I thought it would be a good idea to drop in here
and learn some things about the Ninja 1000 before
I decide on my next bike. I know it has good ratings
but there is no better information than what I can
get from those who actually own and ride one.

Thanks for letting me in.

Welcome Jack!
Browse around ask all the questions you want.
Lots of information to be found here, as well as biased opinions ;-)

We all love the bike. It's quick and torquey and you can cover hundreds of miles without discomfort. Which tends to draw a more *cough mature owner.

It is a SPORT touring. I think if you wanted to do 500 miles a day it might be a bit on the edge. However 300 miles in a day is no problem.

Greetings jackflash of OhighO... Just my opinion but up until this year I haven't seen any competition for the N1k as a sport touring bike. And I am rapidly losing interest in the competition - the FZ09 (less power the N1k, looks like some kinda wannabe ADV bike) and the Suzuki GSX S1000F which looks a bit odd, has less power and will take Suzuki awhile to work the kinks out in subsequent generations.....

Pretty hard to go wrong with an N1k... Handles awesome on the twisty local roads and I load it up and take it on multi-day tours no problem. If you have any questions ask away.....

Who let you in?....Security!

Welcome
As you got older did you drop the "jumpin" part?
I sneaked in through the back by slipping the door guy a Jackson. Hopefully I get my money's worth in here. Already I'm feeling welcome.

Knees and ankles don't last forever, so I had to give up the jumping routine. Glad to meet you, Tony.

Thanks for the welcome, Buelligan. Biased opinions ooze from those with
a passion for bikes that they love. I can see the attraction to the N1K.

I will check those out, Broke. Thanks.


Welcome. These folks are good bikers!!! What year/color you interested in?
The 2014 has improvements that attract me. As for color, since it has the Ninja badge, I suppose the Candy Lime Green is my first choice. I do like the blue, though. Hmmm......I suppose there is nothing wrong with having two of them, is there? Thanks for the welcome, Mikey.

It's the sport touring line of bikes that appeal to me the most. I dream of being able to take a multi-day trip on a bike that is performance oriented and doesn't beat me to death. The Connie 14 wets my whistle but it's height doesn't agree with me. I'm a little closer to the ground than those who the bike was designed for.

I'm also partial to wind protection. Those hooligan street fighters are cool city bikes, but on the road, I prefer to be out of the breeze if possible. Nice to meet you, Sprocket.

Well, Gary, I take 161 through W'ville, almost daily, on my way to and from work, near Port Columbus. During warmer weather I visit Iron Pony monthly just to chat and check out what used bikes they have in. Perhaps we have met on the O.R. Forum?

Welcome, definitely pull the trigger on buying a N1K, you won't regret it! I've got a 2013 and it's a fantastic bike, missing the electronic gizmos of the 2014 but not the worse for it, as far as I'm concerned!
