2012 ZX10R

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! 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.
