Knowing little about bikes, I thought of the three that the Z900RS looks the coolest of the three...so good choice!

I'm guessing the BMW is the GT cruiser and this is a bit more of a sports bike.

Sounds like a watch or two might be for the chop to accommodate this?!

I see the BMW as a SUV and the Z900RS as a modern-day roadster, and yes, I will sell a couple of watches to keep some equilibrium. :D

Happy to say the Z900RS got delivered today. It really is chalk and cheese compared with the BMW, and offers a totally different experience. I know I will enjoy getting to know it and I'm impatient to get it run in...

It's already booked in for a nip and tuck around the rear end and I need to (carefully) remove those daft stickers off the tank.

What a cracking bike.

I'm just going to see one of TMF's videos on it.

Have fun with it.

Cheers. scooter. TMF seems to be a fan of this bike, and I don't normally disagree with his opinions. In fact, it was his review that probably encouraged me to have a test ride on the Z.

I have to admit it was written more in hope than expectation, but still, what a special result it was!

Let's hope Spurs can pull off something special this evening.
