Picked up a lightly used(16,000mi) 98 KRS a couple weeks ago. The purchase itself was a cool story as I bought the bike from a Master Chief Navy SEAL. Very very cool cat. Love this bike! My history includes 70's Yamaha 2-stroke twins(many),84 RZ(give my left nut to have that back), FZR, DT, Kaw Zephyr 750, Honda Nighthawk, Hawk GT, and finally a 94 CBR1000F I modded up for touring. Oh yeah, and a brief stint with a ZG1000, which is for sale if you know anyone looking for a cheap but mechanically SOUND sport(ish) tourer.
Loved the CBR and the KRS is everything I loved about the CBR with all the rough edges smoothed out. Hands down the best bike I've ever ridden, including some seat time on a 05 FJR. Would take the KRS over it any day of the week. Looking forward to trips from my home in FL to the Smokies and to visit family in Ohio. I believe this is the beginning of a lengthy love affair and I'm glad y'all are here to help me through the growing pains of getting to know my new girl?
