My other Kawasaki muscle bike
« on: June 15, 2011, 04:11:15 pm »
I bought this bike brand new, decided then and there that I'd keep it forever... so far, so good! It was Bike of the Month on the kz1000r.com website for July last year. Here's a link for some photo's and the story. http://www.kz1000r.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=55&Itemid=79

Your bike was what I had in mind when I redid my KZ550A.
