My 161 run was on an eighty-five degree day with no wind. I needed new tires so I backed off. The Z1000 is not as nimble as my Ducati Monster that I use to have, but I think I enjoy riding the Z1000 more than the monster. I would like to buy a newer one. I have my eye on a 2011 Z1000 with 9k for $6500. Wife would go ape **** if I bought it though.
