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?
