I always wanted a motorbike since I can remember but I chose to be an artist with no money, ha!
finished art school in 2003 and lived anti-squad for 4 years in an old office building in Rotterdam. freezing in the winter, travelling trough Europa, doing exhibitions, trying to make a dollar with my drawings and paintings. in 2007 I moved to Amsterdam and I finally had to money to get my motorcycle licence
this tasty street racer Kawasaki GPZ1100 was the first bike I bought.
I knew it wasn't the bike I wanted when I bought it on my 28th birthday in 2007
but it looked so freaking sweet and it made an amazing sound.
I just had to buy it.
kept it for a year. this is the best looking bike I owned.
sold it to a Japanese dude. never spoke to the guy.
a Dutch garage bought it for him. they didn't even start the motor. they just threw the thing in a white Van with two more Japanese bikes lying around on the floor of that stupid Van and left..
felt really bad
I left my email address in the headlight..
so if someone sees this GPZ1100 in Japan, tell the owner it used to be mine, ha
