First full day on my new 09 FZ 1.
330 miles today, and what a blast. I think she's a keeper...:rider:

I guess she's okay if you like good looking bikes that are really fun! With those similar colors she looks like the VMax's evil step-child.

Great looking bike! I went on a ride today with a guy that had one the same color only he also had a color matched lower fairing. Man, that thing looked sharp! I love that dark metallic gray color like yours. Enjoy!

Nice bike. I had an '05 FZ1 that i put 30,000 miles on with no problem. Been wanting another one. :rider:

Very nice. Yami sure does know how to make a good bike. The evil step-child next to it looks good too.

Sweet! Another one joins the flock. Soon we'll outnumber the bandits around here! :mrgreen:

Hey...a guy can dream, right?

Beautiful bike, one of my favorite color combos. I think I saw this pic over there already but if you haven't discovered www.yamahalfz1oa.com then head over. Spring Arkansas rally. Should be even better than the fall rally was.

Congrats. I talked my 19 year old son into getting his '07 FZ1 in 2009. I told him he'd be begging me to stop after a 100 miles heading to the Hill Country or Arkansas on the R1 he wanted. I gotta work to keep up with him on the FZ. He plans to keep it when he does get an R1.

I'm looking to replace my Sprint with a more sport oriented ride. The FZ is on the list along with the Honda CB1000R, Kawasaki Ninja 1000 and the Z1000.
