    I started out with a Kawasaki 90cc in 1970, then a 350 triple. Took 36 years off (cars were the reason) Then bought a 2006 ZZR600 to start riding again in 2006 which I put 10K on it then sold it.

    Currently in my garage is a 2006 ZX14, a 2009 KLR, a 2013 C14 and a new 2018 Z900RS. BTW: Nice pictures throughout this thread, really enjoyed looking at all of the Kawasaki's.

    As one of my Kawasaki's sits right now.
    New top end but, stopped just short of adding gas and start kicking.
    Winter came in hard, fast, and here to stay.

    A friend of mine's son stopped by to help put my Versys back together one day (he's actually an engineer :lol3)

    The Z was a cool looking bike but just poorly designed. Seat was horrible, a piece of cardboard would be an upgrade. The lack of wind protection was just dangerous. It felt like I was wearing a parachute at higher speeds. I'm planning on keeping the KLR for awhile!

    I've got 2 Kawasaki projects right now.
    First is a 2003 ZZR-600. It was sitting for 8 years and I've now got it cranking up and running great. After some fork and brake rebuilds this bike is basically done except for appearance.

    The other is a 1996 ZX-6R. It was sitting for 2ish years and has some issues. I need to get some brake master cylinders, and sort out an electrical issue causing no power to the fuel pump and no spark... Cranks when I jump the solenoid so I'm thinking it's a kill switch problem. Also need to sort out that hideous headlight and it's missing gauges...

    A few months ago, day one of Trixie's new Z650...

    Winter set in here so hard soon after buying it that we've only managed 300 miles on it so far, only about 60 by her.

    It's not quite as snappy as her old bike....

    ...but it'll serve us well as her commuter and casual day-tripper starting this spring.

    Nice set up @Backlund! It appeared Trixie might be a new rider, and then BAM! Not so.

    No, we think her new 650 is something like her 25th motorcycle since about 1980. Her other current ride is a 2015 BMW R1200R that she traded her Hayabusa in on several years ago.
    IMG_20171130_120902.jpg

    She also recently had a Harley Softail Deluxe, which she sold last fall to another woman, and a 300 Ninja for a short time, that she traded in to get the Z650...

    It's 'complicated'.

    As long as this is a Kawasaki thread, I dug out an old photo of her with her, then new, 1987 Ninja 750...

    And...here she is, about five years ago, trying out the 2007 ZX14 I owned then...
    IMG_20190223_082233245~2.jpg

    And then my 2006 Vulcan VN2000 cruiser (she didn't like it very much)...
