You messed up by not setting a picture limit.

Got this when I was 14 to start on. 2004 Honda Rebel 250



Got this when I turned 16. 2001 Honda Shadow 750cc American Classic Edition



I didn't like the "crash" bars because they hit the ground too easy and act as a pivot point. And the saddle bags are ugly. Ended up selling it with the bottoms of the foot pegs ground off from dragging them through turns.



Got this when I turned 18. 2000 Kawi ZX6R.













Enough of that bike. I sold it to my brother and got a 2004 Kawi ZX10R sometime around 21 years old. It broke as soon as I got it home.



Got it back together and it formed a coolant leak.



Then finally got it all sorted out.











And 800 miles later the engine blew up.



So I said F this S and parked it.

Then last year while I was 24 (still am) I picked up my current baby. 2012 Kawi Z1000. 2 miles on the clock when I got the key. No more used BS.

The Akrapovic on my Z1k still seems too long. They are making the tail shorter on bikes now so the exhaust had to get shorter too.

Cost is too high, makes less power and the left side looks like an afterthought.

I just gotta keep my eyes open for someone with duals that lays their bike down on the left side. The short can should fit the single exhaust.

agree on price, mine actually makes more power than the 4.2.1 2014 Zeds by 5hp with the same setup bar exhaust that Ive had conversations with so disagree there. and my left side looks just fine. Looks bare with nothing there.......

My first bike was a 2009 Ninja 250, but I don't have any photos of it.

Sold it a year later and got a 2007 CBR600RR.





Then sold that two years later and got a brand new 2013 Z1000.

First bike was when I was a kid, I think maybe a 2001? Yamaha TTR-125L. First adult bike was the 2009 R6 which started black and gold, went to black, then to orange after a high-side...



Now the Z, which is currently having it's own color update thanks to being run over.


As it sits now:
