Attn Kawasaki 10R lovers!!

Very good post Pip!!!

Some of my favorite quotes came from Motor Cyclist May 2004, when they tested the 10R...

"The 10R covers a quater-mile in less time than it takes to read this sentance, and it punishes incompetence, impudence, and stupidity even more quickly. Too much throttle, almost anywhere, and it'll stick you in the ground like a golf tee."

"It's predatory silhouette alone makes small children, domestic pets and impressionable girls hypercentilate. If it lived next door, the ZX-10R would bet heavily on the Oakland Raiders. It would own an overwrought Rottwiler named Cujo and play all 11 Metallica albums every weekend - with the dial cranked up to 11. Your mother wouldn't approve, Your black-sheep uncle doing time for armed robbery would advise against it!"

"The biggest challenge in point-and-shoot land, or anywhere else for that matter, is keeping the front wheel on the ground. Get sloopy with body position or throttle control just for an instant, and you're riding a 162 horse unicycle."

I just love that article....had to read it all over again...
