i ride a 2003 636 right now. just wanted to know some people's opinions on the z1000s.
They are sick.
whats the cheapest youve seen it out the door for?
brand new that is
the ol 636 aint fast enough for ya?
it is i just want something with a better sitting position now.
Have you tried to shave your seat?
You can't go wrong with Kawi
sorry, i mean i wanted to site up straight more. After a while my back hurts on the 636
Definitely not the most comfortable bike, but are you practicing good riding posture?
BTW how tall are you?
i think i am, im also 5ft 10in.
Well if youre set on a new bike no ones gonna change your mind. But i shaved my seat and my balls have thanked me BIG time, also if you dont do it now, remember to hold yourself up with your knees on the tank and keep your back straight.
i know what you mean about the balls part... bumps on the road suck. haha ill keep what you said in mind.
Try standing up before hitting a bump. Unless you're driving on a really bad road, it should help a lot.
Btw, I sat on the Z1000 at Daytona last weekend and it looks pretty sweet. Probably a little bigger and heavier than I would like, but otherwise its pretty sweet. I'm trying to find a similar bike that I can use as my DD and take to the track sometimes and not get left behind.
If you're use to a sport bike don't get one. Every time you look down you'll be at the red line, not much balls
