My favorite pic of my Daytona:



My other two bikes were my brother's and these are my two favorite pics of them with him (RIP):





I don't really have any good pics of the Ninja 500 hosted where I can get to them at work.

Today I piucked up my new 2012 Kawasaki Ninja 1000 ABS. That's a mouthful. I can sum this bike up as the Stealth Cruise Missile. It is insanely smooth and power is ultra deceptive. Kawi did good on this bike and definitely see why it got MOTY for 2011.

Yea it was funny when I got on one of my favorite long stretch country back roads. I opened her up a little in 6th, maybe 3/4 throttle from 50 mph. I wanted to see what all the "7k buzz" talk was all about. I twist throttle and let it sort of build up to near 7k and the bike talked to me. She said "Hey, we're already hauling *** here but I'm about to reach the hyper-space power sector so pay attention!". I could tell there was a lot of bike up north of 7k! Can't wait until break-in is over so I can see what she was trying to warn me about . Personally I didn't find the bikes "buzz" annoying or intrustive at all. I come from big thumpers and big twins. Had a triple and several inline-4's. I think the "7k buzz" is just the bikes personality letting you know you are in its sweet spot for the transition from short shifter to speed muncher. I dig it's character! Lets me know the bike has a little soul to offer and not a snorefest snooze sewing machine of a bike.

It's in the freaking low 90's today so I'm going to get a ride in after the sun goes down. Check out the lighting and get splattered with lightning bugs on my visor. Trippy effect :)

The obligatory "0 miles" shot at the dealer this morning...

Not my best picture of the Buell, but one of the only.



My old Honda one night when I was playing around with my camera.
