For my exp level, weight and living conditions I think Z750 is a better match for me... I also liked the bigger upper fairing on 750. the only minus is its gauges.. Z1000 gauge is cooler...
When I was looking last year, the Z750 was almost $20/mo more to insure than the Z1K.

I bet you can find a better deal out there.

Blacked out looks killer

BTW you can do a COMPLETE suspension swap on this bike with the 05-06 636 forks and shock. Go to riderforums.com, that site revolves around the Z1000

Take your time and get what you really want, a good deal will come up. Careful offering someone a price you aren't 100% willing to pay based on what you know about the bike, makes for bad business practices IMO. Of course you could offer then go see the bike and find something that wasn't mentioned(smoking engine, whatever) and back out. All I'm saying is if you make an offer, be prepared to back it up with the $$. Good luck in your search Alex

You're a cool dude in my book man No doubt you got your ethics in line! We're just excited about seeing ya get a new bike as you are man(well maybe not quite!) but be patient, I've made the mistake myself of waiting for the right bike then jumping the gun on something only to see the same type of bike for cheaper listed the next week :/: Take your time and get what you want, the low miles are definately a HUGE + though, nothing beats something you can hop on and take a 500 mile trip with absolutely no worries of any issues. That's why I love the VFR

thanks, bro

I take Hardcoresteve's advice - if i have doubts in my soul - this bike is not for me. It's like falling in love you know? When we are in love we know it without doubts. I had the same feeling with my shadow - i saw it i knew i wanted it immediately!
