Going to look at, maybe ride today. Getting ready for next Spring. Oh, yeah, 414 lbs. wet, lighter than an R6.

Going to sell it to pay for the new toy. I LOVE that bike, will hate to see it go. Know anyone who's interested? It's pristine.

Haven't posted the Fizzy yet, may wait until Spring. Most of the FZ-09 reviews talk about the torque, call it a wheelie machine. StrippleR is $2K> than the FZ-09.

Real nice bike. Let us know how you like it. Why getting rid of the fz1 though?

Medic - I had to think about how to answer your question. It comes down to this: I don't know how much longer I'll be riding. Every Spring is a treat when I can throw a leg over the seat, head out to blast around on my favorite backroad twisties and make it home without having fallen down. If you're familiar with the FZ1, you know it's a fantastic all-around bike. After some recent work, my new trick is getting the front wheel in the air when shifting from 2nd to 3rd. That said, for me, bikes are like another aspect of my life and after a while I just want new/strange. I thought the FZ1 would be my last bike but I want to try the new FZ-09. Maybe it will be my last, who knows? So many bikes, so little time.

Now if I could afford a new Norton Commando 961.......

You'll miss the FZ, trust me. Having said that I know what you mean, when I unloaded my Fazer and got the Thrux it was for exactly the reasons you said. I love my Thruxton, best bike I've ever owned for a lot of reasons but in hindsight I would of kept the FZ1 as well. Looking back it was worth way more to me then the $4900 I sold it for.

When it comes to bikes and the ones I owned, sold, wrecked, etc. the regrets I have are............................................... .......................absolafuckinglootly none. Fucking A - let's ride.

Spring is a million miles away. I will be heading up north soon to throw a leg over a sled and tear shit up. Maybe shove my balls in a snow bank. Drink some shine. Y'all know what I mean. If you got a purdy mouth come on up and we will show you a good time.

Soon Lance-san, soon. I plan on going up a couple of times in December to hunt and hopefully ride. January and February as well. Although Mid-February I hope to be headed to the desert in California.

I talked to the salesman @ the stealership about a discounted price I may qualify for. I told him I'm ready to place a deposit but he wasn't able to quote an actual number. I'm still waiting to hear back from him and may inquire at other shops. Maybe they're too busy selling quads and sleds?
