I Just picked up my new ride tonight. It's a 99 ZX-9R in blue/purple. It was so scary riding home tonight in the rain with so much power in the rear wheels. I can't wait for a nice sunny day to take it out again. Count me in on your next group ride!

haha... i knew this would be the start of another kawi vs yammy vs gixxer war. :D to tell you the truth i like them all and i wouldn't mind riding a yammy or gixxer one day. the 9R actually wasn't my first choice but i got a good deal on this off my friend, so what the heck. it's been low sided at low speed, but i have already found most of replacement parts for it. it'll be in excellent shape when i'm done. i'll try to get some pictures of it soon. i can't wait to ride with the rest of you guys. the next group ride on a sunny day (during non-business hours), i'll be there for sure!

Oh, it happened allright. Back in '98 the 9R took top honors in the magazine's eyes when it beat back Big Red and proudly held the Champion's cup high over head.......... and 3 months later the R1 snuck up unnoticed and hit Kawi on the head with a backjack and scuttled away into the night with the Cup.

One point for Kawi though. Rick Gadson took a bone stock '98 9R down the 1/4 in 9.99 seconds and did a backup run just to show it wasn't a fluke. That was the first stock production bike to break into the 10's until the 'Busa and later the Gixxer 1K did it. Not too bad for a "sport tourer".....

(How's that Farhad, do I keep the yellow jersy for another day? ((the yellow jersey thing is a reference to the Tour do France, the day's top dog gets a yellow jersy for the next day)) )

PS: AlphaRed makes "us" 4 now I believe. Hu99, Mr Murphy, AlphaRed and myself. Guys, we gotta get a "family" photo this summer :D

Haha... and the debate continues! :D I'm just happy to have the 9R. So did anyone here keep track of how many Kawi riders we have on this board? I seems to me that there are lots of R6 riders also.

In 1988 the Kawasaki GPZ900 Ninja was the top rated sportbike and for the next four years it would reign supreme. In 1992 Honda introduced the first CBR900 Fireblade, which was numero uno until the R1's introduction in 1999.
As for the top speed king, the ZX11 ruled the speed wars from 1995 until it was equalled by the CBR1100XX in 1997 and toppled by the Hayabusa in 1999.
What goes around comes around. The Green Machine will once again have its day.
