My last three bikes have been an R6(04), GSXR750 (04) and an R1 (O5)so you can see that i dont keep my bikes that long. It was last Nov/Dec i first saw the pictures of the 07 Z750 in green and i thought it looked a stunner. So in January with snow on the ground i had to order one, completely different to my previous bikes but had to see what it was like, i ordered a black one being a boring chap trying to play safe but in the end changed my order for the green one, im glad i did now as its cracking. Although i have only done 500 miles and they have been running in miles (ish)i have been impressed with the whole naked bike thing, the bike turns on a sixpence has loads of low down power and is a more pleasurable experience, long gone are those aching forearms and surching for a perfect bit of road, the Z makes every road a pleasure to ride and has renewed my interest in just cruising around (used to get bored on sportsbikes unless i was with a group or on a trackday). Thoroughly enjoy the zed and recommend to anyone who gets secondthoughts after reading numerous roadtests making comments about handling, brakes or whatever, for most of us all bikes a cracking and we never quite understand what the journalist mean. Going touring through france on 20th May so looking forward to comparing my previous trips.
