Don't forget to include a ZRX1200R

This article was pretty much useless. It compared two drastically different bikes and really didn't achieve anything that wasn't already obvious--the VFR is comfy and kinda sporty, the ZX-R is more sporty and still kinda comfy. A very poorly matched comparison. If you want something interesting, compare the VFR to the new Futura and the ST4.

Another quick point. Given an approximate weight of 500lbs for each bike, and an approximate power of 100hp, an increase of 10 lbs (2% of total weight) would be offset by an increase in 2hp (not 1hp). Do the math.

I really like the idea of comparing so called 'real world' bikes, and enjoyed the article. I only wish more bikes had been selected to give a better cross section of what's available out there for those of us who like the replica speed and handling but would also enjoy longer trips without suffering from a sore back and neck.

How come when I preview this comment my name changes to 'anon squid'?

What do you think about roominess for over 6-footers?

I am 6-3. Is it comfy for a couple of hours with feet on back pegs? Thanks. Darrell. I am comparing it to the Yamaha FZ1.
