I'm a Belgian dude, living in Thailand since 2001, and proud owner of a black Z900 since December 2016.
Why this particular bike? Why a big bike in a hectic city like Bangkok?
First of all: I'm a Kawa lover.
I got my first Z750 (from my dad) in 1980 and I drove it until it fell apart.
When I came back from Germany at the end of the eighties, I got an opportunity to buy the Zephyr 1100 from a guy who apparently couldn't handle this bike.
... and then I made a mistake: I had to choose between my girlfriend and my bike!
After my marriage ended, my passion started to itch again, but I got married to a woman who was NOT opposed to a bike,
but work spoiled everything: for the last 10 years, I'm sitting more in a plane than in my car
Nowadays I start working on Sathorn at 6AM, coming from Pahon Yothin: no traffic, but no public traffic as well
Four years ago I couldn't hold it anymore On my wish list: Kawasaki, naked, 4 cylinder... -> Z800
Bought it, added a nice sounding exhaust (IXIL X55), and cruising around ... until I saw the Z900 at the Bangkok Motor Show
I impulsively did a pre-order (thinking it would arrive somewhere mid March 2017, until I got a call from the dealer in Dec 2016.
Rushed over there and did a trade-in with my Z800, as simple as that
Jo, the reborn
