Had to share.

I've sorta been thinking of dual sports, adventure bikes or sport tourers as a 2nd bike.

Then I started to get a zx14 (in blue) bug, but I'm not ready to part with the ten.

So it occurred to me that if I sell my 94 900rr and buy a ZX11, then that could cover the "sport touring" and general long straight Florida roads and I can still have the 10.:mrgreen:

Then I found this, should be going to see it/ buy it tomorrow- under $4000.00, 2nd owner, extras, 13000 miles, recent tires.....ready to go.

Not a fan of red but I do like the black frame and this is more of a blood red or maroon.

Whatcha think??

Guess I'll be riding to Daytona this year after all- I don't take the 10 to theif week.

I think it's a purty bike that will make for a comfy slabber and will in turn serve it's intended purpose quite well... :helmet:

Yeah, the 900rr is fun and versatile, but a little too similar to the 10 minus the extra power- time for a change.

My honda generator will be lonely in the soon to be all kawi garage.

Great bikes...tons of aftermarket support. should be able to outfit it to the T's off ebay. Sounds like a winner.

you got a buyer for the 900? tell me some about it....
I have offered it back to the friend I bought it from 1st, if not another friend may buy it.

Since those are "mays"-

It is a 94, my friend bought it from the 2nd owner (I was with him and test rode it)

It was mint at the time, wht/red/blk, 32k miles. 1st owner was a honda tech.

While friend owned it the bike got looped at probably 20 to 30 mph and accelerating as it left the rider (supposedly not my friend)

Then we fixed it with mostly ebay parts, ontario tree, fiberglass front upper, I added rearsets with shift linkage from a 96, and some other minor stuff.

Will let you know if it goes for sale:helmet:

almost 39000 miles now.

Runs great, never a problem.

Try to avoid the Corbin seat, lowers your hips decreasing leg room, and that seat is hard as a rock!!!!! The D model responds very well to careful tuning. Although it has a 40 degree ignitor rotor, it wants 45. The last version of dyno jets' carb kit works very well.
