I am going riding today with a friend who has an NC700X. Should I let him ride the FZ 09 ? It might give him buyer's remorse real bad. I remember considering the Honda but the performance numbers were woeful enough the disregard the fuel mileage. I'm glad I waited long enough to see other new bikes come out. It might be like me getting to ride a Super Duke 1290. That was my other choice if I could have afforded it. So do I let him ride it ? He won't ask I will have to offer it. And yes he is a very experienced rider.
