I don't think any of the Japanese makes sell anything like the GPZ anymore. All of their sport-tourers are much larger now (FJR, Concours-14, ST) I would look for a used ZZR-1200 or a Honda 1100XX Blackbird.

I think it's about time for the old GPz to be retired. I dropped her
this morning on her left side in my driveway. Foot slipped on the

drop but managed to drive the turn signal through the upper fairing
and scuff up the lowers a bit. She's done her fair share of keeping
me alive for many many years. Even bounced off an antelope at the
Utah GPz rally. But with 60k miles and 12 years I think it's time
for an upgrade. I'm asking the list for recommendations. I'm 6'4"
What have you guys been looking at for replacements? I'm looking for
comfort for me and the girlfriends (wife doesn't do the bike thing)
and I think the way I've set up the GPz is perfect for me. Corbin
seat, GenMar's and the mirror extenders. Any and all suggestions are
Thanks in advance,
