I lived in Frankfurt for several years and used to ride back to London and West England many times each year for weekends, up until Nov when it started to get a little too cold for the seven hour ride. I used to own a BMW 1150GS for these trips back home but it proved to be appalling. Terrible vibration and it was impossible to sustain any speeds over 90mph. I bought a new ZRX1200S in 2003 and what a revelation. Excellent wind protection from the smallish fairing, lovely engine, good economy at cruising speeds of 110-120mph and exceedingly comfortable - no vibration, in my opinion a stunning looking old style bike. I have had several bike since but I hold the ZRX1200S as probably the best motorcycle I have owned to date (I'm 52 and have been riding since I was 16).
