daily riders post up

I test rode a buell at mancuso and it lacks power and it had the race kit.I wanted an rc51 awhile back but they are always too expensive.I have found an fz1 and a z1000 that are both pretty cheap .I would rather have fuel injection than carbs , but the z1000 that i am looking at is pretty rough.

I have a 06 GSXR600, and it's fairly comfortable for short distances, i.e. less than 40 miles. I rode 70 miles today from Galveston, and when I got off, my hands, arms, legs, thighs, and especially my , were all numb.

But I sat on my friend's 06' R6, that was hard and flat, and my other friend's ZX-6R and it wide.. but still hard. I need a couch.

I suggest the VFR Intercepter from Honda. I have friends hat have both the older single sided swingarm to the new twin pipe of the 04. The older one rides from Clear lake to El Paso and The other rides from la Porte to Dallas. Both say they enjoy it totally. Typical Soreness of the long ride joints but not if you where riding a normal Super Sport. I ride a 06 GSX-R 1000 and I can put almost 300 in a day and be ok and I broke my back 3 years ago. To me the intercepter is a litlle more agreeesive ride wise than the Yamahas your looking at but the Yamahas do have the power if wanted.
