quick's 2018 kawasaki Z900RS

hi all,

i got my bike on saturday 9 february 2018.  :018:

i am a really small guy, so even with the stock "low seat" (31.5" / 800mm) that we get in south east asia, the bike is still too tall for me...

i am currently adhering to the kawasaki break in process. the throttle is a tad abrupt, but i am getting used to it and barely notice it now. that being said, i can't wait to use the rest of the rev range and unleash that unholy induction roar!!  :007:

looking forward to posting my shenanigans here..

Nice bike and a beautiful location!  I be its brutal having to keep it below 4 grand.  I'm not looking forward to it on my bike.  Its also good to hear the throttle is something you can get used to.  Some people make it out to be a demon.

early this morning saturday 02.24.18, i did a quick 200km run before my 0900hrs appointment with kawasaki for the first 1,000km service.
after the oil change, my god. the abruptness in the throttle almost disappeared! i'm not kidding. i mean it's still there, but after the oil change it is so much smoother.  :305:

sunday 02.11.18

the day after i got the bike, i did a solo 400km run to the former US naval base in subic bay.

ran into some riding buddies, but declined their invitation to tag along with them as i was doing a break in run.


although that monster does look juicy...


anyhow, back to regular programming. i left the boys and rode away, cheating the 4,000rpm limit a "few" times.  :007: about a 100km later, i stopped to rehydrate. this is the start of about 20km of very nice twisties


the sides of the tires haven't been used yet on the long boring highway portion


at the entrance to mt. samat, a military memorial site. i didn;t go up.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mount_Samat_National_Shrine
maybe next time. after i took this pic, the cops came out and asked about the bike


obligatory photo op at the mothballed bataan nuclear powerplant




a short shoot to the pawikan (sea turtle) conservation center


anvaya cove is an upscale resort. so of course i didnt go int...  :745:


some random shots inside the former subic bay naval base. by this time, the chicken strips are all but gone.  :007:




no visiting US navy ships in port today


time for early lunch (steak!!) at meat plus. only three other customers are here at 1000hrs. bmws100rr, bmwr9t, and yamaha mt-09. no four wheelers and their screaming kids, yet. thank god.


nice bike


i know what you are going to say. but sometimes, i like to live on the edge.  :008:


last shot at the flag, then headed back to manila


it was a great day! :028:

You have the low seat, right? Looks cooler that the higher one we get default here in EU...
