Good to see you posting here, Vinnie!!
Yes, Vinnie... The mighty unrestricted 2000 ZX12R in the outrageously attractive "Nuclear Snot" coloration IS, without doubt, the baddest sumbitch in the group of those bad sumbitchs!!
Time marches on tho, I suppose...


I feel as fast as I usta be - But in reality, I've slowed to ludicrous speed... I thought I was plaid...
I actually really liked the Nuclear Snot color! And if your riding the fastest bike on the road it should be green! I say that as I currently own a blue 14r :rolleyes: Of course I would have bought a green 14r if one was available, but the blue is OK too.

Good to hear from you, Buellbarian, Slider, Blitz, 'dragr, Duck, and the whole shootin' match! Would love to meet up with you all sometime. Thinking pretty hard about an early retirement in Montana...

Still crankin' out the petroleum! At least until you can come up with a nukebike, or one that runs off of windmills! Traded the 05 Wing for an '18 a few years ago... not really impressed with the new version. Still have the 2012 14r, which is a blast in a straight line, but probably not as fun as the old 12r in the twisties! When you getting another Buell?

Still funny I see. Be 68 in a few months. Not riding a lot. Had to put new batteries in the Wang and 12 this week. Enjoying retirement.

So is there any truth to the rumor that the original mighty green 2000 ZX12r was the fastest 12r ever built? Hope you all are doing well!
It is so true I replaced all my Persimmon Red body work with Catalyst Composites fiberglass bodywork painted in the mighty green. I gained 10 mph on the top end and a second in the 1/4 mile @ Bandimere with just that change. :)

Actually I bought the last leftover 2000 ZX-12R for sale in Denver in June of 2001 @ Grand Prix Motorsports and it happened to be red. But... a ZX-12R has to be green so I took care of that in a proper fashion years ago.
