kzrider, or Stein Arild Sandnes is a Kawasaki KZ enthusiast from Norway. Born in the late seventies, he quickly became very interested in football (or soccer as they call it in the States), and at the age of 2 he had already developed a notorious left-foot strike. Sadly, that was prety much all he ever brought to this fantastic sport, and the football career had to yield to other interests. One of these being motorcycles. He got his first KZ while studying in the United States of America, and the rest is history...

In 2016 Stein turned the reigns for KZRider over to me, Bill Rodgers, aka KZQ. I’ve been part of Stein’s moderation team since 2003, so I pretty much know the players here. My purpose has always been to foster this community by providing a place where we can all share and build our knowledge, experience and friendships.

A few years ago my good friend and long time fellow KZR moderator, Tony, passed away in an aviation accident. I still miss him and his sage advice. If you dig back far enough you can easily find his postings. You may notice that his status is “KZR Legend”, a better description, I couldn’t imagine.

I have been a long time KZ enthusiast having purchased my first Kawasaki, an H1 in 1973. In 1976 I traded the H1 in for a KZ900-A4, which I still have, though I don’t ride it very often as my attention seems fixed on my KZ1300. The 1300 is tall and not as well mannered as the 900 but I like it just the same.

Of Course, I couldn't run this place without the help of the rest of the Admin Team, all of whom are volunteers. In no particular order I'd like to acknowledge KZJoe900, StreetFighter LTD, Patton and SWest. Each of these folks bring different skills and styles to KZRider every day as they work to better our community.

I hope you find KZRider to be as helpful and fulfilling as it has been for me.

Thank You

KZQ aka Bill Rodgers.
