I like others here had a long hiatus between bike ownership. My very first bike was a 1976 KZ900LTD purchased in 1976. I liked it so much in 77 I purchased a 1000LTD. Rode both till 82, then life got in the way. After having recurring dream about my 900 I went and bought another . This is a survivor, 7400 miles all original down to the duel points ignition , but has been repainted.

glad to be here and hope to learn a lot from ya'll

Tom

Hi Tom, welcome: loving that red 900 - very nice indeed.

Welcome from me too - love the 'new' Ltd, but there's just something about old photos that make the bikes look that much better.

I remember riding a survivor LTD around the car park at Ralph’s rally a few years back.
I couldn’t see the owners face as I slid around but apparently it was a picture :Oo

Thanks for the warm welcome. it's nice to see everyone taking their bikes seriously . All photos look great. here in dallas area I may have seen 5 vintage kaws on the road in the last 25 years and only 1 LTD . It's a shame the americans don't have the same values when it comes to their Japanese bikes.
