Your not alone. I've got about 35 years worth of riding time and feel the same. Every time I ride my Z I can't help but like it more. I've never owned anything but a sportbike,currently have an 08 CBR 1000 as well as my 2010 Z. The group I ride with are all on sportbikes and at first I was reluctant to take the Z on group rides. That went away quickly when I found that staying with or leading the pack is effortless on the Z. Yet after a 300 mile day I want to ride more and they are all ready to call it a day. Long live the Z. Maybe it's time to sell the CBR and get more accesories for the Z.
