Sat on a zx6-10-14, fz1, R1 and a z1000 this weekend.
I sat on some bikes for the first time, some not for the first time. I found my perspective of each bile profoundly different after riding a few thousand miles on my first bike, 2009 versys.
Here are some meat puppet specs.
6'4 cruising height, 6'5 in boots
size 15 boots
Thoughts: All bikes, even the 600+ lb hyper bikes felt tiny compared to the versys. They all felt ridiculously light due to a lower center of gravity. That being said the versys feels more "right" when on it, its tall but still feels light to me.
zx[6|10]r and R1 - These were simply toys, while I could mount my feet on the pegs and get to the clip-ons it simply felt like I was on an 8 year olds mini bike. I immediately felt a sense of sadness, I will probably never ride a super sport. But then again this means i'm exempt from Mohawk helmets and a lot of douchebaggery. The bikes are simply to short, to compact for a shreck sized man.
zx14 - They had a used 2009 on the lot. It was "murdered" out with spikes on it, a side out exhaust and well it just looked like crap due to "customizations". I hopped on and immediately felt like it was just as light as the zxYr's. I could easily bounced the bike back and forth between my kneed whiles standing. In a seated position with my feet on the pegs there is only a mild forward lean compared to other supersports. It feels good, it feels like it was built for giant.
z1000 - This is why I went to the dealership. Its hot, its awesome. This bike does it for me......except that I will probably catch fire because my boots hit the exhaust.... I love this bike. I will marry it. The wife was equally in love with it as well.
fz1 - This felt the best next to the zx14, I have sat on first gens and this was a 2012. The seat, the pegs, and the inputs were all spot on. If it wasn't such an archaic design (aesthetically) this would be my definitely next bike. However I find these are sold cheap nationwide with just a few miles on them.
All in all I was mostly impressed with the ZX14, its much more comfortable than I thought it would be.
