Today I'm Total Motorcycle-less

#1 Unread post by totalmotorcycle » Fri Mar 09, 2012 6:17 pm

Ya, got to love that topic title! haha. :laughing:

Sold my 2001 Kawasaki ZR7 today after 3 years of owning it, great bike and I couldn't have asked it to go to a better new owner either. He was our pest control guy (we had squirrels in-between our floors and in the attic) and got to know him as a great guy in the 4 visits. Used to ride and now a returning rider and going to the USA for a big bike trip, needed a bike to get back on and have fun with here in the UK.

Wish him and my old bike well and many years of fun together.

Next bike will be in the USA for me. Oh, so many possibilities, might just buy a standard Harley-Davidson Fat Bob... or even a ZRX1200R; haha.

Nice ceemes!! I was going to make a Purple Onion comment...but the "BBW in Leather" pic works too...

Couple that with the made-in-the-garage look that they have to them they are going to be a tough sell. Love the idea - just a little short on execution.
