Z1000

I bought it two weeks ago, it was used but only had 134 miles on it. Right now I've got 607.

I love this bike, I already bought a K&N air filter for it.

It's nice.

I actually like the look. It's DIFFERENT.

Nice Bike 94GTVert!

Those euro-style nakeds/streetfighters always look like they need something to deflect rocks/spray under the engine though.

Nice riding buddy too I love that little 650.

I've always liked the z1000...especially the pipes. I'm not a fan of the new one though.

The euro version of the Ninja 650- the ER6n has the same look. The under-engine exhaust without the fairing just doesn't look as cool.
