Should be a hoot that thing... who's demo might that be if you don't mind me asking?
The three things you need to fix anything in the universe: duct tape, WD-40 and a hammer.  If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape.  If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40.  Otherwise use the hammer.

So. What bike is that? Kawasakai what-what? :redface:

Must be cool to get the oppotunity to ride different bikes.

It's the new Z1000 JMan...  and yes, it is awesome to ride different bikes  ;D

The punishment is going quite well, even managed a stint on a dirt road today. ;D ;D

I can now understand how these sooperbark okes get into so much kark, this thing hauls ass! But no fairing or screen doesn'tr help matters, anything over 180 and you start looking like a knuckledragger from the USA backwaters... ;D ;D
I am doing a tar road ride in the morning with some of my 'unreformed' mates who don't own D/S bikes.

First the ride report for Biker Lifestyle, then the WD one. Tonight I am tired, 300km on that machine is like 800 on my GSA! ;D ;D Although it is a whole lot quicker. 115 in 1st, 155 in 2nd, 185 in 3rd......
