Dude, looks GOOD. Thought that bike was done, based on the original pics, when they were posted back when...

Clocked almost 181 on GPS with a small rider on it in 2017. One thing I have found is that Kawasaki didn't leave TOO much on the table with this platform. It was hard work to eek out just a little.

Looking to push the envelope with some experimental and secret stuff in 2018.

I'm supposed to keep putting cocoa butter on certain parts but I'm not as good about it as I should be. Just mainly keep trying to make sure my hand keeps the range it has the strength it needs and ignore hip pains. Skin has finally become essentially a non-issue.
Glad to hear that you are doing good.

Allegedly I had promised my parents after much goading in the ER...nevermind the fact that I was on fentanyl

I really thought about giving it up...but you know how it goes. Let me see if I can push one. Let me see if I can sit on one. Let me see if I can tuck. Let me see if I can hold the throttle without it snapping shut due to lack of grip strength. I guess both the bike and I have come a long way.

A little more to go on the 636...and then its back to the ZX12.

I have a feeling many Busas/14s/10s/1000s will be crying. I guess there's always the H2
