1 here in Ma! Just put the Roadsmarts on it, what a difference!

Trees are like magnets, if you look at one too hard you'll probably hit it.
I miss my 01, the silver was fastest!
08 Concours....as close to silver as I could get!

I can't figure out the pictures again. It's silver, top case and Cee Baileys euro cut screen.

Smile I'm on board

I got mine last Fall. I have around 3,800 miles on it and think its pretty close to the perfect motorcycle. Not to many issues in the first year other than the header nuts all being loose, the windshield scratching just by looking at it and I'm not to sure about the BT-021s. The rear doesn't look to bad but the front has the strangest wear pattern on it that I have ever seen. As good as it is though I still kept the ZX-12R.

Wind In my hair, Shifting and drifting, Mechanical music, Adrenaline surge...

yo i got one. love it. don't flame me anyone i still kept my 12r.
it is a do all bike. and i bet with all the zx14 stuff flys removed etc 670lbs will still get mid to upper 10s. it is no replacement for the hot rod feeling of the raw not smooth 2000 power delivery. yes it is fast and no it is not a busa.

I got mine in April and only got to put a little over 5000 miles on it. Great bike. Left it pretty much stock except for radar/gps mounts, plastc protection, hugger and slipstreamer windshield. More mods/farkels next year. I kept my 04 ZX-12 too. As fast and smooth as the C-14 is, it is hard to beat the 12 for the excitement factor.

Thumbs up Got mine in 07'

Got mine from Kelly Kawasaki in Mesa, AZ. They were giving great deals on them.
Got the regular brakes.
I have just gone over 16k miles. Do a lot of mountains and canyons.

Because it gets darn hot here in the Phoenix area in the Summertime. I head up the mountains ASAP where it's a bunch cooler.

I have added the following to the bike: Cee Baily's Tall Euro-cut windscreen, Heli bars, Leather Corbin Seat(s), Luggage Bags, Two Brothers Titanium slip-on, Michlen Road2 Dual-compound tires and a removable hard trunk for over-nighters.
The two brother can sounds "meaty"... Nice, I can hear it while riding.
The Mich road2s' are sticky in the turns and give good brake.

Last Summer the KI-PASS would fail when the ambient air temp would hit 100.
They replaced the ignition module. Took them 3 weeks. The shop blamed the delays on the Kaw rep. I was treated badly by Kaw!!

My rear brake locked and I ran up a Jeep Cherokee tailpipe in December.
$2600/ plastic repairs. No structual damage and I was not hurt. Well the R/H peg hit my shin on the way over..NBD!
A month later I get the brake recall in the mail from Kaw.

This is one fast puppy.

You know that it just doesn't get the respect that it should on the street. This bike will eat just about anything out there...But hey, it's not American Steel. Thank God!

Ride-On,
Nulogic

2009 Concours ABS

I've had my Concours just a few weeks now. Long enough to be just under 1000 miles and ready for my 1000 mile dealer checkup. I am hooked on the bikes looks (not too 'touring' and/or heavy looking) and love it without the sidebags ('sport' is in its blood). By the way, its red or burgundy red.
