I hadn't ridden a motorcycle in 33 years. I took the MSF class, got my M license, took a couple of private lessons from MSF folks and went out and bought a 2006 Z750S with $11,000. I very much like the sit-up riding position. I have no strain on my wrists or back. I like having my feet under me - not behind ala sport bike or in front ala cruiser. The Z750S handles well. Some reviewers have complained about needed suspension modifications but for me that is just tweak talk. I put on some frame sliders and rear spools (no center stand - darn!) and I was good to go. The bike handles well. I have pilots front & rear and the Z750S can get up and move. Twist your right hand and you are doing 80 mph. Twist a wee bit more and watch out. I'm getting almost 50 mpg. So far I'm only in for 500 miles but I take a ride every day, every other day and I return home with a big grin.
