Hello from a new 2014 owner in NM

Just picked up my new 2014 in white! Considered the 30th Anniversary model since Kawi green is awesome, but it is a bit young for me

I came to the ZX from a Ninja 1000 (which I still have) after a ride on the amazing twisties between Alpine and Morenci AZ. I just wanted more go and more turn. Hoping the ZX-10 fills the bill!

So far after about a dozen runs up and down the mountain here in Albuquerque, I am in love. The ZX-10 is definitely the Nk1's sexy hot little sister!

ZX-10r.net looks like a great community, and I am looking forward to mining all the great knowledge on these forums! Track days, here I come!

Before I bought the ZX-10R, I was convinced that keeping the N1K was a good idea. I have a feeling that idea will evaporate soon

I do worry about the long ride (300+ miles per day) comfort of the ZX though. Maybe a gel seat?

Love the white man and with the green accent. I will be doing the same on my 13 white. Can't wait to get my decals in tho haha. The waiting game sucks. I've been on mine for only 340 miles also and love it coming from the 12 zx6r and just had pcv and full exahust and wow stock this thing feels so much smoother and power comes so fast and smooth it's stupid lol. But need to get the Ecu flashed and tuned still. Coming soon. Keep both bikes tho can't go wrong with that.

i had a ninja 1k for about 4500 miles, just hated sitting upright getting blasted by the wind constantly.

new bike looks great, the 2014 white color scheme is growing on me
