I brought home a new green 2013 Ninja 1000 ABS yesterday ($10,000 out the door). I put a hundred miles on it and like it very much. Today is raining, but I hope to add another 500 miles this weekend, then change the oil. It seems to be geared a bit low so I will add a tooth to the front sprocket. I have ordered a 19" tinted V Stream windshield for touring. I will use my existing Givi PLX 35 side cases.
