1995 GPZ1100 (ZX11E). Just picked it up Wednesday and put over 500 miles on her this weekend. A really sweet running machine and awesome in the twisties. Not a sport bike, a sport-tourer. More comfortable than a sport machine, but not quite as comfortable as a full-on touring bike.

John, nice to hear from you. I like the bike so far. It has 130 hp so it's stupid-fast --- have to be very judicous with the throttle.Legal speeds are far exceeded with just aslight bit of inattention;). I'll have to be careful.



It came with a full Micron stainless/carbon exhaust system, K&M cone filters, cartridge emulators, re-jetted carbs, and a Works rear shock.A lot for my money. I'll know if I really like the bike by the time the wheels cross the garage threshold in New Mexico.



So far I like it a lot.

Nice! From what I've seen from the view from behind you, it's probably well suited to your riding style. ;) 130hp with that little weight has got to be a trip. Enjoy and ride safe. :action:

Remember, First and Second gears get you the ticket.

Third through sixth determine how many days in jail...

That is super cool, and looks like a LOT of fun. Careful, Mate.

No tickets yet, crossing my fingers. I see that you're enjoying your new V-Strom.



I think my V-Strom is still my favorite bike, but the ZX11 sure will fill my need for speed, acceleration, andcertainly has an edge in the twisties. It will be my Sunday ride if I keep it.
