    Daily Ride
    Met up with a friend of mine for some riding on Friday (8th), the plan was to head up to Lake Winnipesaukee and cruise around some, then meet up with some other friends for food, drinks, swimming, etc. We're just through downtown Alton northbound on Rt. 11, not an hour into our trip, when the S...
  4. New Rider: How Important is ABS?

    Daily Ride
    I’m 22-years-old, 6’ 180 lb, and looking to get my first bike. I’d like to use it for daily commuting and for long trips. I drive cross country a lot and would love to use a bike instead. For example, I’m driving from Chicago to Dallas in a few months. I’m sold on a Ninja, but can’t decide...
  5. Can you upgrade to ABS brakes?

    Ninja 650R Performance Upgrades
    I've owned my Ninja 650r for a year now and I've gotten into an accident that scared me quite a bit. I entered a highway entrance around 80mph and I was unaware of the traffic up ahead. I immediately slammed my front and rear brakes and slammed into the back of a car. Luckily, the impact didn't...
  6. Starting Out On A Ninja 1000 ABS

    4th Gen Z1000/Ninja 1000
    I know a lot of people won't agree with this usually but I saw that the new Ninja 1000 has that "low power" mode that only uses 70% of it's power. I was originally thinking to start on a 650 ABS but if this bike really has an option to only use 70% of 1000 (700), I was considering going this...
  7. 2013 Color Clarification, ABS not Black only.

    General Ninja 650R
    Hello everyone. :-) I was looking forward to buying a 2013 650r with ABS, but disappointed when I visited the Kawasaki website to find it say the ABS will be available in one color, Black. And the non-ABS version in 2 colors, White and Blue. But that is wrong. I can confirm 100% the 2013 ABS...

  9. How do I know if my Bandit has ABS

    General Bandit Chat
    I feel stupid asking this but I have spent a lot of time searching the internet and can't seem to find anything. It is a 2001 and from what I understand ABS was an option. A visual inspection makes me think not. It looks like any old set of motorcycle brakes. But I honestly wouldn't know...
