I've owned the zx9 , zx6 and now I have a zx10 that I won't ever get rid of. If you don't think a 1000 will fit your lifestyle, don't do it but stay with the kawi!

comfort is nice for sure

I'm thinking about the 2009 zx6 due to great reveiws it had. Would love a liter bike, zx10, but I'm almost certain that would be instant death to me.

Also considering a zx9 if I can find a clean low mileage one.
Do it man..........Im on the prowl now for another bike. Cant go wrong with that 7r... For sure comfortable

Those are all pretty nice, the new Z1000's are supposed to be more comfy, the 06 i have vibrates alot but i like the body position, the new ones are supposed to be improved. its like 2k cheaper than the tuono.

Haha, You say it like there is something wrong with that! I just changed up the gearing a little bit and added a 1/5 throttle mod and it's like a brand new bike. But you have plenty of time to decide!

Sit on a ZX6R first.. just like any other SS600 it ain't all that comfy for longer rides. I feel your pain, that's why I got the 2nd 12R.. cause it's comfy...
