    Looking around for an additional ride

    I have the itch again for something different. Well not really different because I have owned both before. Either a 2003 Honda XX Blackbird or a 2012 Kawasaki ZX14R. Had both a XX and two ZX14's and both were excellent bikes. A lot older in the tooth now so no pure sport bikes for me. Going to keep the 2015 K1300HP, can't part with that one.

        I may be thinking something smaller and lighter like the Wee Strom next.
        This shoulder has made it difficult to move the bike around. Riding it is not
        a problem though.

        You'll have to start thinking about where you are going to park it in advance and minimize the <<moving it around<< part of the equation...I think you would miss the GSHey if you got the Wee.(not that there is anything wrong with a wee...)

        You’re not prejudiced or anything, are you?

        I haven't ridden any other similar bikes. Can only say it's a blast. But it's definitely not for all day riding. Rider magazine has an article this month about the Ninja 1000sx. Now that looks like an awesome sporty touring bike. Visually it looks a bit like a k13s. Has all the current high tech electronics. Anyone ridden one?

      Well could not find a good used 2003 Honda BB so I am buying a used 2012 Kawasaki ZX12R with 8,400 miles today.

        That's a beauty. Always like black and gold combo. Had a Norton Commando in that color scheme.

        Pretty but the swing arm looks primitive or home made...IMHO

      Found and bought a 2012 ZX14R. Owned by a old guy like me with 8410 miles and in perfect condition. He was the the original owner and just as anal as I am about his bike. All the origin parts replaced were carefully wrapped and stored and came with the bike. I will take pictures and post when I figure out how on this site.

      Nice ZX12R. I had the first year and had a ball with this bike.
