Some people have commented or asked about the supercharged KZ1000 I have, stating that it must be really fast. My answer is that they should ride a new 1000RR or Busa and see what fast is.

Well, today I had the absolute pleasure in riding the supercharged bike. All cleaned, new Pirelli rubber and a gorgeous day. First off the Demon tires let it just flop with confidence into the turns, then the smoothness of the ride was more then I remembered. After a short 5 mile trip, I returned to check the bike over. Need to snug the chain a bit more and pulled the plugs to find an absolute perfect burn... made my day!

Then I took out my 1075 KZ. WHAT A SHOCK:huh: The bike was noticeably slower, and the suspension SUCKS! This bike is a solid runner and I couldn't believe how slow it felt compared to the supercharged bike. That may sound like a "duh" statement, but I never realized how fast the bike was, since I rarely compared it to anything in a close time frame.

Now I'm looking to change the rubber on the 1075 bike and get some new rear shocks.
