Thinking of putting nitrous on the Handivan Town & Country. Gotta get my kicks somehow...
Wouldn't it be more fun by fitting the chair with with a 250cc motor? I bet you could get the f***king thing up to 70.

At least it's good to know the cops have eliminated all other crimes in the LA area, so they can now go after anarchists in wheelchairs! Keep hoiking 'em, Cuddy!

Common, there must be something you don't like about this bike. I haven't see anything really bad you said about this bike. Don't make me dish out $10 grand for a 600 while an 08ZX10R or 07R1 are cheaper and the 08cbr1000rr cost just a few hundreds more.

First off, we don't compare old bikes to new bikes. There is too much variance in how much a used bike costs, plus we don't have friendly people giving us free use of their pre-owned machine. And we usually compare bikes of the same class.

As for what's not good on the ZX, here's my list after some more miles:
- Not terribly comfortable
- Minimal wind protection
- No adjustable footpegs

Yes, the Ninja is that good. Wait till you see what it does on the dyno against the other '09 600s.
