Hello All

Hi, I am new to the forum and to ZX10's
I took a 2005 model for a spin today at my local shop and loved it, it feels really comfortable even though i and 6 foot and a solid guy.

I wanted to fid out how people find them for longer rides as in 300km to 400km trips.

As i am looking to do a few track days, to and from work and day trips and the odd weekend away.

Any help and advice form guys and girls that own the zx10 to someone who is new to them would be much appreciated.

Dave

Hi Dabid and welcome. I personally have done those sort of distances in one day, no problem, but if you are looking for comfort, buy something else.
As far as track days etc goes, you are looking at the perfect bike as everyone else here will probably tell you. Not sure how much riding exp. you have but make sure you get to know it first because they can bite!!!!!!!
Day to day and w/end riding...........fun,fun,fun!!!!!! Awesome bike. Enjoy!!!

Thanks for the reply CUJ091,
I have been riding big cc bikes for about 4 years, big sports tours ST1300 and the like and have recently been riding an 07 ZX14 that thing is a hoot and a half.

Most rides that we do are 300km round trips but spread out over the day. i have heard of some people putting a set of risers on and finding the zx10 a great (super sport tourer) comfortable enough for longish rides.

what annoys me is that it is hard to choose a bike after riding it for 20 minutes.
