    Definitely not the most comfortable bike, but are you practicing good riding posture?

    BTW how tall are you?

    Well if youre set on a new bike no ones gonna change your mind. But i shaved my seat and my balls have thanked me BIG time, also if you dont do it now, remember to hold yourself up with your knees on the tank and keep your back straight. :cool:

    Try standing up before hitting a bump. Unless you're driving on a really bad road, it should help a lot.

    Btw, I sat on the Z1000 at Daytona last weekend and it looks pretty sweet. Probably a little bigger and heavier than I would like, but otherwise its pretty sweet. I'm trying to find a similar bike that I can use as my DD and take to the track sometimes and not get left behind.

    If you're use to a sport bike don't get one. Every time you look down you'll be at the red line, not much balls
