It was a missile. But the FJ was pretty fast too. Katana 1100 was. So was my friend's Blackbird. Even the CBR1000F was. The difference wasn't significant for real life. At least not to me. And it was really uncomfortable. Handling was subpar too.Why did you feel the ZX-11 was terrible? I loved my 87 Ninja 1000 and put tons of miles on it. I think the only reason I sold it was living in DC, riding in traffic really stunk. That was one of the times I decided I was done with street bikes.
Rode a ZX-11 (only once) and really enjoyed it. It was big and heavy, but hauled in a straight line, was comfy enough (for me) on the highway, and could still get around corners....well enough. But I didn't have to own it or fix it!
Agreed, that is a good one thanks. Should be printed out and handed to everyone to read at track days I also like they used CMPs turns 11-12 in the illustration! Haha!
