Great bike.. retro styling, plenty of mods available , great online community (ZRXOA). You can tour on it, great for two up riding and yet still fun to be a hooligan on it. I had an 1100 and I still miss it.
At 6'1 & 215lbs I'm partially drawn to it because of the height/size.
This is my second season, I've owned a Virago 750 and now a VZ800 (both cruisers). I like the comfortable, upright riding position, although I wouldn't mind something that offered a little more satisfaction in the twisties. I'm not much of a hooligan on the streets, I like to take it easy and enjoy the ride - I wouldn't mind owning a bike that could handle some casual track duty, however.
I read somewhere that the ZRX had "ancient suspension" is that true?
A lot of guys I know who have Rexes are your size. Its a big bike and upgrading to ohlins is a common upgrade. Lots of guys track their bikes... Heck its a replica of a race replica of a race bike ridden by Eddie Lawson's bike after all.
RonnieRev should be along shortly he has a 12 with ohlins.
