I truly miss my old one. Nothing like 54mpg and gobs of torque. Such a fun bike! If you don't keep it, I hope it goes to a good home.

Hope all is well everyone!

Me too. Honestly its never been quite the match I wanted. The vmax is pretty awesome though. Its like a muscle car. It goes fast in a straight line, but it doesnt pretend to be a sport bike.

I gotta imagine this is deterrence only.... can't imagine any cop would be given the ok to give chase to a sportbike at excessive speeds, regardless of what they're on.

It would be no different than chasing on one of our BMW or Kawi CHP bikes. How chases are handled vary from dept to dept.

yeah, but from what I've heard, in most CA police depts, chasing bikes is "no no" at excessive speeds.

you're law enforcement?

It just depends on the circumstances. There are some depts that don't like chases period.


...and yes! There are actually a lot of law enforcement personnel on this forum.

Not in my possession yet but should be here in a week. Just purchased this 03 Z1000 from a guy out in California.





My dad loading it up on his truck. (he purchased a bike out in California also and went and picked both bikes up)

Got my bike in a few days ago, first things I removed were the sticker/decal on the windscreen and removed the orange spikes that were holding the windshield on and replaced them with just solid black bolts and I painted the radiator cowls and side covers on the bike black.



The rear seat cowl I bought off ebay is a darker orange than the bike so I will need to have that repainted.

Looks great. I have to try one of those bikes. I've heard nothing but great things about them and I've always loved the styling.

I have only been able to put about 30 miles on it with this crappy midwest snow. But I can tell you that I love it so far, I purchased it for a 2000 mile trip in September that will take me and some friends around lake superior and up into Canada little bit. It has a nice upright position and a lot of torque from what I can tell so far. I originally bought it with intentions of replacing it with a speed triple down the road but after riding the Z and seeing it in person I am planning on keeping it and not replacing it.
