FZ1 rider considering big Strom
Hey guys. My name's Dan, age 27, air traffic controller from Cleveland, OH. I currently ride a 2002 Yamaha FZ1. I'm 6'6", 210 lbs so my choices in "sport" motorcycles are very limited. Mainly the reason why I chose the FZ1 in the first place. It's a wonderful bike for most things, however I'm starting to lean more towards the touring side of sport touring, and a recent issue of Motorcyclist magazine got me considering the big 'Strom (the article about the Iron Butt ride one of the editors did on the DL) I wanted to get some opinions from the congregation about selling my FZ for the 'Strom. Anyone have any experience with both? I've always been intrigued by a V-twin sport, and I almost bought the SV1000S when I got the FZ, but it was just too uncomfortable. I'm struggling to find a very comfortable setup on the FZ, and I do remember sitting on the big DL once and thinking wow, this bike is really good for someone as tall as I am.
HELP! I can't decide what to do!
