someone does a chop job of the ZX-RR GP bike and the new ZX-6R, and everybody gets their panties in a twist about how they don't like what Kawasaki is doing.

The mysterious ZX10 surfaces again. More lives than the Loch Ness Monster it has. This bike was supposed to debut in 2001, no 2002, no 2004. I think I'll just wait until Kawasaki comes out with the pictures.

I'm a little tired of sketches and computer images myself. It's not just the ZX-10. It seems like everytime someone wants a little press coverage, you just release an image of a motorcycle.



I certainly hope this isn't what it will look like. Other than Yamaha, the Japanese have created another level of UJMs with every one of them looking identical.

As usual, MR. ALLCAPS keeps it real. Nice to see he's still out there, setting sissy riders straight on the issues...

There's still not a phantom bike out there that has been predicted anywhere near as many times as the "New V-max" though. I wish that that one would just go away (unless I'm wrong and it actually exists).

Hey, wha'ts the update on the Electra-Dribbler? The dealer do you right? I wouldn't have let him touch it, but that's just me.

Don't worry, Gabe. Darwinism will soon kick in just like the Mr. Clean, and you'll be in a much better, calmer place.



And it's okay, you don't have to shout...



Peace.

They replaced the inspection cover gasket which wasn't the problem. Now they think it's the inner primary. I told them when I took it in the first time that the oil was over-filled during setup but no one listens to a yuppie like me.



Trust me, the dealer won't get any of my regular service business. I have a trusted friend/neighbor/wrench who has his own shop. He worked on my Low Rider for five years without screwing it up.



I know I should be doing my own work but since I'm short on time/tools/skill I'd rather pay him. He gives me the bro's deal anyway so it doesn't cost that much to get it done right.



So how much damage could be done with an over-filled crankcase during breakin?

Default I will NOT relax either!

You gotta know that all the makers put these trial balloons out there to see if they float or flop. A lack of critique means acceptance.



SO UNDERSTAND THIS, I am not uptight over the inbred ugly a$$ ZX10!



But if this is what it will look like, I won't buy one either. Hey, I admit I am shallow. While beauty is only skin deep, ugly goes to the bone.
