I want one. I'd even take the orange (OSU colors!)

Ugh, not even close... Not with that GpZ750 lump in there... Think "Speed Four" instead of "we still had tooling left over from 1983".





A Z636 for around 6-7k could be cool.

I sat on one at the San Mateo bike show last fall. I have a 28" inseam and I could barely get both toes on the ground. I'd say the seat height is closer to 32" off the ground. Maybe the preload was cranked up on the bike at the show relative to the one MO rode?

Europe gets one, without the pipes (4 into 1, regular can), there was a blurb in a recent mag issue (can't remember which one) and was colored green. Apparently small chance of it coming stateside, though, and it loses even more suspension adjustability and loses the inverted forks, too. A UK (MCN?) site has a little blurb on it, do a search.

it's really Buell-sized. I was surprised at how compact it was.



Fortunately at 5-10, I fit on just about everything.

Default Try a Gurney.

Dude, how short are you? Burns is 5-7 and says he was flat-footed.



Maybe you need to save your coins for the Gurney Alligator.

Default Re: What's not to like? (and a question)

I don't disagree totaly with you, but my first round America trip was on an un-faired Suzuki GS650GZ, with a backpack straped to it. 500-1000 mile days. It was miserable in the rain but it was one he!! of a trip. Ya got used to the 80mph wind.
