I understand Kawasaki can create a fine touring machine...even if it weighs close to 700 lbs....

Tell us why you have not sold your ZX-10R...

isgood!!

Same reason I own an 08 CBR 1000. Yes the Honda (or Zx-10) will out perform the Connie, but you can't ride them for 500 mile trips with a passenger and luggage. But do I get left behind on the connie 2 up?; ask my friends who ride w/me on their sport bikes. If I could only have one bike it would be the Connie, and I work at a bike shop which gives me the pleasure of riding many bikes, so this is not an opinion derived from reading others opinions.

If I could own just one bike it would be a ZX-14 ; but I like the headlights and lightweight features of my ZX-10R that no bike I know can match....my 04 ZX-10R is more comfy than many may emember or know...not a touring bike for 500 mile days of course not...but a very fun bike for less than 300 miles I believe...have done that with no problems...in the rain even....no such thing as one bike that does it all....sure the connie is a great touring machine.....to me it offers nothing more....

it's a matter of tastes and personal needs most of all..........

Stay on topic.
x2 no religion allowed
Again no religion allowed. I am getting tired of deleting your religious crap.
Trying to turn every thread into a smack house argument is also getting old. And I won't let that happen.

Understand power to weight ratio?? if you did you would have never overbragged a 700 lb neutered big bore touring bike... ...

besides you deleted way after everyone read the truth....and it was not all religious..like it matters....you are virtually out of bounds...

enjoy; the truth stays....!!!

your biased opinion is a mute point anymore....

Happy touring with geritol...

Power to weight ratio illustrated....

No spam. This has nothing to do with the C14, leave it in the smack house.

My opinion is known ted..does not matter if you think you are doing a fair job here with opinions..you are not...as usual...take care..makes me no difference..won't make your overweight touring bike any lighter will it....nor your 1/4 miles any better..nor top speed ect ect..blah blah blah..

hey enjoy your touring bike..cause that is what it is ....nice torque with nice weight.. ..

ok enjoy...

you have made your C-14 your new religion...you just are too blind to see it..pity........If you can virtually ignore a slower bike than what is available for comfort more power to you....I am not there yet..I can't virtually ignore owning a heavy bike as a C-14 when a ZX-14 exists....

I tour in a car it has even better windshield protectionand air conditioning and my family with me....

bye......

I just put a new front tire on the thing and it was remarkable how much the handling improved, the Michelins can wear funny.

Reading that article has me considering trading in my 08 connie w/o abs for the newer version w/abs. I'll see how well the tax man treats me in 2011....

I have an 09 with ABS and I am hoping the 2011 comes in black and I will probably get one. I like the idea of ABS.
