oooohhhh New Bike P'raps

Just got the ZZR serviced and was offered under £100 a month over 3 years to PX for a new Z1000sx.

I have to say I love the looks and the power, size etc seem fine to me. I really dont use half of the ZZR, in fact when I bought it I bemoanded the fact there wasnt a decent replacement for ZX9. Well on paper the Z1000sx is a ZX9.

before anyone says the ZX10 is not a replacement for the ZX9.

test ride tomorrow pm.

However

If I waited a couple of years could go for something more exotic, as by then SWMBO will have her stables and I believe we are looking at the cost of a Panagale R, and a Bandit 650 for those!!!!!!!!!!!!!

deal done

Test ride yesterday.
At first I thought this bike is odd. It felt gutless for a 1000cc more like a 5 year old 600.

However looking at the clocks the mph was rising quite steadily.

Riding position is also odd - the bike looks sporty but the riding position was much akin to my old GS, just lower to the ground. Very neutral and very comfortable.

The wide bars means it leans over with just a nudge.

I think I will miss the blistering acceleration of the ZZR but I think the Z1000 will be more comfortable over a full days riding and not really any slower.

Pick it up next Saturday
