Yup. I can run to about 13,000 and the fuel shuts off at 13,500. From 8,000 up the intake growl just sounds amazing

Orange? If I went and bought an Orange bike today it would be a ZX-10R. It's a WICKED looking bike.

Passing them on a wheelie? LOL. It's certainly not the fastest bike around but it will air out the front tire in 1st and 2nd but it's nothing too blazing fast. It's really good on the Streets. I've ridden a coule 600CC bikes and they seem like you really have to wind the out of them to really get going. This bike is pretty much going from about 2,500 and when it his 7,800-8,000 rpm it wakes up quite a bit more.
ya, I really love my tech specs on the street. They offer the right amount of grip and not too much to where it restricts your movement. I'm able to comfortably keep the pressure steady on the tank with my legs and I'm able to take pressure off the bars. Yes, the orange ZX-10R is a wicked looking bike indeed. I LOVE mine. Oh and I guess I should finish the story, I passed them after wheelie hill @ TWS (Texas World Speedway) Let's trade bikes for a quick ride, I wanna ride that thing

Congrats! I love this bike.
I learned how to scrub them off on the street first but I will agree, the track is the safer place to build your skills

Windfern right off Fallbrook (leading to my house) has a road that's about a mile straight with a SHARP 90 followed by another long strait with another SHARP 90 on it. It's really nice for some good lean...

Just looked at your ZX-10R...MAN! That's a KILLER looking bike.

Yea, the seat looks comfy and the raised clip ons will put you into a comfy position. Only thing I wouldn't like about owning that bike is the lack of fairings.
After riding my bike on a LONG ride in the wind this weekend, I have a new found respect for aerodynamics

Well, it's a really light bike and I just come back from Westhiemer and Kirkwood and it's SUPER windy tonight and I was REALLY wishing for a full faring bike. Getting blown all over the place...but all well.

It's just not a realy areodynamic bike. It's not TOO bad though. That little head unit did a LOT to help.

Yea, when it comes to nekkid bikes, I after the Gen1 Z1000's. Even after owning my 10R for a year and putting 12k miles and 10+ trackdays on it since then, I STILL have a thing for the Z1000, even though I've never ridden one.

I noticed how bad the wind gets to y'all on those bikes, this weekend I rode behind a guy and his jeans will flopping ALL around in the wind, I was wearing similar fitted jeans as well and mine weren't moving at all

Yeah. I have to tuck mine into my boots if I know I'm going to be on the free way as they flap all over the place. There's a certain point that I can get my head down into the visor and I'm pretty much wind free on the upper body but the arms and legs still get a decen amount of it.
