I talked with the service manager at the shop I go to and he told me he just got a blue '07 ZX14 as a demo and said I can ride it if I want. Looks like I'm up for a fun ride!! Can't wait!!
He currently rides a ZX10 among others and said the ZX14 is one heck of a ride with power everywhere.

Gosh I would love to straddle one of those rocketships for a test ride one day.... I bet its something to ride a bike that has horsepower to burn...

Steve,
Let me know if they'll offer a demo on the new Connie when they get one.
I don't think I can fold my body onto the ZX...
Will do. I'm sure for the ZX to be good for me (5-11, back/hip issues) I'd need bar risers (have Heli's on VFR) and of course the aftermarket seat. Can't wait to twist the throttle.

I was thinking seriously about buying the new Concours14 but felt the Wing was the best way to go for my S.O. and myself to explore the country. Nothing like a bike with serious power to get the blood flowing! My custom '03 XX isn't nearly as powerful, quick, or top speed fast as the Ninja, but with very low 10 second 1/4 mile times, a dyno proven 138 h.p. @ the rear wheel and a true top speed of 175-177 m.p.h. , it too will easily satisfy my "need for speed". Plus it's a Honda!

I used the "S.O. " so I wouldn't have to type all the different permutations. My significant other is my beautiful fiance Debbie. We've been engaged only 2.5 weeks.
