    lots of work ahead of you... good luck mark..

    I'm listing the zx tonight on cl and see if I get a bite. went and sat on a z1000 and I think the lack of fairings will be a deal breaker for me in the cold weather. sat on a ninja1000 as well and think it'll be my next bike. sportbike look but don't have to lean over the tank to ride it like the zx 6/10 and same engine as the z1000. several dealers have sweet deals on '11 holdovers.

    hope someone will brave the snow to look at my machine

    Mark looks like you're having fun. If I can convince my wife to park out side over the summer I will be starting a cafe racer project. Keep us updated on progress. Can't wait to see how it turns out.

    Sandm good luck with the sale. Ninja1000 will be a fun bike.

    I've been seeing the Ninja 1000 some lately and it looks like a great bike.

    nice looking project Mark.

    well, 2 guys came from about 120 miles away last night to pickup the zx6. sending to a 19y.o. daughter in the military in south carolina. I hope she's ready for it not sure why they are shipping mine but they had cash so I really don't care..

    now in the market for a new machine. going to make a few calls tomorrow on a couple '13 leftover ninja1000's here in the valley. I think it'll be a good bike for daytrips. target price is 9200 or less otd so we'll see how it goes.. I get within a few hundred of that price I'll call it a win. hoping cash/no trade work in my favor but I did have several dealers wanting the zx in a bad way as a trade and I know they make more cash on a finance contract than straight up otd money. it's still early here for bike sales with feet of snow on the ground and sleds still dominating the showroom.

    I like them both too, although I have never been able to get used to the assymetric design on teh 1000R, esp the headlights. I know looks aren't everything, but I still have to look at it. lol If you're seriously considering DualSport tho, check out KTM. Still pricey but cheaper than BMW and quite a variety.
