Kawasaki ZZR 1100

Brought the Kawasaki ZZR 1100 about 9 months ago, from a dealer. Its second hand and over 10 years old, it had never been dropped and had a few scratches in the fairing and got it for a good price. It loves eating tyres as I tried a soft compound Bridgestone Tyre on the rear and got about 6000 klms. I have changed the tyres to Dunlop GPR 100 sports touring tyres and running nitrogen in the tyres. Apart from that I spent very much on the mechanical and the bike is very reliable. The bike is powerful and yet controllable and is quite a heavy bike. I going to have the repainted back in it's original colour plum and going to fit a flip screen to the bike. I have done just over 9000 klms in the just nine months and really love the bike. It has been fifteen years since owning my last bike and fell in love the ZZR1100 after I took it for a test ride. It is one of the best bikes I have either owned. The mirrors are better than most and I got the seat reupholstered to make it more comfortable. Fuel consumption not bad for the beast, compared to power weight ratio of the bike. The bike handles quite well on Australian roads
