A KAWASAKI BEEYOTCH! :thumbsup: Even went with Kawi green to fully show my loyalty to KHI and big green! :thumbsup:






Man, it was like laying down with an old favorite girlfriend. I was hung over from last night's refreshments and was dreading the ride home and trying to do my hard break-in on the way home, but a few miles and a few twists of the wrist later I was grinning ear to ear and enjoying the hell outta myself. Seems the adrenaline rush of doing 1st/2nd gear wide fuggin' open break-in runs on a 10R cured the hangover. :mrgreen: I honestly didn't know how bad I missed the 10 until I started off from the dealer on the new one. As soon as I picked my foot up off the ground and rolled away from the dealer's front door I knew I made the right decision. :thumbsup:


Here's a few more pics. Haven't taken the good ones yet. Had to take the point & shoot since I was riding it home and had no way of carrying the big camera. Anyway, who doubted me? :mrgreen:

Dude, I'm still floating from the joy of being back on a 10. In all honesty I think I would have been happy with the Gixxer as well, but the one thing that swung me was the firmer feel of the 10R. I knew I could do some adjustments on the Gixxer's suspension/preload and get it to handle awesome, but every time I leaned toward going with the Gixxer I'd remember how sweet the 10R handled and how firm it felt. I'd think about how much I liked the firmness of the 10R and how it handled with my fat ass on it compared to the softer set-up bikes... This one rides just as perfectly with me on it as Diablo did. I'm just convinced that the 10R has the best suspension from the factory for my weight. The thought of getting the Gixx and not being 100% happy with the ride just kept me from being able to go that route.

Anyway, it ain't black... but it *IS* a 10 dammit! Man, I can't express how happy I am to be back on a 10R. The Gixx might be a sweet bike, but I simply can't imagine it being any better. :wink:

To be honest, right down to the wire I was leaning toward the Gixx... But every time I tried to count the 10 out of the running I'd remember how sweet it was. Yesterday I would have said it would be the Gixxer, so if it makes you feel better, you did have me read right. I changed at the very last minute. :wink:

Good deal, I don't have to second guess myself to much in the future. I do feel better. :mrgreen: Just glad you do and thats what counts, welcome back to the 10 world again. :thumbsup:

Nice- If they had a green one avail. when I bought mine, it would have been a tough choice.

So what is it now? The Green Demon?
