I agree 100%. I'm a lot north of forty and I've owned a lot of other bikes, but only one other zuk, that was a V-Strom 650. It was a great bike. Now I'm on the F. It definitely hit a sweet spot for me with the egos, motor and protection, and the kind of riding I do. Great for commuting, weekend mountain runs, and highway miles.A bit north of 40 myself and have owned different types of bike. Must admit that they finally made the bike I have been looking for the last 10 years in the GSX-SF. Right amount of sport/street and light touring. All while making it fun to ride.
