I'm just a week or two away from getting a white '08 Z1000. Just got to work out the details with the seller who is out of state and the finance company which is local.
I currently ride a 2000 Speed Triple and love it. It is a fantastic bike with a lot of power, maneuverability, and speed. However, a couple of months ago I stumbled upon the 2010 Z1000 and thought that it was a great looking bike. After reading up on the Z1000 line, I knew I had to test ride one. Luckily for me, my brother recently sold his '03 CBR and purchased a black '07 Z1000. Since he's in Afghanistan doing contract work, I got to ride it to his house. Wow! All I can say is that this is one fantastically fun bike to ride. It's got comfort, speed, and handling just right for my riding style. It was nothing but pleasurable to ride. Funny thing is, if everything goes as planned for the white '08, my brother and I will be like Yin & Yang. LOL!
All in all, I still plan on keeping the Speed Triple, but I know that I'm going to fully enjoy riding the Z1000. Hope the Speedy won't mind, because I know I won't.
Below are pics of my current Speed Triple and the upcoming Z1000.
