Any of these god awful self assembly Chinese "bike in a box" things should be given a mention for danger. The build quality of a Fray Bentos pie tin outshines them!!!!

What?

How could the Kawasaki H2 Mach IV be left off the list of danger bikes?

The Kawasaki  Z.L.1000 eliminator & the worst handling bike I have ever ridden [and I started on a sprunghub  1953  Triumph ]  an early  Yamaha XS 650 ,both take some beating .       And  p.s.  How come M.C.N.  are allowing all the  SPAM !  .

Ha ha

 I think we all spotted the odd one out was the Kawasaki GPZ1000RX or was it a miss print ?

A mis-print? Nope

The RX was a piece of the proverbial in comparision to its Gpz900 predecessor, posessing none of the 900's balance or feel. The thou' had a horribly soft front end which was cunningly combined with little feel. I was very disappointed in the thing as it looked the bollocks at the time.

GSXR1100K

 I owned and sprinted a GSXR 1100K. A notoriously bad handling bike with a brilliant motor. You couldn't relax on it, you had to stay in charge or it would have you through the nearest hedge. I fitted Pirelli Hi Sports in an attempt to give it better traction, they worked but the bike shredded them in a few hundred miles and a following rider commented that the rear wheel was off the ground a lot of the time.

A neighbour bought one too and even after Maxton had rebuilt the suspension it was still evil. I'd changed bikes to a ZZR1100 by then and there was no way the "Sports' Suzuki could stay with the 'Tourer" Kawasaki. We were riding over Dartmoor, before the 50mph limits were imposed, going quite quickly and my friend on the Suzuki stopped, I thought he'd broken down. When I went back he said it was either stop or crash trying to keep up, that says it all really.

Therefore I nominate the GSXR 1100K to be included in the Danger Bikes article.
