you're a kickass photog, Southwade.

I love that color. I really like the earlier candy blue plasma that Kaw did on some bikes, but yours is growing on me.

Thank you, self taught.

I didn't like the plasma blue until I saw it in person in the sunlight. Kawi's candy paint loves the sunlight.

The only pipe I've seen so far that matches the style of the bike is Urban Brawlers. If I changed the exhaust at all I'd do a full system. I don't care for slip-ons.

Last photo shoot before she goes away for the winter. My '04 Zed. God I love this bike!!





Yep, she corners nice. This was just messing around on a favorite little twisty right around the corner from my house.


And, anyone who knows the rough summer her and I have had will get a kick out of this one.

I live in Wisconsin. We have this white nasty stuff called snow. Ginger doesn't like snow. Her traction coefficient is greatly diminished during said nasty time.

That, and it just gets miserably cold, and my car has heated seats.

If I still lived in NC, I'd still be riding year-round.

I haven't seen snow in ages...

I figured you lived near the Great Lakes bases on the way the scenery looks. Looks cold even in the pictures.

I'm not, but I can say this, if the 2012 ZRX was sold in the states, I would have probably bought that instead. I love how beautifully ugly it is.

Yea, I wish it was sold here too. I have a '03 ZRX but I am liking the Z1000.
