Forget Hawaii I want another bike!

I can always go to Hawaii next summer right? We got Bubby a Speed Triple a few months ago now I want another bike. No more track/racing for me just good old street fun. Now I gotta find a bike. No good Honda's out there so maybe a Kawi!

I saw a 250r Repsol and loved it. I really liked my Kawi 250 race bike.

I am 5'5 so height is always an issue for me. My hubby's 05 636 was way to tall and so is his Speed triple. I usually ride Honda's for the narrow frames. The newer Kawi's are a little more narrow than the older ones.

Backwards, Why no more track? Makes you a better rider and is safer than public roads.

Because I rode track/raced/instructed for years but due to an injury that will not let me ride as aggressive as I once could I gave it up. I was very frustrated that I could no longer ride as hard as I used to, plus we sold all our race bikes to purchase our son his truck. I miss riding.

The ZX6 would probably be right for you, I have another friend that is, uh, slightly challenged in the height department ( and not nearly as talented a rider ) and he does fine.

Did y'all look at my S3 last year when it was for sale? Had a couple who did track stuff that was looking for a street bike.

Congrats on your husband's S3! I miss mine.

Yep, that was us! He went back and forth between a few bikes but always went back to S3. He loves it
