My new babe........... Sold the gixxer for $4,800 bucks last winter with 12000 miles on the clock! Turned around and bought this for $5,000 (04' Zx-10r w/ only 2,012 miles!) Now I'm a gixxer guy through and through, but I LOVE this bike. I think I may have underestimated Kawasaki............... As a matter of fact, after 2 days of riding this thing, I've decided it may be a bit too much for me. My next bike after this one will definately be a GSXR 750 as I think thnats the perfect mix.
