Interestingly, could've been the suspension setup, but I felt like my Ulysses actually turns into corners better. The CR was suspension was set for a 240 pound rider, not my 195lbs. My wife said that, at 6'5", I look like a circus bear on a tricycle.

Now, to see if I can score a test ride on the new Z1000.
Curious if the CR had the stock handlebars or the more upright tubular bar we used for this shootout: American Ride documentary needs footage

Let us know what you think of the Z after you ride it.
