Hi Eric,

I love the black -blue ZRX! Great bike :drool:

My plan for spring is to either get a ZRX like yours or a GSX1400!

Hi..

Dont forget to look at the new '02 ZZR1200... it should give the ZRX a run for it's money... :)

Personally, the ZRX does not have enough wind protection for those long highways trips, i am looking for a nice hwy cruiser.. I am leaning towards the BMW K1200rs and will keep the ZRX for around town and short trips... Best of both worlds in my opinion..

Naked BMW?

I like the ZRX because it's naked.
For the same reason I don't like the ZZR12 or the BMW K1200.
My memories from riding a 1993 ZZR1100 are still strong though...
Up to 280 km/h in no time, crazy times :rolleyes:
Of course I realize they are great bikes but I don't like the looks.

And since you mentioned BMWs, I take the opportunity to talk about my R75.
Here's apicture of my 1975 BMW R75/6. It was considered as a superbike in the 70s! It's not fast, doesn't have decent brakes etc but it rides smoothly and my girlfirend loves it because she has time to look around and enjoy the scenery! Plus it's got the best passenger seat I ve seen!
It was a police bike a long time ago and then belonged to my late father. I'm trying to keep it in top condition as best as possible. Latest additions include new silencers and reconditioned seat.

It's naked so it fits here ! ;)
