    1200 Graduation Gift

    Technically not mine yet but my dad Red Rex II has promised this to me and I have ridden it some with him on one of his other bikes. I hope others around my age get a ZRX as they are great bikes. Thanks Dad and sure has a lot more get up and go than my Ninja 300.Name:  100_6526.JPG

    I think I have tested my Dad at times but don't we all. Forgot you could include a picture of bikes. Has a few miles on it but seems to be in good mechanical shape.Name:  100_6525.JPG

    I think he is great. Older than most my friends parents but he is always doing something staying busy and cool in my opinion. I rode with him yesterday and friend of his brother and one other rider on ZRX. Used my Ninja 300 but still fun to get out for ride with him and others.

    Cool glad others are liking the Rex bikes like my son. Mine has his eye on a black 1100 now but that will cost him if he wants it. One free bike for doing well but that is my limit.

    Finished 12 weeks of classes for CNC machining and will start my two needed classes for Technical degree next week. Dad may have to sign bike over soon. Associates is within completion by next year and bike is all mine. He lets me ride his bikes now if I am with him and that is cool.

    Great to see Motorcycling in the blood - I am a long way off but I can only imagine going for a ride with your son/daughter would be just an amazing experience.

    I take my little man on short trips on the back - but cant wait to get to where you are at!

    Re: 1200 Graduation Gift

    Welcome and yeah I have to agree that itís a nice looking bike although I am partial to Blue!! You obviously have done the right things growing up. Your Dadís confidence that you are ready to wrestle a REX around didnít happen overnight or without trial I am sure. Make him/us proud and ride it responsibly (most of the Tim) and always wear your gear!!

    Congrats on your hard work!!

    Re: 1200 Graduation Gift

    I like the blues myself as my first was one of the showroom floor. Have looked for another blue but they are hard to find in decent shape for a decent price. Funny thing about my son and the ZRX he is now riding. We went for a ride and I was on an 1100 that runs great and handles even better. When we got to a stop he asked me to slow down! Glad he is respecting the bike more than I would of at that age. He does wear his gear and we both do more than in past due to me and a deer bike crash that about did me in.

    I had the 03 blue and currently two 02 Red Two 2000 Black 1100 and the Green 05 pretty much my son is owner now. My lottery dream is to have one of each year and each color made at least for U.S. sales.

    I think when he gets some machines of his own as he hopes he can make some parts for all the members that would be in need. Us old timers can not make stuff forever and would be good to keep the ZRX bikes going for years to come.
