HI, I just signed onto this board. I used to have a zx-11 but crashed it about 4 years ago. I'm thinking of maybe gettin a zx-9, maybe a 98-99 for cheap?
I'd like to have a lighter bike to practice cornering skills with (I suck at it). Maybe even a 6. I'm an older guy, and ride another brand, but I like Kawasakis as well.

I guess this is just not a very welcoming sight for newbies. I'll go back to my Suzuki sights. I'll probably find out about a 9 there sooner anyhow. bye

It's nothing persoinal JW. It looks like right after your post there was a flurry of new posts, and yours was pushed down and out of sight. Happens alot, especially to people with low resolution. You may want to try the Sport Bike forum here. Good luck in your quest.

Hey JW,

A smaller bike would be advisable if you are working on technique.

Just be careful not to ride the smaller bikes for too long or you won't want to change :lol:

For the track, I went (down) to 600's a couple of years ago to get my cornering skills up.

Recently I had some seat time on a new 1000 and guess what...

For the track or street, I'll stick with the 600's. I'll sum up my thoughts and say that 600's are all about the "next corner" and nothing about the exit concerns I had on the 1000.
Not to mention I was stunned at how much I felt the motor "resist turning" compared to the smaller bikes.

Anyway, from a newbie to a newbie... welcome.
Craig
