Talking Hi everyone!

I'm new on this forum but not to riding, been riding since 1994. Started out on a Kawi 600r then after about two months, bought a '94 Kawi ZX900R. I kept that bike until earlier this year and gave it to my 20 year old son. He joined the Marines and will be leaving in Jan. so I figured he would appreciate the bike and have fun over the summer.

Well, he really enjoyed riding his first 'real' street bike for a few months, but then sold his car and the bike for a 2005 GSXR1000. He's been letting me ride the bike pretty much whenever I want, but after two days and over 200 miles, that thing's killing my ass!

So... now, I've got my mind set on comfort more than racetrack agility and am set on getting a ZX14. I 'm gonna wait for the 2012 model to show it's face before I decide buy. I'm looking forward to always learing more and this forum looks like an awesome source for it.

Jim

Randal: [chuckling] Ha! I knew it.
