Default Bike Envy

My wife was talking with her girlfriend the other night and found out her husband got a new bike. The best part is he used me to argue him getting it. I didn't get the whole story but the conversation was something like why can't I get a bike Kenny's wife let him have one.

So my wife tells me he got the next one up from mine and I'm thinking he got the ZX-10.
The next time she tells me it has a 14 in the name. I was like what he got a ZX-14 she said yeah he has the biggest bike Kawi makes in a sport bike. Of course I offered to ride it from the dealer for him if he needed. anyway this is all info taken from the wives so I'll get more details from him this weekend.

Exactly, keep what you have. The 12 is the best bang for the buck in the "top speed" liter bike class. It'll step all over the Busa and 14 any day in the twisties, even takes the busa on 6th gear roll-ons up to a certain point.
