Will take a beating of about 3k oTD on the 12 zx 14 and wife will be pissed. Went to buy one when I got the Z1000 but liked the feel of the 1000 better, now they come out with this one went back and after riding the z1000 for 2000 miles I am convinced my back can handle the riding position. Wife is going to frikken be pissed. But ya know I am getting rid of last kids this june so I want to live a little now. Have two harleys for real long and cool riding but I still have a speed bug. Never should have test rode a busa, most expensive test ride so far.
