I don't miss it

After trading my 01 12R(in at 36K miles and pretty well dialed in) for the 10R - I can safely say that I do't miss the pig at all.

Sitting on a 12 at a showroom recently reminded me of the longish reach to the bars and about how much thought was put into the design of the 10.

I don't miss the extra hunnert pounds but I do miss a lil bit O the torque.

But I don't miss it that much.

My .02 (I had ta put sumthin in this empty forum, yanno)

I'm not a complete idiot...some peices are missing

I had a 2000 ZX12R that i bought to replace my 97 TL1000S. Never liked it. The handling felt heavy and dead. It ended being stolen and no tears were shed. I ended up keeping the TLS until May when I traded it in on the 10. The 10 is a keeper!

I had given some thought to a 12r last year and had done a bit of reseach on typical mods but alas it didn't happen for obvious reasons.

Andy- I think it has to do with whether a reply has been post yet or not.
