Agreed, I don't regret my decision in the least. This bike is amazing. It's stunning it isn't more popular.

People are dumb.

I live in ontario just outside of toronto where insurance is rediculous and in my opinion the z1000 is at the top of the list of bikes that are "best bang for the buck".Just picked mine up in march of this year and i love it

I'd love to have a ZRX for long touring. Their much heavier and smoother, and that engine is killer. Howeer, the z1000 is faster and much more fun to ride if you want to be a hooligan.

Both bikes are awesome. My z is here to stay, though.

Gotcha. I've spent a lot of time on the WI/MN border running the Miss, I still think I recognize that area.

I used to live by Lacrosse, so that side of the state was a good playground for 10 years.

How are you doing with the white/orange/black paint scheme? I debating between a used W/O/B '10 and a leftover black/green '11. I probably like the green better - it is a fire-breathing Kawasaki - but the used '10 is a better deal. I don't know if I'll get tired of the look over time.

I like the pearl white and orange for now.

Could always spray over a new color, or plasti dip it.

Make it yours, and have fun.

I just seen an '11 green one on craigs for 6k, here http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/da...373968095.html
