Thanks for the write up.

I've had my eye on this since it was announced. Cycle World and RRW both raved in their reviews of it and now I know the tank is steel. Plastic would have been a deal breaker for me.
As someone else said, a tank bag and seat pack and I'm ready to go. I've done some long days on my ZRX and didn't mind so this looks like a much improved version.
I usually don't have a problem finding something to drool over each year, but this year was pretty poor until the Z showed up.
Someone is going to make this their bike of the year.

I was with the fam on a very tight schedule. Believe me, if I would've been there by myself you would've received a call.

yup. I believe she said that it was hard to get audio with her setup though. Something about the cam being enclosed in a weatherproof case?

I have been known to do 100 plus mile days, sometimes in temperatures below 70 degrees. I like a little pocket of calm air and I like to be able to take my laptops, cameras, chargers and first aid kit when I go. It's nice to have a place to put all my 'Stitch when I stop for my Starbucks too.


A good quality helmet, earplugs, and Aerostich Dariens and thats all you need brother,
