Does anyone here have real world comparison experience with the 919 and the ZRX11/1200? Originally I was looking for a ZRX, but found this bike for small money and took it.

How much do you want for the Penske??
Figuring out a reasonable cost solution for the suspension is going to be a make or break for whether I keep the bike.
