    My new "bike"....it's fast!!!

    Just picked this one up today. Traded in my 2007 Ninja 600.




    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    600 to ZX-14?! I think "it's fast" is an understatement, there...

    Very nice!

    Bruce, I'm not listening if you start offering me bike parts again to pay for this one.

    That's a lot of bike.
    Need a ride report after you've got a couple weeks on it.

    How's it handle, LowCel? Always been curious about the long-wheelbase bikes like the Hayabusa.

    Thanks everyone, appreciate the compliments.

    Crankshaft and msincredible, it actually handles a lot better than I expected. Obviously I can't throw it around like I could my 600 but it still handles pretty well. I've only ridden it about an hour so far so I haven't had time to get used to it or to even come close to it's limits. To be honest, I don't plan on ever getting it close to it's limits. This thing is way too powerful for that and I have way too much to live for.

    I do know that I shifted to second at around 95 mph yesterday. I could have went over 100 before I shifted but the bike is still new, I need to take it a little easy on it during the break in period.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    95 in first gear? I know without a doubt that that is one fast bike, but I'm not sure I'll buy 95 in first gear!

    Take a look HERE. Are you guys in the motorcycle circles familiar with this theory? Some people say the same is true for cars, so I was curious.

    You don't have to buy it, I'm okay with that. I'm not willing to take a picture while I'm doing close to 100 mph to prove it. As for one fast bike, that is an understatement. It and the hayabusa are the fastest (factory) bikes there are. Which is fastest is debatable. From the factory it does 9 second quarter miles and 0-60 in 2.5 seconds.
