Whats up FL, I just left Crestview. Handling is about the same on my old zx-11. Not really made for super twisties, but you can definetly lean it pretty good. The bike has evil pwr, I rode one with a jet kit dual, slip-ons and for some reason the guy dropped a tooth in th front, and added 2 in the rear, it was also lowered, the fairing might have been 2 inches off the ground. pwr wheelies through 4 gear. Pretty comfortable riding, not as good as my zx-9 but close. Another guy there has a turbo busa, didn't even want to touch that one. Food for thought, Forte cycle has an unrestricted 2000 zx-12 that are faster. He wants like 10500 for it out the door I believe,you should ck it out. And it's very comfortable. 862-6815

Ask for steve and tell him Shannon told you to call. If your military he'll be extra nice, he's an retired master.

Also if you are going to finance, most if not all banks require you to come up with 10% down on your loan. He has a way to bypass that, just ask. Also kawi's when you fianance through them don't require you to have insurance. Thats a big plus or minus depending all on you.
Hope I helped some
I miss Florida if you can't tell

The rear seat and grab rail are stock and the first thing I removed from the bike. The lines are better with the solo seat cover. The bike handles real well for the size and weight but it dose not like tight corners. A 1/4 mile is its favorite place unless you live in Utah and have access to the flats. As far as long distance riding this is a great bike. I have not yet had a problem with it with eight hours rides with a average of 45 miles per gallon at a cruising speed of around 80mph.
