Stick Coils 2

Bill,

Good work!

It's good they fit in: not too long, not too short but just right.

'Tis true, I did buy similar coils and they came with my GTR1400.

Lots of other sexy stuff also came with my GTR, such as: ABS; traction control; gobs of power*; an adjustable screen; let me count the ways**.

Divide one by the other and the individual items don't come out that too expensive.

** Damn It! I haven't been this inspired for so long so here goes:

How Do I Love Thee GTR1400?
After Elizabeth Barrett Browning

GTR 1400 how do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
The bore can reach, when riding out of sight
For the ends of being in an ideal race.
I love thee to the level of every day’s
Most quiet need for throbbing exhaust,
I love thee madly, as riders strive for ride (fast).
I love thee purely, as they lean into a turn.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old briefs, and with my childlike faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With every blast. I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if Kawasaki choose,
I shall love thee despite how much you cost.

I hope your bike doesn't call out to you at night, and say "Ride me, you brute!"

Bill.

It has been said, that: beauty in things exists merely in the mind which contemplates them.

Or, said another way: beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Can you believe it, there are actually people who see beauty in the form of the Kawasaki ZRX motorcycle. Isn’t that amazing!

I think there could be a human condition known as “motorcycle disease” – a patients obsessive attraction to a motorcycle simply because they own one.

Anyway, "love" and "beauty" are words we don't hear enough these days.

Groan.

How to hijack a technical thread.

Perhaps we need to set up a new subforum just for Boxer's lyrical waxing.

Yes I found the whole thread confusing because I always thought that Kawasaki’s were diesel because of their sound and performance and then there was the poem. :cry:
