No offense to everybody here, but who cares what magazine says this bike is better than this one?... I could have bought the new ducati, but instead bought my ninja... I didn't do it because I think the Kawi is a better bike... I bought it because I want to make this bike mine... I plan on customizing and doing things I want to do... I want parts available and if needed mechanics that can do work that I can't... it's the availability of parts and service that made me get a Kawi... bang for the buck... absolutely... plus... I had a duc before... and I can tell you it spent more time in the shop than carving roads... as for BMW... from one side it's a great looking bike... from the other it's a nice looking bike... from the front it's ugly as hell... IMHO i like the look, parts availability and service... that can't be had with German, or Italian manufactured bikes...
I couldn't agree more. It's not about the reviews and what others think. It's what I (or you) want and are willing to pull out the wallet for.
I mean take for instance Starbucks coffee.
Sure, there are other fine coffee houses that provide fine Arabic coffee beans with a plethora of flavors and chocolates flown in from other countries like Sweeden, France, Italy. And yes, Starbucks Venit Mocha Latte has a slightly higher bitter dark roast after taste after each indulging sip. And yes some like the other establishments. But let's be honest with ourselves and think outside the box. Let's take for example a date: Hey babe, wanna grab coffee at 7/11 or mabye hit up Dennys for some fine coffee?
No, of course one wouldn't do that, uh duh.
the first thing that comes to mind is Starbucks. It's a place where one goes not just for the coffee but to bask in the ambience that captivates our senses. It's where you want to be seen, meet up, hang out, study, before or after work for a pick me up.
So by the same token, that's why I (well "we" for that matter) chose the
ZX-10R. It comes down to the captivating and enticing emmotions that it entails.
