Iíve yet to see one on the road here. Did see one in the parking lot at a dealership one time.

I've seen a few buzzing around Melbourne. Aussies must have good taste :)

The only sales figures I recall seeing for the Z900 were for India where it was 3rd best selling Kawa @ 440 units.

Anyone know how well it sells where you live?
There was a comment in Ride magazine along the lines of "deserves to sell better" so I don't think it's anymore than a steady seller in the UK.
I've seen a few about but see more RS's.

Tighten it 'til it strips then back it off half a turn.

I have not seen another one yet. Have seen a few of the RS model. Marketing has worked there.  :019:

What day? I rode Saturday on the baby Z. Weather was amazing! Just got home to St. Louis area to freezing temps and snow on the ground.

Naaa...that was last year. I went up and down the tail 7 or more times. Even though we intentionally went during the week (to avoid the weekend traffic), I still only had 2 clean runs. On last run I was proud of myself cuz I followed a supermoto in and stayed with him to the border (starting from overlook).

I should have known by the green leaves!  :084: There were a few cars that didnít move over, but it wasnít too congested for how nice the weather was. My wifeís first time riding there, so we werenít keeping up with anyone but the cruisers. I did have to catch up to her one time because she left the lookout and I waited for a couple cars. The baby Z can pace a corvette down to the bottom.  :152:
