Another New Old Guy!
Hello Forum Members! I've had my '08 for a couple of years now and just found this forum. Looks pretty lively here! I'll get the avatar and signature pics going later. I've been riding since 1970 (55y.o.) and have had over twenty-five bikes in that time. I've been stuck on sport bikes forever and have never owned a cruiser. I am getting a KLX250S so I can ride it off-road a little and in the Chicago winter (like snow riding). The ZX14 is the best bike I've ever owned. I will never need more power, the build quality is great and the ease of maintaining it makes it a breeze. I am very disappointed in not being able to ride as much as I'd like because of work but am committed this year to but on at least 5k miles. I used to sell and work on bikes back in the day and am looking forward to hanging out here!

And the ZX14 family gets 1 bigger....we need lots more to join up...gets a little stale just praising a 12R all the time...
I can relate to the time constraints for riding. I had to cut my season short by 3 months last season due to medical issues...but am all better now and itching like hell to get out on 2 wheels as soon as possible!

I'm an old guy also, 61 and I just bought a new 2012 ZX-14R. Doing the standard mods, steering stabilizer, Brock's Ti pipe(< 9lbs!!), Power Commander V, Ohlins forks and rear shock, brake lines, Brembo master cylinder, raised the clipons 1.5" with LSI hardware, and just ordered Corbin peg lowering kit.
I get to ride most of the year here in Texas and this bike is absolutely, insanely fast and I am having a ball with it. I'm going to try a track day and see if I like doing track riding.
I am pretty new here also, but it seems like a great group and I have learned a lot about the bike and options by reading everything I can.
