last night my bud and i took the ZEDs to a bike night. the freeway was pretty open so we did a few 5th and 6th gear roll on races. both bikes are stone stock.these were not really races cuzz we only stayed on the throttle for maybe 2 seconds. the 2010 just kills the 04 at 4-5 thousand rpm. it put 2 bike lengths on me right off the bat. that is ok cuzz everybody was checking out the older 04 green ZED.:p at 63 years old i will take beauty over speed:D

wish they had 2010 in Kawi green but the white and orange is growing on me fast.
Actually, they do - well, its black with Kawi green seat and other bits of green. Looks SICK. And...its a Euro only model. WTF?!?!?! Thats what I wanted too - but I settled on the white/orange model.

Im very happy except for one thing - it is nigh impossible to keep the rear seat clean! The thing is WHITE, and the tail section is so tiny that you easily fling chain lube onto the seat. Wipe it off and it smears. Ive had to take the seat off and wash it in the sink four times already! At least thats a good thing - some warm water and dish soap really cleans it well.

So-crates, go to a non-fling chain wax.... You won't have to worry about getting that pretty white seat dirty! ;) There are many different brands, some people use a Dupont brand that you can pick up at Lowe's for a low price. I'll try to find it and let you know.
