great

congrats on getting on the cat! Don't worry with a bit of practice she will be flying through the junctions aswell, she can be pretty agile if chuck her about Smile ...don't try that in the wet mind you Shocked

Second ride today with a friend who rides a honda cb1000R, the cat did well, she was a bit grumpy when i first woke her up, but about 10mins down the road she got into her stride, junction work is coming, she held her own with the honda(he was taking it easy), some funky filtering going on, once she starts getting above 6k on the rev'ometer she takes off.
Think we are going to have some fun together

I can remember, back in the early 70's, when 6000 rev's was considered nasty, "Bee in a biscuit tin" sort of comments about "Jap Crap"! Things have moved on a bit methinks!
