After trading my 01 12R(in at 36K miles and pretty well dialed in) for the 10R - I can safely say that I do't miss the pig at all.

Sitting on a 12 at a showroom recently reminded me of the longish reach to the bars and about how much thought was put into the design of the 10.

I don't miss the extra hunnert pounds but I do miss a lil bit O the torque.

But I don't miss it that much.

My .02 (I had ta put sumthin in this empty forum, yanno)

I had a 2000 ZX12R that i bought to replace my 97 TL1000S. Never liked it. The handling felt heavy and dead. It ended being stolen and no tears were shed. I ended up keeping the TLS until May when I traded it in on the 10. The 10 is a keeper!

I had given some thought to a 12r last year and had done a bit of reseach on typical mods but alas it didn't happen for obvious reasons.

Raced and rode one yesterday for the first time very briefly and yes the weight is instantly noticable and had Mr PoPo not been lurking i would have loved to wind er up.
