This is a great site, glad to be on here.

I ride a 2002 Kawasaki ZRX1200R that I bought new, literally still in the box in February 2002. There are two great things about having a brother 5 years older than you, when you are 10 and get in a fight at school you realize getting hit by a 10 year old kid is no big deal compared to you're brother and his friends hitting you, which makes you're friends think you are tough, the other great thing is that I got to do things way before I was old enough, like riding his motorcycle, so I have gone from riding his early 80's Honda CR80 to almost 30 years later riding a ZRX1200R with a few bikes in between. Most of the bike's I have owned were nothing special except to me, like a XR70 that vibrated so much it blistered both of my hands so badly I could not write, although I still rode the next day (with gloves), I had a KE 100 that had a bent fork, the bars actually turned to the left several inches when you were going straight, a KLX250 that everything seemed to break at once, but thankfully I can't complain about anything on my ZRX, everything just works like it is supposed to, anyway this really is a great site.

Ahhh, I so envy you owing the ZRX1200R... that's one of the bikes that has always been on my short list. How is the performance and handling of it?

Sounds like you have a lot of background knowledge, experience and good little pearls of wisdom to share, I look forward to reading more!

:welcome2:

Mike

Thank you, I love my ZRX, the performance is great especially the torque, it has low RPM torque similar to a big V-twin, but revs like a inline four. The handling is of course heavier than a lightweight 600, but it's pretty good, (great if you have never ridden a 600), but I love riding it in the mountains. I don't know how much wisdom I have to share, but I have been around motorcycles my entire life, which is weird because my dad hates them, but my Grandfather, brother, cousin (who I taught) and uncle have ridden for years.
