Hey Everyone!

Trying to get a good sense on the average size (height) of Z1000 Owners. I am 6'3 and considering picking up a new 2011 z1000 - any information would help. Thanks!

Awesome thanks a lot guys! The info is really helping. Would love to see a photo of someone my size or close in riding position from the side. Keep the good info coming!

6'1" 215lbs. My '03 fits me perfect. The occasional cramp in the hip flexor, but usually only when I'm a little dehydrated.

Hey So-Crates, sounds like you fit your namesake perfectly then!;)

I do. My name is Tom, and I have a mohawk.:D

I'm 5'8 and around 165. Fits me very well. Maybe a TOUCH tall, but totally livable.

6' 5", 255. Bars wee a tad low and pegs a tad high for me ('06Z). I added some risers that that helped a lot. Switching from a cruiser to a Z takes a bit of getting used to. Great bike, though.

6'3 at 189, position is as perfect as my GSXR1k isn't, the wind protection makes me feel like a barn door skydiving, sometimes. Sometimes it's perfect. My 15th bike and I have never had this variation of wind protection before, depending on head wind, it can feel like I'm in a bubble, or in a wind tunnel testing jets. Legs allways feel great.

I am going to start a new thread on wind protection and the CA windscreen I just got.

I'm 6 foot 165 pounds best sport bike ergos I've ever ridden. Watch my friends suffer on longer rides with their gixxer's. To me the bike rides like a ninja 650r with more power and a narrower seat
