Looking for advise/opinions

Due to health reasons, I can hardly ride my '04 ZX10 anymore. The severe angles are just killin me. I did not want to part with this bike, but I need to find another bike that is physically more forgiving.

I have looked at the ZX14, Hayabusa, all the metric cruisers... Nothing is doing it for me. I want something sporty, but comfortable, fast but capable of handling luggage for long week-ends. My mind says, "not ready to retire to an ol guy bike" but my body says otherwise.

Any suggestions.....

KTM Superduke, Ducati Monster or the great Z1000. All are great rides, esp. the Duke. It all boils down to money, and how much of it you want to part with. They are all sporty, but you dont have to fold yourself up to ride them.

Attitudes are contagious. Mine might kill you.

And if you're looking at the Z1000 check out the FZ1N or something as well. Good bikes!

FZ1 is a great bike. As is the fjr and concourse.

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39
