Sunday AM Gandy Blast

Just got back from a nice morning ride on my stock black 14. It was cool enough to wear leather and the bike was feeling happy. I rolled it on in 6th and it buried the speedo. I have never had such a rush in my life. This thing is a beast. The top end charge is astounding. I turned around on the Tampa side and did it again, WOW. I saw a white Busa and a 1000RR on the way back to Roosevelt heading for Gandy but I figured don't press my luck. This thing really goes on the top end like nothing on earth. And it was stable ,too. Thanks Kawasaki for making such a machine, I will be smiling all day.....

I'm surprised we didn't run into you as we were blistering the Gandy last night...and the Causeway (they were staging cars and bikes till 4 AM there)... and Bayside bridge...oops and Howard Franklin before the Bayside...

I was also so glad it is finally cool enough here to wear leather- I had the opportunity to break out the new Dainese jacket thats been in a closet since I bought the bike 5 months ago.

I certainly look forward to seeing you out there!

We're riding again tonight

my ass just got waxed by this fat bastard on a stage 2 velocity busa, had a good time though. talked to him for a while and found out theres a LOT of highly modded heavy hitters in my immediate area that meet up sunday mornings- all zx-12s, busas and 14s. sunday rides are the best

sorry, buried the speedo really meant achieved speed limit in a careful manner
