To be honest ,I don't ride it much anymore. I love the huge power but,Traffic inforcement has become huge up here to where they take your bike away for going 40kph over, so i am enjoying the Ktm's more than ever.

The superduke i a very FUN bike to ride,it steers very quickly,and has very good drive out of tight corners. And the Adventurer is really the swiss army knife of bikes. It handles in the corners way better than it should and when the pavement ends you can keep going.

I knew the wheels on the 14 were stock from the build report you did on the Zx14 forum. But I cannot BELIEVE I fell for the BMW roundel on the KLR. I also have a 09 KLR with a BMW-ESQUE roundel!

Wait I missed something. You do have the primo wheels? I know they make the bike handle better because of the lighter weight. I stand corrected

Sorry my bad!. I remember when he did the original build and posted pics of the stock wheels painted the same way. Did not look for the Marchesini decal

I wanted so bad to get a plate that said 185EZ or maybe L8APEX. Decided it would be a bad idea to give yon pissed off soccer mom something easy to remember while she drives her SUV with her knee and calls the cops, all in the name of public safety.

Fuck that. I'd be tempted to try it on my GS, but no way in hell on my ZX.

Gotta love salesmen with ethics. I'd love to "punk" one of these salesmen and have someone go into the showroom pretending to be an irate widow.

If a new rider insists on getting a bike like a ZX-14 and the salesperson gives him fair warning that's one thing. But, a salesperson that actually encourages a new rider to get one is the worst kind of douchebag.

Ya, that's ridiculous. I've been riding forever and this 14 scares the poop out of me sometimes. Jeez, a kid I used to work with bought a Triumph 600 (pre 650 and 675 days) for his first bike and managed to about pop his noggin looping it in first gear. I told him if he was any smarter he probably wouldn't have lived. And the salesman tried to talk him into a 955i at the time.
