Looking forward to seeing the secret operation. I heard rumors of how expensive it is to own and insure a motorcycle in Canada. My friend lives in Ontario and had to pay 3500 a year in insurance on a bike he paid 4000 for, and had a clean record. That was before they removed him because they found out he was under 25 and they didn't want to insure anyone his age.
My friend moved to BC and it's much worse than in QC, especially insurance. Here its the supersport bikes that cost alot. 1500$ for the registration PER year + insurance. For a regular 400cc+ bike that's not deemed ''at risk'', it's 660$ per year + insurance.
My 919, fully insured, both sides is around 200$ per year. So having a one standard motorcycle in quebec is sub 1k per year. Still expensive, but not eye bursting.
Love the ZRX, one of my favorites.
Can’t wait to see what you do with the 9er!
Thank you ! REX'es are very cool, love the square headlight.
Some very nice work you've done.
Looking forward to what you scope out and execute on the 919.
Nice build sheet and story line pictures on the Z forum you linked us to.
Love those 1200s, truly a classic.
One of my best friends has a Green one.
I tried it out before choosing the 919 over one like his.
Thank you ! I picked it so I could ride with my dad but he changed his mind on riding, that's why I am selling it. The instant I got on the 919, I felt at home. Felt more comfortable on that bike 5 minutes in than 3 years on the rex !
Your ZRX looks great.
You've done some great work.
I agree entirely regarding cars and rust. Too much bodywork for my liking. I too prefer wrenching on bikes than sanding for hours.
And your just teasing us with your secret 919 operation.
It's unfortunate because I really like cars too, but everything on a bike is smaller and cheaper. Plus there is hardly any rust, ever !
welcome, very nice to see that you have a penchant for logging all your work; that's much apprieciated.
Looking to see how your 9er project will turn into.
Thanks ! I use them when I apply for internships, that's why I take such care to make them, plus it helps others in the process ! Win-Win
I almost went with the ZRX instead of the 919, but they're both hard to find and the 919 came up after I nearly gave up trying to find one.
Awesome job on the ZRX and the 919 looks super clean. Plenty of people mod them, but I think they look awesome in stock condition.
Yeah, both bikes look fantastic bone stock, that's why I wanted to keep the Rex looking stockish, I call it OEM+
