I would give you props for this, longride, but seriously, kpaul just makes it too damn easy. It's gotten to the point that I'm starting to feel sorry for him.

Jesus Christ, is this your latest chew-toy now?



You will follow through on this just like you followed through on track school, biodiesel, and Chocolate Thunder.



You're a fundamentally unserious person, which is why, shockingly, that no one takes you seriously.



Except acecycleins, of course, who may be out getting his button eye sewn back on.

No need for sympathy schizuki. I am postive longride would of hit it the branch too. Actually the Insurance guy who rides knows the road I was on said he understood how it could happen (shyt happens) . It is highly likely longweseal would have hit the branch head on (I thought that might be an option also) and flipped over the bike.. ala MotoGp style... I think the branch was a little to big to jump over or hit straight on...

You mean I would 'have' hit the branch? You should bet your brains on that one. You wouldn't lose much.

"Awesome.. good job Kawasaki!... That is the way you create engineering excellence by pushing the envelope.."



Because really, the 170-mph envelope was just too damn constricting.



Now for the next engineering masterpiece, how about a 600 that makes 150 horsepower at 21,000 rpm? Should be equally useful on the street.



Meanwhile, dumb ol' Harley continues to make old-tech bikes who only feature seems to be that people who ride them really seem to be enjoying it, and ride them a lot. Yawn, huh?

I'm about 100% sure you could beat him while sitting on the bike backwards.

Too bad the bike is so fugly. I had a ZX-11, never should have sold it. Hey Kawi- lose the Matrix Sentinel front end on the ZX-14 and the 1980's side panels. Check your museum for the '93 ZX-11 for what a good looking GT can look like.



Nice it went so freaking fast tho....
