My 12 had it's first birthday this month. After one year, 10,500 spirited miles, 4 rear tires, 2 front tires, 7 oil/filter changes, and maybe just 1 or 2 mods, I can honestly say it's faster and better looking now than it's ever been! It now has character with it's assorted rock chips, various quirks, etc.

Gave the Stealth Silver a major cleaning today, wash, wax, the whole 9 yards, then went to a Labor Day Bike/Car show. The 12 was the best damn looking bike there!!! (Maybe I should have entered it <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol"> )

This is the best bike I have ever owned, period, end of story. I'm currently trying to narrow down the list of winter projects. Here is the year old "Stealth Silver"....















I really love this bike!!!

Hey, what's with that swingarm sticker? <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol">

I shouldn't talk, I need a swingarm paint patch too. At least we got the 17's!

Vinnie, that's part of the "character" I was referring to. <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol">

I'd rather have character and a 17t than an 18t and a pristine swingarm!!! <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/roll.gif ALT=":rollin">

Scoot, I'm getting about 3000 miles from the rear and 6000 from the front with the Pilot Sports. About 50% more than the dunslops and with a 100% better tire!

Most agreeable! BTW, swingarm paint should be here this week. It'll let you know if I need a sticker or not. <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol"> <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol"> <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol">

I found a new road.

4600 on the 02 PMB, I ended up in Portsmouth.

Looking good Rob.

Heading out at daylight this morning. Going to ole man's cave. area.

If Jessie Jame's had a ZX12R I'd ride with him.

Hey as far as I'm concerned, a couple of rock chips add to the character of the bike. If you ride them, they're gonna happen.

One thing I am concerned about though is what is happening to my radiator. I am definitely adding a screen this winter after I comb out the fins.

BTW Rob, she looks good.... But I would expect no less from a fellow anal-retentive. <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/roll.gif ALT=":rollin">
