I Ride: 2007 ZX14, 1986 Suzuki Cavalcade 1400
I'm 6'1" a bit 'fluffy' at 220 and traded in my GPz1100 for the 14. I,too, loved the idea of the style, the exclusivity, and the wow factor of the K-bike, and came close to actually pulling the trigger on one. However, what sold me on the 14, besides the great price, was the familiar feel of the bike, and the comfort of the whole package. I'm 52, have been riding for about 35 years, and with the simple addition of a bit taller ZG windscreen, a set of Gen-Mar handlebar risers, and a set of the Cordin peg lowering brackets, I have a ride that really fits me wonderfully--a sort of 'Gentleman's Express' if you will. About $200 in mods that made a great ride even more satisfying. I'm not the least shy now about triple-digit rides at triple-digit speeds. Take the 14 and pocket the cash you'll save.
