    After selling my KTM950 Adv I got ZX14. We went on 1k miles trip last weekend to Death Valley.
    I will post my ZX riding impressions in Roadworrior section.

    Here are all the pics:

    Looks like a great report.. any way to post those pics bigger without having to click on each one? You might want to get yourself a smug account which supports this site and works very well...

    Thanks for posting :thumb

    You might click on the first link and do a slideshow. I will look in to other hosting services but I have a few K PIC's on Webshots.
