After 11 years, I finally decided to buy a new bike (other bike is a 1996 Suzuki Katana 750), and it was down to FZ1 or N1K. Ultimately I decided on the N1K (obviously).

I'm 44 and have a long history of riding, though prior to the Kat is was all dual purpose or dirt bikes/ATV's (I race MX and harescrambles still).

Picked the N1K over the FZ after test-riding both. Both were offered at the same price ($8600). I like the fact that the N1K has available factory hard bags too. For all the features the Ninja has over the FZ, plus it shifted better and had more torque it seemed, I thought it would be the better bike for me. Plus, insurance was significantly less.

Not sure what I will focus on for mods yet, but I think the hard bags are my first priority. I picked it up last Saturday, and I've put about 100 miles on it so far. So far, really liking it. Pulls like a tractor and is very smooth. Rides better than the Kat as well (but of course - it's 19 years newer, so expected!).
