Any Females on Z1000?
My Girlfriend is dead set on having a Z1000 as her first bike.
This isnt going to happen tomorrow, she is just now getting signed up for classes (which will have Buell Blasts)
I kinda think she should get a EX500, SV650, or a Buell blast for at least a year --dump that a couple times and then maybe consider a Z1000....
On the flip side of the coin, if she gets a Z1000 I could borrow it when my Ninja 1000R is broken down, which may be quite frequently. While I had my ZRX1200 I always secretly lusted after a Z1000....
Pretty much any bike we decide on will have to be lowered. Every bike ive owned made me tippy toe (damn my short stature!)and she is like 2-3 inches shorter then. im like 5'8 175lbs she is 5'5 120lbs. I have the feeling she is going to grow out of the blast quickly--but i think an EX500 might last some amount of time. What about that suzuki GS-500 with the new fairings? How do they stack up with the EX500?
Whats kinda funny is she thought the ZZR600 was to big (probably because of its fairing makes it appear larger) but the Z1000 isn't.
