    IMG_0069.JPG I just bought a 1986 ZL600 (vin: 4942) with 9,330 miles on it. It runs quite well and seams to be in great shape. I'll be replacing the tires and fork seals next week, but other than that it's gas and go.

    Back in the early 1990's I owned a ZL900 and I really like it but I hated having a 80 mile gas range on the tiny tank. At the time is was my only bike, now the ZL600 is one of three bikes in my garage, so it doesn't have to be the perfect bike. I have other options.

    I bought my 86 zl600 (VIN: 0522) in 2014 with 20,426 miles. I have learned and fixed many things on this bike and it now has 23,700 miles and counting.

    I've just done a deal on an 86 ZL600. Viewed and assessed it on Saturday 15th July and left a deposit. I will be collecting, what is my first ZL, in a few weeks.
    This bike appears to be in very good, original conditon, with just over 23,000 mls showing and everything works, and it sounds sweet.
    It came to the UK, from the U.S, in 1992, and has been owned by the same guy here in the UK, for 21 years, and then his wife for the last four . I will post some more details when I get my hands on it on the 05th August!

    I have one too. Got it from a friend who bought it new, when he gave up riding. He thought it was too fast and bought it only because it was red. Currently has 9500 miles and is completely stock. VIN ends in 1326.

    Love the bike, suits me perfectly. Only gripes I got is wish it had a center stand and a kick start.

    What is the purpose of this registry though? I was hoping maybe somebody had plotted all the ZL owners on a map. Would be cool to see how near each other some of might be and not know it. When first signed up here, there was another guy who lived 10 mins away. His name is Clint, but think heard that he sold his bike. Nice guy, he rubbed my tank out for me and made it look new again.
