Glad to see you are getting better. Hope all the numbness goes away. My right arm has the same issue after an accident 3 years ago. It can be annoying. As a Kawasaki enthusiast I would also go with the z900. I plan on picking up a used one to go with the 73.

Yea we call the Z900 completely modern bikes that look retro. Nice bikes. Fast. Too tall for me and there are some "details" I don't care about it..the radiator isn't very well hidden, the urine cup master cylinder and the fact that you can see the radiator cap while sitting on the bike, but hard to deny it's capabilities and good looks.

It doesn't matter what I ride, where I ride, how fast I ride, or how far I ride... it only matters THAT I RIDE...EVERY DAY. "Ferret"

What bike is perfect? None- they've all got something that makes you squint at it and ask why the manufacturer did that.

Here's a good case in point- the Tracer 900 GT. **** bike is ugly as any sum-beetch bike out there, especially in the paint schemes presented so far to us 'Muricans. Why dammit? That's a bike I coulda fallen for but it's seriously fugly and Yammie just cheaped out on too many aspects of its design & components- great concept, weak execution, & still charged too much for it, IMHO. Coulda been a serious winner here, a definite contender over the Ninja 1000 but Team Y dropped the ball. I want to like the bike but....
