Bought a new toy.



Just picked up a new toy.

439 lbs and 150 hp.

It redlines at 85mph in FIRST gear.

It's insane haha.

Hey my last car ran the quarter in 12 seconds....

I just like toys period lol

Actually I bought it mostly to ride to work on and keep miles off my truck and not spend so much in gas and get a new toy in the process. I have a 42 mile one way commute.

Pretty much the same thing yeah. It weighs a little bit more and the engine is tuned a little different and it has a bit more of an upright seating position.

I gave up bikes about 20 years ago which is probably a big factor in still being alive. It was way too easy to go way too fast even back then. But I do admit it was nice to be able to do the 21 mile commute to work in 12 minutes when I really needed to.

Congrats! FZ1's are killer bikes. My Dad had the previous generation FZ, it was the carbed 05. It was a very smooth and fun to ride bike. I have kicked around the idea of getting one for a street bike, but im havin too much fun on the tard! Congrats on the purchase and ride safe.
