Flying Eyebrows

The "eyebrows flying up and down" is what I got this morning at AIMexpo.

The 07 and 09 motors look pretty impressive on paper, but a larger question perhaps only Mr. Yama and Mr. Ha cans answer...

FZ-07 and FZ-09

FZ-07 and FZ-09 were at the AIMexpo this morning, I sat on both. The only subjective feeling I came away with was that the handlebars were too narrow on both, but hey, what do I know? I ride a DR650....

no leg room

I have a 32" inseam. When I road an "old" versys, my legs were tucked under me -- I felt cramped. Unless the "new" versys has much more room from the hip to the foot pegs, I would never buy one.
