    Still stunning, after all these years.

    Was digging through some pics trying to find something and came upon this photo and it stopped me in my tracks. Even after all these years the ZRX is eye catching. If this bike was a new release today, I would buy it over all other currently available bikes.

    That is a pretty cool picture. I’m starting to like the later year green color schemes with black stripes.

    I'd buy one again. Love the look and feel of the bike. Reminds me of bikes when I started riding in 1980. Simple. Easy to work on. Classic looks.

    '03 green is still one of my favorite color/stripe schemes. I'd buy one too (guess that's why I have three now).

    I bought him NEW in Feb. 2002. I knew the Kaw dealer and he let me in the shop to watch it be un-crated and put together.
    When the shop put the first oil in and started, the dealer Paul said you want to take it for its first ride around the lot?

    Needless to say I put the very first 10th of mile and the rest of the miles.

    Re: Still stunning, after all these years.

    Chris great picture and thanks for sharing it with us! I like helmet, it looks real racy like the bike!

    They are very stunning and still an eye catcher. Yes I would buy it all over again

    The picture would make a great posted framed and hanging in everyone's workshop or man cave.

    Wonder if it could be duplicated... if so, how many would be willing to purchase?

    Like that helmet too, looked for one for a while, never found one.

    Did a service and a wash after Kaws On The Farm, finishing it up today.

    Did a double take, looked, had to look again.

    There's nothing as purty as a ZRX.

    You can have those transformer bikes, with their pull cams maintenance.

    I'll stick with my ZRXs.
