Okay. I can probably make it through the night even though there wasn't a Concourse, SV 650 or Boss Hoss in the test, as long as there was an old generation VFR in there...

So how do they compare to the Buell?

Blast?



How do they compare to the world's largest diesel locomotive?

Didn't I read somewhere the Z1000 was a tank slapper?

Since Suzuki makes the SV650, and the SV1000 is an offshoot of that I'd say the Z1000 droped it's drawers and got it's tiny hiennie paddled.

Besides Suzuki's rock, and Kawasaki's,,well,,don't.

Is there a prize for guessing? Let me guess, the one that didn't come in second place?

<blockquote>"Didn't I read somewhere the Z1000 was a tank slapper?"</blockquote>

Only if rider induced. Like any other sport bike with aggressive geometry, the Z1000 has a very slight headshake in uncommon conditions. A steering damper will fix it. Is it needed? Not for most riders with experience.

<blockquote>"Since Suzuki makes the SV650, and the SV1000 is an offshoot of that I'd say the Z1000 droped it's drawers and got it's tiny hiennie paddled."</blockquote>

Yep, that seems like sound logic.

<blockquote>"Besides Suzuki's rock, and Kawasaki's,,well,,don't."</blockquote>

A retort here would have been worth the effort had you added any sort of constructive argument to back up your statement. Otherwise I just figure you don't know what the hell you're talking about and that you were just getting tired because, afterall, tonight is a school night.
