Hi Dennis52  thank you for the offer.  I actually went and bought the bike I was looking at today and she's sound.  Got a few things to put right at some point as she's been sat a bit,  but nothing that'll stop me riding out this weekend  lol !!!

Already checked the specs thanks.  Wanted to sit on one to get the feel of the weight distribution. Thanks

What kind of bike are you used to?

 

The 1100 Zephyr is a big solid bike. Good for long journeys. What's the kilometrage on it?

Hi, according to this:

http://www.motorcyclespecs.co.za/model/kawasaki/kawasaki_zepher_1100 92.htm

The dry weight is 243kg. To me that's very heavy - close to HD Roadster weight ! If you're a strapping guy then fine. I guess it'll be similar in weight to a 1200 Bandit.

We had a 550 Zephyr (170kg ish) in England and it was a hoot. You had to screw the throttle to the stop and she would fly.
