So the story begins with the good ol street challengs you all no how it goes first one to blah blah blah eats sh*t. Well I do not often fall prey to this type of thing
but tonight I was all for it. So there were quite a few of us this evening a few gixxers 750/1000s some cbr 1000s and the damn r1.
Now before we continue let me tell you about my bike. I ride a 2002 zx9 f model,my mods are a factory pro jet kit a leo vince full exhaust completely tuned at the stealership for the season, riding on pilot power 2ct.
So here I am thinking tonight I will be eating sh*t these guys are gonna smoke me considering they are all on 06 and up bikes, you know the hype fuel injection power commander custom maps the whole bs stories you here in the street race scene.
Ok now all you tried and true zx9rs remember this is the first zx9 I have owned, it is a 02 and here where are in 2011, now lets get into the meat and potatoes of this starting to be long story.
It's on: we hit the highway and I punched it pushing each gear to somewhere around 10 rpms got her up in fifth everything is flying by at light speed and every single bike that was running that night was far behind kinda like they where on 600's or something I mean one bike was in my rear view , unfortunately gaining fast still got one gear to go but he's gaining ok shift to sixth pin the throttle and go. Now i have a whole new respect for the zx9 she is truly a beast and in my opinion one of the most under rated bikes going. Now we are approaching the eat sh*t exit and this r1 passes me by try as I might I just cant catch him so the ole zx9 gets a second place finish for the night.
Conclusion: we all know riding ability plays a part in all riding scenarios but at the end of the day everybody that night has a new respect for the zx9 and I have earned my nickname flubyu from all my friends on the set. For the $3000 price of this bike and the performance it has it's hard for me to consider buying anything else I love my zx9.
