Ride is very good. Seat is deeply padded and then the oblong shock absorbers under the seat and the floor pan really help absorb shock. The seat platform is heavy steel, adjustable fore and aft, and with 12lb pressure in rear tires it wasn't bad. I'm going to drop down to about 8lb pressure. The front caster tires are flat free, big and beefy, but they do have a bit of flex.
I really tried hard to like the Snapper Pro S75X 52" deck with a Kawasaki FS730 I think. I liked the bicycle seat ok but it was pretty bouncy and I doubt I would have ever been able to steer it like I can a ztr. It looks easy on the youtube videos but I spent about 15 minutes on one yesterday and it wasn't for me.
Here are a few more pictures. The first couple are the oval plastic shock absorbers and notice how small the battery is in the 3rd. More like a scooter or an alarm battery than a small auto battery. There is room for a regular battery if I want to change it.
