Kawasaki ZX14..Who haz one??

I rode street bikes in my youth, a 72 Honda CB350, moved to a Kawasaki 400 two smoke in 1974. Traded that for a 1978 Yamaha XS 750 special rode it until 1982 or so.. 1991 or so spent a year or two on dirt bikes and bought a 1975 Kawasaki H2. Sold the dirt toy and the H2 by 93, then nothing until my brother bought a 2005 Kawasaki ZZR 1200. He lives 5 hours away, but I thought it would be fun to ride with him again. The ZX14 was just being introduced, I thought the press pictures showed a rather ugly bike, but I ordered a black one in July, 2006. Last day of July, I took delivery of my new bike. Anyway..

Another view, I had just finished a long winter of mods

Anyone else want to show their ZX14?

That is very interesting, as a KTM 990 SMT is high on my want list. How does the 14 compare with the 990 Duke? Do you ride the 14 anymore?

Oh yes, I remember you from our old ZX14 forum. Love the antifreeze green. The BMW is new is that yours?

Should have never sold it ...

Here is a picture of my '08 special edition. Sometimes my MBS (multiple bike syndrome) gets the best of me. This is one of those times. Wish I never sold that bike.
