I've got a 98 Honda Nighthawk 750 after owning a CB650, a VFR750, and a KAW ZR7, and I think the NHAWK is fine, with a bit more comfort in riding position than the FZ600. At 15 over legal speeds the Nighthawk is great. 1500 miles in three and a half weeks, eh wot! I only spent $3500.00 too, so I can get lots of nifty accessories, take the woman to Tahiti...etc etc. But I regress, the FZ is what alot of riders are lookin for these days.
