First Ride on the Mighty Kawi ZRX
Finally after about three years on my Ninja 250 I was able to buy a new
bike. Picked up this 2000 Kawasaki ZRX 1100 from Sulphur Springs, TX.
Flew in and rode it home 492 miles! Here is a video of part of the ride -
this bike is amazing, I think I'm in love!
2000 Kawasaki ZRX 1100 testing out a suction cup mount on the tank. (with a
tether) The height is ok but not happy with all the camera movement. I'll
have to work on another location or mount type or see if there is a way to
make this mount more secure. The sound on the camera was turned way down to
avoid the annoying wind noise that happens with this type of set up. Might
dub in a sound track later although I was hoping to be able to include the
awesome engine sound of this bike.
ZRX vs Sportbikes on the Track
See what happens when I take my old, twin shock, steel frame, carbureted
ZRX to the race track. This was my 2nd track day, I learned a ton and had
a great time!
Zrx 1100 Clovers Standup wheelie
75mph clover/exit speed, Still got more lean angle trying to get it higher
without crashing, ecentrics have been flipped/ bike raised on 160/60/17
battle axe tires. Passing the other sportbike was too easy with this setup.
Other bike was also at its maximum lean angle. Hopefully more to come then
gonna try my hand at the track http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eOqQhFrPHoY
Latest bike/video if anyone is interested
Road Atlanta Track Day - ZRX 1100
I won a free track day from http://www.sportbiketracktime.com/ Can't say
enough good things about these guys! Had an amazing 1st track day, learned
a ton about riding fast and smooth. It's funny looking back and the video
- I thought I was REALLY hanging off the bike... guess not! Can't wait to
go back for more!
