I bought my first motorcycle, a new 2011 Kawasaki ZX6, in 2011. First saw a Hammer some time in late 2012 and have been strongly tempted ever since. For the past six to eight months the temptation has been almost a compulsion.
On 30 August I was finally able to get the $ lined up to trade up to a used 2012 Hammer with about 7500 miles. Could not be happier.
