I'm new to this site, but I'm not a new rider. I have been at it since 1991. I started on a Honda 1991 600 F2, then I came to my senses and got my first Kawai a 1996 ZX-11 (ZZR-1100 in Japan where I got it...great bike!) then I lost my senses for another 4 year period and got a 1999 Blackbird CBR1100XX. Ok, now I'm back and I picked up my 2003 ZX-12r about 8 months ago. I don't think I'm ever leaving Kawai again! I love this machine. Check 'em out below.
