    Welcome. Im on GC and head south often for a good rip.
    $200 pricey.....oh dear, but a mere drop in the ocean. Wait until you really get started.
    Too late now but there is an R model in Lismore thats priced well......Im pretty tempted.

    Yeh I saw that, I could've waited but I'm happy with what I've got. I'd be more hesitant to modify a nice R stocker.

    I'm in Murwillumbah and currently working in Burleigh so Tomewin mountain is my cummute;

    It has a cult following here in Australia,especially for enthusiasts of the Z900.

    Several actors from the original Mad Max feature in Stone.

    The movie was made around the same time as the release of the first Kawasaki Z900. The producer of the movie,who also plays one of the leading characters,approached Kawasaki and asked for help with providing the bikes. Kawasaki gave them something like 10 brand new Z900's,for free,to make the film,which were them custom painted to suit the theme of each character in the OMG,Gravediggers (all returned Vietnam vets,in the movie).

    If you can,get hold of the DVD,as it has all the interesting back stories about the bikes.

    Didnt they put a call out for "some" bikes to show up for one of the scenes and literally thousands turned up?

    I have the parts back from the paint shop and I'm pretty happy with the results. The main colour is a green/blue pearl flip, the photos don't really do it justice. It was unintentional but It looks like I've turned full Aussie!

    Nice bike Shroomie.
    I'd both an S and an R for a couple of years.
    The S was more comfortable to ride esp on long distances and had headlights that worked.
    But when it came time to sell one, the R was the one I kept.. Heart over head every time!

    Where did you get the paint job mate? I'll be looking soon for a good painter for my ZRX.
