Just want to say whuuzz-up. Old Racer here. I've been lurking for
awhile and I'm starting to feel guilty. :eek:hno I thought it was time
to join in the festivities.

Looking forward in getting to know everyone.

Oh, I almost forgot. I bought a red one. They are the fast ones

Welcome

Howdy Johnny, welcome to the forum.

Friendly forum here, have fun.

I had a sit on a friend's black ZZR1400 last week, top of my shopping list for a couple of years time. Need to get one before I get too old..... The black ones are faster in the UK :crazyloco

Thanks for the welcome Eddie. Hey, I thought the red ones
were the fast ones :eek:hno
It's good to know that I'm not the only "Old Guy"

Psssst they`re ALL fast!!! lol just wait `til you get it around 8 or 9 grand in fifth.I consider 6th gear to be the "soul searching gear", you will be just a giggling in your helmet and it doesn`t stop anytime soon.as for "pink",... don`t give `em any ideas.LOL.

Glad to know that there are older people buying the ZX-14. I'm finding it, as you said, the best bike I've ever ridden. At 67, I can still appreciate the raw power of the bike. Easier to keep up with the young kids! (Actually, I have to wait for them now...)

Good choice! Keep the rubber side down.

Aaahhhh... rarely see older guys on such powerful bike. Cheerios for joining the club. Mind the 'throttle itchiness' though. It tends to make you forget :mfclap

AHHH,... The bike has more power than I have nerve,... I`ve waited a LONG TIME for this bike!!! Going to the lake is such a treat now!!! Passing cars over a short distance is not a problem anymore.

Damn !!! ,... Now I`m in 3rd place for the "OLD GUY AWARD".just kiddin`, nice to have another old guy to yap with.By the way what colour is your bike???
Ed.

Hey Eddie, look at it this way - old age is like riding the
ZX14 at 130mph or 140 mph. It doesn't make much difference
about your chances of survival. :crazyloco

My biggest kick is when I roll up among a group of parked
sport bike riders, take off my helmet and all they see is
thinning white hair. ::eek:hno Priceless !

What they are not aware of is along with the gray, comes
48 years of experience in RR, Hair Scrambles, Enduro, Trials,
and Drag Racing. Heck, at this point, I feel privledged to
have made it this far. :mfclap (knock on wood)

Bought the black one. I keep the ZX-14 in Oregon (I'm there for about three months of the year). Live in Mexico, and have 600s down here. Started riding when I was 62. Just signed up for track days in Portland, Oregon (summer).
