Its an amazing bike, but its a PAIN-IN-THE-REAR to get set up! The 2011 ZX10 is rock solid everywhere. My Beemer is an animal but feels loose. I got the ZX10 brand new and the BMW used maybe thats why, but my god talk about a diva!!! In august im gonna totally break the beemer down and get it all checked out and maybe it will feel better, but yea there is something special about riding and being seen on the s1000...just ask my wife about the comments she indured at Daytona lol

gotta kill capt stupid!!!

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.

09' Ice Blended Peppermint Mocha Frappuccino
10' Venti Mocha Latte spilled some of it, was too hot
11' Peppermint Mocha W/Extra Shot of Espresso
12' Eggnog Venti Latte
13' Bagel
14' Standard Drip (since a Venti latte went up 20 cents)

Take a risk, and you may lose. Never risk, and you will always lose.
