Well, I bit the bullet today and went to Sacramento to buy my new ride. I bought a 2002 ZRX1200R. I guess I'll have to sell the ZR-7 now. I'd like to keep it for my wife but she doesn't want it. It looks like something the Boogey Man would ride!

congrats crazee! Nice ride.

Why is everybody leaving the ZR-7 for new rides though? I plan on keeping this red baby for 100K. Hey, I kept an 86 escort with no AC here in VA for 10 years and 130,000 miles. Maybe it's just the engineer in me.....

Hey, you buy a Viper, and I'll ride over and teach you how to really drive that thing. Purely for instructional purposes, of course :rolleyes: . Those things push like a pig, but man do they ooze sexiness and character. I've had the pleasure of sliding one around a skidpad and an autocross course a few times, and they sure are fun, but not as earth-shattering as you'd imagine. Still handles better then my Jeep though! :laugh:

Actually, the red looks good to me.(I like the green better). The Kawai GPZs used that paint sceme in the mid 80s. The 2002 ZRX in red reminds me of a 85 GPZ550. I was dating the girl next door and her mom bought one for her dad for Christmas. They kept it in our garage for the week before. I was already heavy into dirt bikes and having this bright red Kawi in the garage got me hooked. Just brings back memories....Thats all..........sniff....sniff...

Forget ' Where do you want to ride today.'

Forget 'Where do you want to ride today-Woo Hoo'

It's now..."What do you want to ride today, and where to-Woo Hoo !"

Nah, I just saw the ZRX at the track and that confirmed it.
Some slap-*** in my shop says his rusty old 1985 FJ1200 can whoop my ZRX. That guy must have smoked some carpet or something. He also said the front and the back of my bike was ugly. So I said, "I thought the same thing about your wife, *******!"

Question

Best regards team:

COOTER: Congratulations...! Did you trade-in the ZR-7..? If that's OK to ask....How much they offer you for the ZR-7 in trade-in..? Did you remove the clip-ons...?

I still have the ZR-7 but I'm going to try to sell it. Three people already approached me asking about just today.
