Just bought the bike after selling my KLR. I wanted something street only that offered some comfort and doability on a few "long" rides through out the year with occasional two-up duty with my wife. Mostly the bike will be for pleasure rides around the outskirts of town and my short commute to work, but I am hoping to buy some soft saddlebags and use it for the mentioned "long" trips; i.e. 2 to 3 hours up the road to phoenix, or to Tombstone, Bisbee etc. Anyone else using a ZZR6 for the same type or riding? So far the bike is more comfortable, keeps me out of the wind better and more stable than the KLR, and I'm sure it will be better on the HWY/Freeway. Anyway, just wondering..
