Aesthetically, I like the bmw. However, I have heard and read about the z400, what you stated. At this point, my main concern is getting comfortable with riding a motorcycle and being as safe as possible. Aside from these two bikes, the only other consideration would be the suzuki tu250 but I really wanted abs. I would probably have the seat shaved on the bmw because the way the seat flares out does make it difficult difficult to touch the ground with both feet. I don’t know if I’d go as far as lowering or not, though. I also don’t know, if I did shave some off the sides of the seat, if it would still conform to the shape of the bike.
