The Z750S avoids some of the Z1000's polarizing styling elements, with a single muffler instead of four, and a larger fairing that works elegantly with the bike's relaxed, sit-up riding position. It creates an impressive bubble of still air encompassing your helmet, which helps make the Z750S suitable for day-long rides. Although 6-foot-3 Carrithers will likely want more legroom, it accommodated my 5-foot-10 frame perfectly, with room to fidget and a pleasant absence of pressure points. My only complaint concerned the seat's angle, which creates that 32.1-inch minimum height. The tendency to slide forward--plus the non-slip cover--made me feel like I was getting a full-time wedgie. The suspension rates suited me splendidly, and what little vibration there was--in the pegs and, to a smaller degree, the seat between about 7000 and 9000 rpm--arrives well above highway cruising speeds, where it's turning about 5000 rpm in sixth gear.
