Many of us here on the Ninja H2 forum own or have owned the '84/85 E1/E2 Kawasaki ZX750 Turbo bike. Mike Chestnut, the 750 guru and soon was to have made his mark with our H2, was laid to rest today at 2:00p Central time.

He was riding his H2 near his home when a startled turkey vulture took off and crossed his path. He was struck square in the head and most likely was taken instantly. He was travelling at a rate between 70 and 80 mph at the time. Turkey vultures are a fairly heavy bird, adults can weigh upwards of 25 lbs.

Oh man, so sorry to hear this. I also owned a 1984 ZX750E1 Turbo and remember the one Mike built for the Sport Rider UFO shootout.

That's sucks man. :(
