But at least you have a sense of humour buddy - few too many takin things to heart or not takin enough rides around here lately. Or maybe not enough shed time.

X10 Nev? Cool at last - geez that took a long time. Flog it and get a GPZ900 - worth keeping.

Hi Davo,

Why flog it when you plan on having both?

I've always loved the old ZX10 and when this one came up, I jumped at it.

It might not be everyone's favourite bike of the 80's but that can sometimes be a good thing.

I had my red & black '88 model for 13 years. only had 6k on it when I bought it in Dec '92. Had 2 GPZ900 before. The ZX10 was a better bike in every respect on the road. One of the "should of kept it" bikes

I'm really impressed with it so far, DD. It will easily scare you with the power delivery or happily cruise along at 50 in top gear. Its smooth and stable and just fun to ride, I like it.

Pretty hard to fault the ZX10. Well done Nev .

I had one and it was/is probably the most comfortable and one of the most powerful bikes I've ever had Handled like a dream too

I very nearly bought an immaculate import several years ago, was going to fly to Sydney to ride it back but ummed and arghed for too long and it went ...

Tomorrow will be 1 of the hardest days in my life. Am making a mercy dash to Brisbane to see my ailing grandma she's 95, it might even be too late by the time we get there.
knowing that if she is still awake when we get there , when we do walk out it will be for the last time

That's tough
95 is a good age and I hope that she had a happy healthy life till this time. Try to remember all the good memories that you have of her.
