    Looks fun

    bike are so very reasonable compared to cars , it is awesome for motorcyclists who enjoy variety and ...have the room.

    I loved when I had 7 bikes on the road and 1 project waiting , then storage lost and I have room for 2 ...that sucks , it is nice to have a variety

    nice find

    It was my daughter 650.got it cuz she quit riding at the time and she owed me for a Jeep. I didn't like the low bars. The heli bars required longer controls. This one is done. Plus bigger.

    Nice ride Carl.

    I should put the lights and LSL bars back on mine and take it to the back roads. It's in track livery at the moment.

    They're a hoot to ride.

    I was just saying, not criticizing, I think you should have a garage full of bikes.

    Re: I brought this thing home tonite

    I had one exactly like it...…….except REMUS Exhausts. That big V-Twin is such a different animal compared to the zrx. I called mine "the Beast". I had to make a hefty "donation" to the Harpersville (Alabama) City Hall for being clocked at 93 in a 55...…….and I was actually slowing down at the time. I sold it and got a slower/uglier Vstrom 650 to be able to smell the roses better...……..and not loose my license.
    I've screwed over 13,233 ZRXOA members in the past.......who's next in line??

    Love those bikes. Never understood why the liter bikes were a flop and the 650 was such a huge success.

    Re: I brought this thing home tonite

    Mine weighs in at 441 pounds in track livery and a full tank. Some wheels would help it but the dang bike suspended correctly works very well on a tight track. The fast liter bikes leave me for dead on the front straight but I'm usually there in the corner looking for a way around. I've been considering doing a full system and some head work to up the power but money is burning over in the ZRX build pile.

    There are always tons of 650s at the track. They work well for most right out of the box.
