Well, jeez, with all that take home loot you should be able to afford that Speed Triple.

Default Playin' house?

I don't really want a speed triple. I can see a XX... but how much of an improvement is the XX really over what I have? I love my bike. I figure if I'm gonna buy another bike, I should buy something that is meant for a different type of riding... I almost picked up a VTX 1800c a month back... maybe a full tourer... but a chrome tourer or a wing/bmw? I can't decide...

One bit of surge and your gone forever eh? I cant stand the new tiger, the generation before was sexy though.

You need to test ride the KTM 950, I'm still grinning from a ride 3 months ago...

I'd agree that the ZX9 is equal or superior to a VFR in every way. The only exception is the integrated hard bag option for a VFR.

just one last thing about this. That fairing looks pretty good to me compared to the similar one on the FZ6, a bike which seems a bit busy and overstyled to me. I do like the naked Z750 better for looks. But this fairing at least keeps it simple and tries to pick up the lines of the rest of the bike harmoniously, without extra bulges or colors. It isn't a sportbike, more like an update of the bandit S UJM, and that worked for a lot of riders. I think Kawasaki is going out on a limb to give real-world riders a practical, tasteful alternative with a big bike soul, and they ought to be commended for it.

So, are you saying you paid attention in English class?



"ZX600s can be beaten by almost any motorcycle."



This sentence is an example of proper English?

I don't get it. What could possibly be better than Elisha Cuthbert in assless chaps? Or is that the point?
