Howdy! Just purchased the 2012 zx 14r SE Oct 1st. I put in alot of homework in for about two years sizing up every contender out there. My history of bikes is not as many as others, but I am proud of the progression. My first was a Briggs and Stratton 5 horsepower minibike in 1972, 1973 Triumph Bonneville 650, 1977 Kawasaki KZ 650, 1999 yamaha r1,2006 zx10r, and presently a 1976 HD electra Glide (98%original including Harley orange paint) along with the meanie greenie. What a blast this zx14r is to ride. Any issue or or concern that I have or had this hardhead comes here to this forum . Furthermore, thanks to all of you that participate in this forum. Have a great weekend! Semper Fi.
