Hi Crazy Riders,

I am a Japanese guy living in Bangkok, Thailand. And my bike is '05 G-Hopper color.
I would like to tell you "How Kawi riders are treated in Japan... (Sneers at ourselves)".
------------------------
They...;
1. are not satisfied if there is no noise from the bike.
2. say "Is this engine working? Is it really on it? ******!! huh?!" when they see HONDA in-line 4.
3. blow up when they see very rhythmical idling sound.
4. (The next thing they knew,) open up head valve cover.
5. become worried like "Does this bike have enough oil?" when they can't see oil
leaking.
6. think that it is natural thing that the coolant gets lower level.
7. The sound of Cam-chain or Tappet are not noise, but a carol.
8. keep the gentle men's manner to keep enough tools to make the bike into
pieces.
9. feel uncomfortable when they can't see many tools messed in their house.
10. love the letter "Z".
11. love the letter "W" as well.
12. know 1 cylinder dies after washing the bike.
13. always talk proudly about the company Kawasaki as they used to
produce fighter plane.
14. say that each gear has "hidden-neutral".
15. feel calm when they find a holiday of paint behind of fairings.
16. love the letter "K" as well, of course.
17. send HONDA to junkyard within 2 weeks if they ride it.
18. always envy friend's high-quality finished bike.
19. like talk about "soul" or "spirits" more than technical topics.

20. .... please add by yourself.
-----------------------

In Japan, Kawi bike is called as "Men's bike".
I am really worried when I think Kawasaki makes Helicopter and Jetplane with its quality control.

Sorry about my poor English, but I hope somebody can re-write above with his good English.

Hi There,

Everybody thinks his bike is the best in the world.
And Kawasaki Riders are so happy to hear like my jokes in Japan.
Those jokes are not piss-talking but a kind of respect from the other brand's riders. In fact, we call SUZUKI riders as "kinko" or "perverts" when we see them. But they say "Thank you!".
Please understand my jokes as "How Kawi riders love their bikes..." and "How Kawi riders sneer at themselves...".

Oil leaking is an Order of Kawi bikes!
Noise is throb!!
We don't care even if the shop mechanic says "Because it is Kawasaki"!

Since I'm half Japanese, I'll translate what Mootod meant to say:

How Japanese Kawi owners feel about their Kawis and 10R's!

They:

1. ...aren't satisfied if they don't hear engine noise from their bike.
2. ...look at a Honda owner's bike and say, "Is this bike even on, you ***?!"
3. ...get pissed if their Kawi starts idling very smoothly like a POS Honda. (see #2)
4. ...then do a tear-down and pull the head cover in anger.
5. ...start to wonder if they've got enough oil in the bike if they don't see any leaks!
6. ...think it's normal to always be running low on engine coolant.
7. ...think the sounds of the Cam-chain or tappets aren't noise, but music.
8. ...think a true bike owner should have enough tools to do their own bike maintenance.
9. ...don't feel like a proper owner without seeing their tools laying around the house.
10. ...love the letter Z.
11. ...also love the letter W.
12. ...always expect 1 cylinder to misfire after a bike wash.
13. ...always speak highly of Kawasaki, as it's the only bike manufaturer that has produced fighter planes.
14. ...say that every gear has its own 'hidden neutral.'
15. ...smile proudly when they see a colorful medley on the fairing insides on their used Kawi.
16. ...also love the letter K, for obvious reasons.
17. ...throw out the Honda they bought after two weeks of ownership.
18. ...secretly envy the fit and finish of their friend's Honda.
19. ...talk more about the 'passion' and 'soul' of their Kawi instead of the technical.


20. ...laugh at all the squids who prefer their dime-a-dozen gsxr's.

#21- Brag about the min 500 bucks we saved cause Kawi's are cheaper than the other brands to buy porn and lap dances
