Hmm, well lets see. I ride a Kawi, but am probably shifting to a Honda or a Duc (want a twin!), and I think EBos is the shit, so I guess I am a fan. At least for now. Then again, as I read this morning that Honda is hiring away Al Ludington I am getting pissed at the heads at Kawi.

Let me get back to you. Wanna buy a used ZX-7R?:D

Kaw Boy,
just noticed your stats 24k+ posts Jeez are you hard wired to the site! ( could be painful logging on if the plug is in a concealed place ) Now that's what I call dedication, glad to see you are man of distinction with your choice of bike what do you think of it?

With regards to the man from Honda, "Hondanut" funny just seems to fit! ( only for real ):D :D personally always found Hondas good for a laugh!

enough piss taking for today catch ya ( easily)

ride safe.

Anyhoo, I'm a kawasaki rider! I've got 2 of the bikes that helped start the super bike craze. A KZ1100 and a KZ1000.

Well their you Go must have had my Pommy eyes on!
thats my excuse and I'm sticking to it.

Looks like I need to suck up to Hondanut also, he saw the light and made the right choice the second time, ( wondered what a VFR was doing in Kawi Country )

Can't help bad luck!

safe riding.

What I like about my Kawi:

1. Very nice powerband
2. Good comfort for a sportbike
3. Confidence inspiring Handling


What I dont like about my Kawi:

1. Crappy quality paint job (orange peel)
2. Some fricking buzz sound from the dash area
3. easily scratched gauge glass from normal cleaning that never scratched a Honda
4. OK fit and finish, but noiticeably NOT Honda.
5. The stupid kickstand is too short and does not kick forward enough to allow parking on anything other than perfectly flat surfaces.
6. Honda has a club with free 1 year membership, magazine, events, etc. ..... What has Kawi. done for me since purchase?
7. They could'nt put a fricking hinge on the rear seat for hastle free access to the trunk? Damn, Honda has been doing that forever.
8. The rear shock is a JOKE to adjust!!!! AND they dont even give you the frickin' tool to do it!
9. the stock exhaust is a Damn Barrel! WTF is that about? Its gone now so this doesnt really count.
10. WHY did they put passenger grabs on a pure sportbike and if that were'nt enought, why the heck did they have to make two holes in the rear cowl so you cant even remove them without looking crappy!?!? HONDA did a nice job with the ones on the VFR... of course :D


Hmmm, 3-10?? I'll keep it around anyway, its got its own character

Hey Hnut......
Sorry to hear about: 1.)your paint...mine is great!
2.)your buzzing....not mine!
3.)your glass....never scratched mine!
4.)your finish...cant compare...
5.)your kickstand...no prob there!

Anyway.....would like to hear stock/mod. RWHP from other 2001
model owners to compare mine to....that could be my complaint
as it seems lower than others...I know, different dynos, etc....
but other bikes were dynoed the same day (local shop had free
dyno day) and they seemed to be in line.

TIA........Cam
