Miles gone and miles to go

Af­ter see­ing your Fact File fea­ture on the Kawasaki ZX-6R in your Au­gust is­sue I de­cided to go and buy this 1998 G1 model from a lo­cal dealer in Pre­ston. It had done 57,000 miles when I got it and I put an­other 5000 on it in my first month. It’s had nine pre­vi­ous own­ers.

I fit­ted a dou­ble-bub­ble screen and shorter levers to make the bike more com­fort­able for me. The tyres weren’t great so I’ve fit­ted a pair of Dun­lop Sport­max.

It says a lot for the ZX-6R that it can be as bril­liant as it is even with the miles it’s done. In the win­ter, if money al­lows, I’ll re­turn it to its orig­i­nal pur­ple fin­ish and give it a proper ser­vice.

Good nick with big miles on it
