I have returned after 5 years
I am now 56 and sold my Kawaski zx9r to my son who dumpded it in front of me at 65 mph and no serious injury, the bike was totaled. I have a 2002 Kawaski ZX12R with a Heli bars, Corbun seat, power commander 3, theft alarm and a full Titiaum exhaust from the motor to the tip and high output headlights. I just took the bike out a week ago and love it. I bought the bike two years ago from a man in his fifties who kept it in top shape for $6,600. He would not let me ride the bike until he was holding all the money which I don,t blame him I guess. I always sell my bikes on consignment through a dealer which cost 10% however it is worth it. I plan on getting a 2008 Harley Road King Police Special this November, however the Zx12R is staying as they are two different types of machines and I will never not have a sport bike. I am getting the Harley for $15,000 and it will have less then 2000 miles on it. It is for hauling the wife around as I removed the rear pegs on the 12R as it is really not meant for two riders.
