I had my 2000 Bird and a 2008 ZX14 at the same time. The Bird was nice but the suspension was subpar as were the brakes and the clutch. Bird only had 18k miles when I sold it. The only reason I sold the ZX was that I got it for a ridiculous price and flipped it. Made $2700 on that bike just by storing it for the winter. Knew I wasn't going to get my money back on the Bird so kept it for a bit longer. Regretted selling the ZX but money talks. Haven't ridden a 14R but if it's half as nice as the 2008 ZX I'm sure I'll be happy. Good luck with the sale and finding a Bird that meets your needs.
