As long as “effective traction” is maintained, the TC will still allow power slides and wheelies.

Kawasaki Canada had the new ZX10 (green/black) and the ZX1000 Ninja (black/red) for show last night at our local shop. They were pretty cool. A number of guys from the shop and the Kawasaki rep who I know have taken them for spins and the reviews are positive. Prices were a little high though. Also, the 1000 Ninja was a little too upright for me. It actually felt similar to my 919. I expected it to be closer to VFR800 ergos. Slick looking though.

They'll be $7999.00 + tax just like the 08-09's ended up being. My 08 listed at over 12k. I didnt pay anywhere near that.

That'll work........

That's what's messed up. The Canadian dollar is close to par with the US dollar, yet the list for the new ZX10 is $16,000+!!

They are still milking the old days hoping the you canucks dont know any better.....Best way to fix that problem is quit letting go of the cash until they bring things into line.

That'll work........

Come over here and buy it. We are open for business!

By the way, what's up with the name Ottawa? It sounds like a little kid mispronouncing Otter or something.
Seriously, despite the piss poor US economic sitch, we really are open for your buying pleasure. Stop in anytime and don't forget to tip your server.

Don't forget to add in that the name is native in origin, as is Toronto. We didn't call it or change it to Macdonald. Can't remember what the naming origin of Quebec City is.
