Anyone ride both and can tell which is smoother at highway speeds? I briefly rode the FZ and really liked it and I'd assume the GSX would be similar around town which most of my riding would be. That and the odd day trip or weekend thrown in.
I'd love to own a larger ST such as the FJR or C14 but that's way overkill for my 10 minute commute and 55km speed limit.
I gotz both an FJR and an FZ6.
I usually pick the FJR cuz the weight don'y bother me nun, 'n I like the heated grips, adjustable wind screen, integrated side cases, and shaft drive.
Butt, the little FZ6 iz also a good platform for a ST/ADV bike. It's comfortable, has a 200 plus mile range, and 26K mi. valve checks.
I've added a Cee Bailey wind screen, 'n Airhawk butt pad, heated vest plug, SPOT and GPS mounts.
You could install Oxford heated gripz, and now yer good ta go tour'in.
