I'll step up to the plate nancy. Let's talk tax returns... We'll clear 25 grand per month in 05. How about you?

The zzr and the xx are the the next progression of the old 1000f, my bike, and the zx-11, my brother's bike. We both lust for each of them respectively...



Though... I'm still thinging the ZX-9 is the best blend of performance and comfort. Longride will back me up. The VFR has nothing on the ZX-9.

Default Re: Z750

Being that the ZR-7 was last offered for the US in 2003 the Z750 IS a replacement for it. The Ninja 500 remains, as I hope it will for time to come. As for many, it was my first ride into the world motorcycling



I agree about the Z750 fairing not looking right. It's not that it's unattractive--and it should do a better job than the Z1000's (and Euro Z750's)--it just doesn't fit the bike. Maybe a spare Z1000 fairing can be retrofitted. I'm sure it'll suit all of those dedicated ZR-7 guys at RiderForums.com who have been eagerly anticipating it's arrival after all of the rumors about it coming or not.

Default Re: Sean is right this time.

Yes it is. "Confront" is a verb. Verbs can be changed into adjectives by adding the "-able" suffix.



Another example: v. "beat", adj. "beatable".



You could say "ZX600s can be beaten by almost any motorcycle" or "ZX600s are beatable by almost any motorcycle."



You can say either "That thing can be confronted" or "That thing is confrontable".



You really should have paid attention in English class.

Well, if you weren't poor, you could afford to buy a spare Z1000 fairing and fit it on the US Z570S. Better yet, just get the Z1000.



That silver 05 Z1000 looks nice, although I'm more partial to the black.



Don't knock that blue until you see it in the flesh. I've seen paint jobs that look fugly on print or in digital form but they work for the naked eye.

Bush staff? Na.. Anesthesiologist.



As for Bush losing... Seems that the LA Times, and CNN/Gallop both have Kerry losing right now... and the convention hasn't even started yet.



Better start licking your wounds.



By the way.. I guess that means we'll net more by April than you'll gross all year huh? How does that crow taste boy?

The Zrex works great on the right track (BIR) but on a real tight and very narrow track (Dakota County), its flaws are exposed. Its biggest flaws are; excess weight, budget suspension, too much frame flex and a long wheel base. Even though it has its flaws on the track itÂ’s a great road bike.

I didn't think much of the ZX10 until I tried to pass one at BIR. Super fast and have great lines.

Don't forget a tendency to shake its head when ridden aggresively.
