Out on the highway and on 2 lane back roads it's great! But the in town handling has become a deal breaker for me. I gave it 10k miles for me to get used to it and it's just not the bike for me. Even being 6'0" and a 33 inch inseam wasn't enough I don't think. If I was 6'4" things might have been different.

When Spring rolls around its going up for sale I'm afraid. Probably look to trade on a first gen FZ1, at least that's what I'm thinking currently.

But to the fans of this bike, if it suits you, more power to ya!
Stupid question, but what position was the seat in? I'm 6'5 and wish the tall position was an extra inch taller.
