I suppose I should start this off.

My first motorcycle was a 1990 Ninja 750R, back when Kawi use to put the cool Japanese character writing on the lower fairings. I wish they still did that.

Eventually went to a 2001 ZX-6R, then followed that up with a brand new 2002 ZX-12R which I fell in love with.

I currently picked up a 2005 ZX-10R, but both the 10R and the 12R are out the door for sale.

I already put a non-refundable $500 deposit down on a new black 2006 ZX-10R, so for now I just wait until it arrives. I cant wait, hopin' to have it by this December.

Hi, I'm one of the old goats that will be hanging around here.
CurrentlyI have a Y2K ZX12R , Z1000, ST1100, CB750.
Those are subject to change at a moments notice

My favorite Ninja is/was the ZX11 C models. I had a C4 when I bought the 12R. The C4 spent all summer setting in the garage, so that fall I sold it. I should have kept it

Hopefully the ZX14 will be much more like the ZX11 than the ZX12R.

hey, Jafar here.

'05 ZX6R with just over 4K on it now, i think. Pilot Powers are awesome, just tried them for the first time--get better mileage than the 014s and just as sticky.

i just bought the bike on the 22nd of October. the next day me and a buddie took "good" roads to california, eventually ending up on Ojai(sp), in souther cali. then pounded the freeway a bit, not too much, on the way back. cali has all the good roads, i need to move down there.

It is a 1999 ZX9R, candy blue, has a full Muzzy set up with titanum (sp) header and carbon pipe, pilots on the rims, sprocket in the rear is sized downed not sure how much but it makes my R6 sprocket look huge! It was somones race bike when I bought it and it is FAST! Oh yea it was lowerd so she can touch the ground and will have to take down to last setting on the dogbone so she can be flat footed. :D

Hi,

New guy here. I ride an '86 ZX1000R and it's my first bike. I've had it since this past summer and it's been a blast to ride. I'd like to keep it one more season and start looking for a new 10R or a used 12R. I've been eyeballin' those new Z1000's, too...anything to get away from a bike with carbs

Talk to Ozzy on the forum. Besides his Z1000 that he has listed in the Classifieds, he also has a ZX-12R that I'm sure he will part out with for fair market value.

I'm a member over at BigBikeWorld and read Ozzy's post and figured I'd come over here and support a Kawi site.

Not much to tell about myself have been riding a few years, currently own a 89 ZX-10 and 04 Zx-10R. Both are fantastic machines and can't imagine ever tiring of riding either bike. If someone could help post a pic I'd put one up of the 2 beasts.

My H2 is the first Kawasaki I have owned in several years and i'm very much looking forward to getting my project bike on the street by next summer.
Any other 2 strokers out there?

Hello; I'm Jim, also known as late apex. I ride an 03' zed1000. I'll be the first to admit that I bought the wrong bike. It's not that the zed isn't one of the best looking bikes out there, but that they handle like old poo. One gsxr 1000 front end later and it handles like fresh poo.

Anyway, I hope the new forum takes off. Kawi's do rule.

Hey Jafar,
Just so happens i lived in Ojai (O-hi) for four years right there off hwy 33.
Great place to ride in fact it doesn't get much better.
I just started planning a trip down so i can do some riding(in the sunshine) soon.
Thinking i might do it right after Turkey day since i want to visit my Dad in AZ anyway.
I'll be hauling my bike down in the back of my truck.
Geeze, All this talk of riding the 33 has me in need of a cold shower!
