Top Gun...

Remember the scene in Top Gun where Tom Criuse was riding a bike alongside a fighter jet?

Well... I got hold of the same bike last night!

(Note: Picture above is sample to give you readers an idea of how the bike looked like)

Its a Kawasaki GPZ900R Ninja. The unit I got is a 1984 model and red (of course!) in color. It belongs to another riding buddie of mine who is going overseas on business for a month. He asked me if I would look after it - a request I could not refuse!

The GPZ900R is a pretty darn fast bike (even by today's standards). Runs on a 908cc liquid cool 16 valve engine that churns out over 110bhp. Easily pulled a 180kmh on the highway on the way home last night after picking up the bike. Could have gone faster, but I ran out of road *wicked grin*

Something tells me I'm gonna enjoy July...

And the b*st*rd didn't even ask me if I would look after it, considering I'm on leave for a month.
