Hey guys, I ended up getting the Ninja 1000 over the FZ1. This Ninja is a very nice bike and I am liking it a lot. Very comfortable and has a ton of low end power ( Busa like ) with the ABS system. This is a definite pick for a do it all motorcycle. I will miss my 06 gsxr 1000 but having my wife ride with me more out weighs any bike. Our 20 year anniversary is in a couple days and couldn't be happier.
