WIN Bridgestone tyres for our star letter!
Having read the article in the August issue on ‘Living with the Kawasaki Z900RS’, I would like to respond about the practicality of the fact that you also ‘don’t want to stick luggage on it!’ My wife and I have recently returned from a trip to Bruges on my Z900RS complete with Oxford Lifetime panniers and tank bag. The luggage fitted brilliantly to the bike and was well clear of the exhaust pipe. My wife said she had plenty of room to sit and her boots remained snug on the rear footpegs. Yes, the seat is small compared to other bikes, but she also said that having been touring with me round Europe on my Suzuki GSX1400 (I part-exchanged it for the Z900RS) the Kawasaki was far more comfortable and she felt she could sit all day on the back. It handles really well two-up with luggage and is effortless to ride. Please tell your readers not to be put off from touring on this great machine as it’s a joy to ride long-distance. Bertie says: “Fair play to you and the wife, Guy! My feeling is that it’s just a shame to mar those beautiful lines with luggage, but it’s good to hear that you think it’s a fine touring machine.” Guy Taylor
