From the 300, to a ZX6R, and now a ZX10R. I'm back on 2 wheels!
I started out responsible, with a 300 that I put 8000 miles on. I actually ended up selling that bike for over MSRP, it came with full exhaust, tune, and a HID projector retrofit, but in retrospect I am still surprised I sold it for more than the bike cost new by a few hundred.
I took a break for awhile, then ended up picking up a 2013 year old zx6r with 3000 miles for $6000. That bike was great, all I did to it was a corbin seat and a yoshi slip on. I ended up putting 10000~ miles on it or so and then I sold it for $7000.
Towards the end of riding I started actually preparing to motovlog, and while recording I hit a 4x4 fence post on 610 that a truck shot into my lane. That kind of scared me for awhile as I could have easily gone down there. I fixed the fairings, the oil pan, and the bent wheel then I called it a day and sold the bike...hoping to eventually come back to a BMW S1000RR.
Well fast forward to now, and after doing a lot of reading and riding both a s1000rr and a zx10r...the zx10r became an instant winner due to the smoothness, combined with the fact that it has near the same features, and was half the price.
The bike I settled on actually came from a seemingly owner, he had full records of all maintenance, and hundreds in extras he gave me for free when I picked up the bike, he treated it way better than I treated my zx6r lol. It came with quite a few mods, and is making 201 hp to the rear wheel. The power is just stupid, and scary even when doing a pull in the wrong/a high gear. To be honest I don't think I need the 1000 by any stretch of the imagination, I never even went to the track to push the 300 or the 636, but this bike will at least see some fun on 3090 and other twisty routes
went from a 300 > 636 > zx10r - kawasaki makes great motorcycles. it's been 9-10 months since I've been out riding and I'm loving being back on 2 wheels...
going to start motovlogging again too, just waiting on the gopro to come in from ebay! www.youtube.com/phrenetikk if you feel like subscribing for my first video on the zx10

Good choice, the Kawi will bring you a lot more worry-free miles than the BMW as well.
