Another new fella...

Well, the ZX-10 bug got me. My first streetbike was a new(at the time) 1997 ZX-11. Great bike.... Traded up for an 02 Harley V-Rod and still love it. I went riding with a buddy who has an R1 a few weeks ago and the Harley was definitely struggling. While I though I had the sportbike thing outta my system, this showed me I was wrong!

I spent the last 3 weeks going back and forth on forums torn between the ZX-10R, Gixxer 1000, ZX-14, or waiting to see if Suzuki remakes the Busa next year(no patience for this). I like the speed and comfort of the 14, but I had a ZX-11 and didn't want another "big" bike. I have my big lug Harley for cruisin, and wanted something to fill the agility void.

That left the 10 and the Gixxer. I just kept going back to the 10, thing cast a frikkin spell on me or somethin. So now here I am, waiting to pick my bike up 2morrow.... and it's gonna rain all weekend.

2006 Black ZX-10(Sato rearsets, Akra slip-ons, PCIII USB)

Welcome! :-)

I've got something to say...It's better to burn up, than to fade away!

Please, call me Burner.
