First of all i am not going to get into the stupid "my bike is great yours is crap stuff". i can only speak from my own opinions on the CBR 1000 F that i own and have ridden for many wonderful miles. as far as quality goes it is a honda, it in my opinion is of the highest quality. dependable? if a honda will not start it is out of gas. speaking of out of gas, it does enjoy drinking gas but it has never been a problem for me. smoooooooth comfortable, and fast, yes fast. no, it is not gsxr 1000 etc. fast, but it is as fast as is usable in sane street conditions. it is one of several sport bikes i have to ride and is the one i always go to. i do however have a new RC-51 due to arrive soon. i do not know if i will sell the CBR but if i want to my riding buddy has already said he will take it. YOU are all about to ask "if the CBR is so great why an RC-51?????????????? well i have been fighting the urge to get one for a while, but i am a weak weak man and i must do what i must do. if you want a bike to go out and get stupid on do not get a CBR 1000, if you want to go out and really ride, for as long and far as you want, DO, BY ALL MEANS get one, as far as the kawasaki, never ridden one, do not know if it is better or not.
by the way the only thing i have used the tool kit for is to occasionaly adjust chain, and to loan tools to others.
