Hello all, this is my first post! WOW!
Now, on to the question.
I have been riding since I was 16, didn't even get my car license untill I was 18, so all I had for two years was a motorcycle, and I drove it ALOT. I started out on a Honda Shadow 750ACE, then a '95 honda F3, which I got ran off the road on so I replaced that with a '98 Honda F3.
My question is really about how good of a sport tourer the ZX-12R is, I know the earlier years had a little easier ergos, and I will be getting a used one - so you can comment on which really feels the best for a man of my stature(5'10"). And I was also curious as to if I should make the jump from 600, to 1200. As I said i am a very experinced rider, even if I have only been riding for 4 years.
Also, the wreck dinged me up pretty bad when I got ran off the road, had to have major shoulder surgery, and my back and such arn't that great because of it. So this is one reason I was looking at a more ergonomically pleasing bike, but still something I could hit the curves with good. Also I really want to do some distance riding. Cross country even.
