Tell us about it: Previously I had a Yamaha Fazer S2 600, and did around 30,000 miles working towards my IAM Advanced riding test, and touring Europe. I had great fun but wanted a bit more grunt for less revs over long distances. I tried a few bikes out from my local dealers including an R1 and GSXR1000… then I tried my Kawasaki Z1000SX. After the third test ride, I took out my pillion, Lauren, and she loved it – the deal was done. I’ve added a tinted screen and some heated grips and I now run it on BT023s after talking to the Bridgestone rep at the Ron Haslam Race School. Over the next few years, I’m planning to explore and do more long range tours in the UK and Europe.
