I Ride: '16 ZX-6R 30th Anniversary
For me it was a childhood dream. I remember going into the “Kawasaki Centre” as it was back then, and seeing the ninjas of the day and wanting one. Then I went back a few years later (parents were into bikes) and took loads of posters and brochures. Years later I passed my test and went straight there as it was the only place I remembered. I walked in and was talking to a guy who turned out to be the owners son. His dad walked right up to me and said “Theif! You took all my brochures!”. It was in jest, but how did he recognise me 15 years later?
Anyway, for me it was an easy decision. I’ve had loads of other bikes but keep coming back to the ZX6. This is my third. That was what made me buy it but having ridden the R6, GSXR, 675, CBR and pretty well every other mainstream bike you can in all classes, this is the one that’s home. Ergonomically, the looks, the control, the power, it’s flawless. I’ll own one as long as I can get hold of one that runs.
