I started by buying a ZX6r, a good bike but not my real target. This is my wife and I going out on the ZX6. It was a great bike but it was always only an interim bike until I could locate a ZZR.I had owned one in the UK and had covered 60,000 trouble free miles in all weathers both there and Europe. I have been riding bikes since the mid 70's and have had many great bikes but I am a Kawasaki man and, for me, the ZZR is the greatest bike. So then began the search!
