So most of you already saw the story I posted earlier, about how I tried to convince her in to an R6. Well, as a previous Kawi owner, she went right back to the green monster!

I must say though, I gave it a quick ride before we left the shop and it handles pretty damn well.

Anyways, I'll be doing a photo shoot this weekend to take a photo of all of the horses in the stable. For now here is the only couple that I have...Sorry it was taken with my phone.

2009 Ninja ZX-6R, Puig double bubble windsheild, Shogun frame sliders, Two Brothers exhaust, Integrated LED tail light, Rear fender eliminator

That's not bad! I will say, Kawi green is a pretty cool color on the right bike.

Was a good deal indeed. 7k out the door with 1k miles on it (which is only a couple bike rides), and it came with all mods except the rail sliders and puig windshield.

damn! hella good deal!

Definitely want to see more pics, but more importantly how does it ride compared to the 6? I have ridden the new GSXRs and Hondas and I dont like them as much as my 6.

Honestly, I only rode it for about 5-10 minutes but it seemed to handle really well. Obviously I'm always siding with my 6 because I love it to death, but I liked the ZX-6. It's not as top heavy as the 6 because the engine sits lower in teh ZX-6. So turns seem easy to bounce from one side to the other....but I prefer the weight at the top that the 6 has.

Congrats to the wife on her new ride! Can you do the ECU jumper mod on the 09 too, or was that just the 08?

Nice! Buddy just got a '10 in blue not too long ago. Rode it around for a couple of minutes and really liked the way it felt. Nice bike for sure.
