ZX10R First Gen sighting...giddy

Man those First Gen 10Rs look so nice and even though I own one when I see it on the Street from my car I get all giddy. My 8yr old son was sleeping and I yelled out LOOK a ZX10R!!!!!!!!! it was Orange but that's ok

I really love the look of a first Gen 10R, there is no mistaking it for another bike and you know it's dead serious ...and it's not Gixxer like where you see one all the time and they all look the same.

You guys are lucky with those first gens.Especially those TI ones.
I bought into the 2nd gen one myself.
The last time I bought a 1st gen bike was back in 85 I bought a 1st gen,RED-Black-Silver ZX6R.It had several recalls against it through out the year,but a dependable bike.

It always puts a smile on my face when I pull the sheet I use to cover it off and start it up.
