Miles gone and miles to go
Julian Waller, Preston, Lancashire
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
