I just got the bike yesterday and I am loving it. I sold my R6 and was afraid that the handling was going to be an issue but I was wrong it handles great!!! If its in your list GET IT!!! Here are some pics.

Looks great man! I really want one of the silver ones, but I'm afraid my license would be gone, and I would probably have some steel bracelets applied at some point, if I decided to get one. Cool bike!

Nice ride. I admire a guy that has enough restraint to own such a bike and not act a fool. I, on the other hand, am such a fool. Not stunts mind you, but with the roads I travel I cruise @ 85 already and my K bike is 21 yo. If I had a modern bike my license would be suspended yesterday- maybe even the day before yesterday. As a matter of fact, doesn't every Open Class GT bike come with a disclaimer that states "We would like to congradulate you on your new purchase. You're local law enforement agency will be sure to introduce themselves to you at their earliest convenience."

Nice bike. Congrats. Do you have to count down from 10 every morning before you launch out of the garage?
He only get an 8 count. Seems it has a time space distortion situation and time speeds up on him.

What's even more amazing is that you have a garage you can actually park vehicles in. Wow, unheard of 'round these parts...

Depends on viewpoint. Time will slow down for the operator. For the outside observer the bike will simply disappear into a space-time distortion informally called a wormhole. In rare cases the bike will appear to cease moving to the outside observer as it approaches the event horizon of the singularity created at launch.

Just remember the theory of relativity - the faster you go the more you can treat everything else as stationary.

My uncle lives by that rule, it's scary.

Thanks guys. I think I'm going to park it in this forum for a while since the R6 forum has discarded me. lol j/k. You guys have a great sense of humor and your right I live in the Orlando area. It has 60 miles now and I try to keep it at speed limit. I'm not thinking of changing the color. The flat black was very appealing to me and was one of the reasons I got the special edition. I will be doing some upgrades to her but not until she is well broken in. Thanks for the warm welcome and Happy Holidays to all.

I could see having a ZX14 in west Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Wyoming, Nevada, etc. But Florida? How do you get out of first gear?

Seru, you've apparently never been on the "Florida Turnpike."

It's right behind I-95 as one of the quicker sections of pavement.

I-4 on the other hand is walking speed, if you're on it outside of rush hours-and-hours.

I'll be up in Cocoa Beach the week of the 24th through the 31st. Drop me a PM if you want to whip that bike over to the beach and hook up for a ride. I'm sure the DL1K can at least keep you in sight....or not... :D

I was just looking at the maps of the US and I figured that a ZX14 would be halfway across Florida by the time it pegged it in top gear.

Maybe if an anti-bluehair cowcatcher were installed....
