My first bike was a '99 zx-9r (best year for the zx-9...imo).....bought it used in July of '99. The previous owner bought it in april of '99 he just broke it in an put a pipe on it for me. :thumbsup: Rode it from july'99 to nov. '04.....tore the bike apart in dec. '04 to do major custom work but ran out of money an patience. Took the entire '05 riding season off! Zx-9r in pieces! dec. '05 rolls around an that's when I made up my mind I'm movin on to a zx10r! Feb. '06 I take a trip to Shaolin, NY home of the Wu-Tang Clan to see what kind of deal Staten Island Kawasaki could give me on the '06 zx-10r? The numbers were good an as they say the rest is history!:helmet:

he wouldnt sell you one, heck most people at dealerships really never walk a fresh squid over to a 1000, most will take you by the super sport 600cc or the little mid-class like the zzr600 or sv650s or something along those lines, I worked at a dealership for a little while and never once saw any sales rep walk up and say looking for a bike, you say yes, and he says what are you looking for in a bike, is this your first, you say yes, first place he walked everyone is by all the little 600's then the super sports ect. But I was the same way, I rode a dirt bike sense I was little kid, so when it came time to get a sportbike it was just one big dirt bike haha
