got my new zx6rr on wednesday, put almost 200 miles on it, mostly in the rain. aaaaaRR, i love it. gonna take a hacksaw to it on saturday, though. we'll see how she likes that, ya gotta let em know who's boss, sometimes. though the jap bikes are more ruly and obedient than those haughty italians. gotta get that brake lever so its in the right position, Kawi didn't design it very well. aside from that, its the funnest bike i've ever riden! the gear box is crazy! you fly through the gears like an F1 car, bam bam bam, very close ratio. the note on the exaust is beautiful, too (13.9:1 compression). can't wait to do my 700 mile check up so i can throw some new full-synthetic oil in there and let her rip. only had it up to around 12k so far, she redlines at 16,500!!!!!!!!!! other than that the brakes are amazing, the slipper clutch is a blast, and the handling is the best i've ever felt--although i set the preload on the rear shock to full soft, its still too stiff, probably. very tight suspension. anyway, pics are coming. can't wait to ride with ya'all!
