Very cool.  It's always fun finding something like that unexpectedly.
That would be a fun toy to play with.

Congrats on getting the Zook back up to snuff!  All it does here in
Colorado is rain, or snow at higher altitudes.  I am looking out my
office window right now and it's snowing lightly.  It's starting to
feel like summer will never get here.

BTW, Kawasaki is coming to Bandimere Raceway on June 4th and 5th and
is giving demo rides if anyone is interested.  I am attending to ride
the new Ninja 1000 and the Concours 14.
