You make 44 sound old but it is the best time to ride this type of bike!!!!!!!!!!
Guy's in there 20's can't afford it or they think it's too big or something. They'd kill themselves anyway because you need the maturity you have to go with a bike of this caliber, but you're still young enough to have awesome reaction times.

It's the best sport touring bike on the planet, period.... What is the difference from a guy in his 60's purchasing a new corvette than you buying the best motorcycle on the planet? the ZX14 - IT'S JUST A SPORT TOURING BIKE that makes you feel like your 17 again, oh and might I add that it may promote TESTOSTERONE THERAPY to boot. You might just spark things up in the bedroom after each ride :) btw I'm 46

55. Bikes are in my blood. Few aches and pains here and there, oh and a heart attack. First bike - Lime green KH 250 (1978), ridden ever since. Zx12r now, sum up in one word riding her - EPIC !

Footnote : I work as self employed window cleaner and one of my customers in Emsworth, Hampshire who is 84 is often seen out on his Kawasaki KR-1 !. Rock and roll !!!!

New to the page. I am 45, but just bought my 2006 ZX-14 from an 81 year old. It was getting too heavy for him in the garage, and he has traded down to a 750 sport.
