I finally got my motorcycle license endorsement last year
and after demoing several bikes (from several genres),
I am now bent on getting a 3rd generation Kawasaki Z1000
(or its sibling with fairings, the Ninja 1000).
I initially joined this forum to respond to a great thread I came across
entitled - "2011 z1000, first 1100 miles, impressions and pics!"
That is one hell of a first bike. Appreciate the power that thing gives out, because there isn't much out there that will have more than what that bike has. Wouldn't want you to get bored of it now! Z1000's are great bikes, I hope you enjoy it, beautiful beautiful machines.
