after my 97 zx7r, this is fun. bought it without even hearing it, or riding it. when you want something, its worth a risk. gave my zx7 away bit too cheap as p.x, but riding the 955 home, i knew i made correct decision. it feels loads lighter, sounds superb even with standard can, high level race can next! parking at the shops, people admire it. love the later 955i graphics...when i was sat on it two young uns were discussing if it was a ducati, or , erm , ferrari bike! well its 8 yr old, the t595 shape, and ride mag voted it the coolest bike to ride a yr or two ago. makes my old green white purple zx7 seem bit naff. dont think i will ever sell it, just join it with a 749s ducati sometime. these bikes are both ace!
