Thumbs up New Gen 5 10R owner -SoCal

It's funny I've been registered on this site for years but not so recently picked up my new-to-me 2016 ZX-10R ABS. Rode track for some time and raced for a bit with CVMA and WERA West on my Triumph 675R. After deciding I wasn't interesting in racing anymore (not for poor people) it was time for a fun bike. I just happened to stumble across this great deal and next thing you know I picked up this bike in September 2017 with 1,800 miles on the clock.

4 days later she had a FTEcu reflash with autoblip enables and I was flogging her around Willw Springs Raceway. What a track to get acquainted to your first literbike! . Since then I've added an SC Project exhaust, Zero Gravity Corsa windscreen and just been having a blast. This thing is a monster!

Welcome to the Kawasaki world. I started with a Yamaha R6, and was looking for an R1. Im not sure how, but i ended up with a zx10r anniversary, I never looked back. In fact, turned around and bought my wife a 300. every bike sense them has been Kawasaki. All sports bike, Im not into anything else when it comes to bikes. Now Im looking at another zx10r, I can only reach the track 5-10times a year, so its mostly just street riding for me.
