I'm the same age as you, had my bike for a year, and I still feel the same way as you. Enjoy!

Congrats Spanners!
Almost 59 here and I got giddy too. Still in the break-in and adding the accessories to make it 'mine.'
I hope the two of you share many many miles and smiles together!
Please share pics as you go.
Cheers

Well I was 55 on June 21st and collected my delightful green Z last week..........status set as grinning like a loon.

Very very impressed with it

If you don't get excited buying a new bike, you might as well keep your money. In other words: ENJOY!

I've just purchased a low mileage 2nd hand unit, i'm 60 and have just changed from a 1290 superduke R,   love my jaffa Z900 and expect you will too,
 Get someone who knows what they are doing to set the suspension for you though,  Lots of happy miles to you.

Cheers folks, a jaunt down to the coast this morning with some pals for a spot of breakfast by the sea.

The suspension feels fine but the dealer mentioned an Ohlins technician could set it up just for me, runs about £100. Money well spent?

If you're going to ride it hard, then yes.  If not then no

Congrats, Spanners!!

I feel exactly the same way.
The bike is just stunning to look at. Plus, I found it really comfortable. A lot more than I expected since this is an UJM.

But for me, the more addictive thing is the growling that it makes when you are in the low RPM range and then you give it the beans. Is amazing.

And the engine pull is very surprising for me. When it goes past the 6...7...8 thousand RPMs is incredible.

I just love it...

hi Rudders,  i'd recommend that you get it done, even for normal riding it'll be better and if you can get someone like that to do it for you,  at least you'll know that its set correctly,
