Finally, after years of missed opportunities and just not being able to get a test ride on one I finally come across a mint condition 1998 ZX9R. Called the guy up and had a chat about it, he's the second owner and has had it for the past 15 years. So I arranged an inspection, rocked up to his house and fell in love with it straight away. Sat on it and instantly felt at home. Took it for a test ride and well, I knew I was onto something good. Deposit down.

I picked it up yesterday and I gotta say it's got what a lot of new bikes today lack, and that's character. Carbies, the exhaust note and once you hit around the 8k mark hold on and enjoy the ride. Now to book it in for a track day and see how it goes when it's really angry

Well done on the find.

I'm the same way, only solidified more after riding several new bikes recently. This bike fits me and I love riding it.
